Exporting a sequence diagram to a text file (.csv)

The UML/SD Viewer can generate sequence diagram results in a .csv text file. A .csv file is a text file presented as a table. You can import these results into a text editor, a spreadsheet application or use them to operate a file diff comparison for non-regression evaluation.

You can specify the format used to generate the .csv text file in the Data table preferences.

To generate a .csv text file from a sequence diagram:

  1. After running an application or test node with Runtime Tracing, open a sequence diagram.

  2. From the Runtime Trace menu, select Generate CSV.

  3. In the Generate CSV window, specify the name of the text file.

  4. Select Generate columns header to insert a line with column titles at the top of the file.

  5. In the Columns list, select the sequence diagram elements that you want to export to the text file. Use the Up and Down buttons to change the order.

  6. In the Additional Filters list, select any sequence diagram elements that you want to filter out of the report.

  7. Click Preview to see how the table will appear in a spreadsheet application. The CSV Preview window is limited to the first 100 lines. Click Close to exit the preview.

  8. Click OK.
