PhpStorm 2018.2 Help

Creating Relationship Links Between Elements

For creating relationship links between node elements, PhpStorm provides a special mode, in which drag-and-drop technique can be used for drawing links. As a link is created, the corresponding extends / implements clause is generated in the underlying source code. So doing, the extends link is represented with a solid line, and the implements link is represented with a dotted line.

To create a link between node elements

  1. Make sure that uml support resources icons edgemode is pressed on the diagram toolbar.

  2. Draw a link from the source to a target node.

  3. Specify whether the target class should be declared abstract, or implement required abstract methods:
