The Auto Open Diagrams option in the Environment Options dialog and Simulation window allows Cameo Simulation Toolkit to open a tab where you can see a diagram that contains a currently active element in a non-silent simulation (animation is enabled). If you want to enable this option, you need to select true as its value. This is useful when you want to track the simulation current status. Select false as the value of Auto Open Diagrams when you would like to focus on just one diagram and avoid automatic switching or opening of diagrams. 

If the value of Auto Open Diagrams is false and you run a silent-mode simulation of an activity diagram that has a decision node without any decision input, Cameo Simulation Toolkit will open the diagram and highlight all elements including the decision node and open a Question dialog to ask for a decision when the simulation reaches the decision node. However, if the value of Auto Open Diagram is false and you are running a non-silent simulation, Cameo Simulation Toolkit will open the diagram and highlight only the decision node. 

The default value of Auto Open Diagrams is false

How to select the Auto Open Diagrams option in the Environment Options dialog

  3. Click OK.

How to select the Auto Open Diagrams option in the Simulation window 


  • Click the Auto Open Diagrams toggle button in the Simulation window (see the following figure).

When animation with Auto Open Diagrams is used, it must open animated diagrams in the same tab, and not open new diagram windows as new tabs.
In case a Diagram is already open in a tab other than the "active" tab, this other tab will close and diagram animation will be shown in the "active" tab, shown below.
