Define a new stereotype

  1. In the UML model diagram file that represents your system, click UML, and then click Stereotypes.

  2. In the UML Stereotypes dialog box, click New.

  3. Under name, type the name of the stereotype. You don't need to add the guillemets (<<  >>). Under Base Class, choose the type of element you want the stereotype to classify.

  4. Type or choose the other options you want.

  5. To specify additional stereotype properties, click Properties. Type or select the steroetype properties you want. Click OK.

  6. Click OK.

Tip: If you want to define a new stereotype that is similar to an existing one, you can duplicate an existing stereotype definition, and then modify it as needed. To duplicate a stereotype definition, on the UML menu, click Stereotypes, select a stereotype to duplicate, and then click Duplicate.
