PlantUML Pleasantness: Change Line Style And Color – Messages from mrhaki

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/06/24

Learned a new thing today: you can change the line styles in PlantUML to these:

  • plain
  • dotted
  • dashed
  • bold

This in addition to the colour I already knew about. The order of these does not matter:

' Make a dashed line, alternative syntax for ..>
(*) -[dashed]-> "Write outline"
' Make line bold and use color name
"Write outline" -[bold,#green]-> "Find example"
' Only change the color with hexadecimal RGB code
"Find example" -[#ff00ff]-> "Write blog"
' Order of line style and color can be reversed
"Write blog" -[#6666ff,dashed]-> "Publish"
' Use dotted line style
"Publish" -[dotted]-> (*)
