2216116 - Modifying SymbolContent doesn't make SubSymbols visible - SAP PowerDesigner


  • In an EAM, if a subfunction is created after the function switched to None (Composite View menu), the subfunction symbol is created outside the function symbol.
  • Executing the following script does not display the subfunction:
       sym.SymbolContent = "BusinessFunction.SubSymbols 1 "
  • If the subfunction was created before the function switched to None, the subfunction symbol is created inside the function symbol.
