Declaring element (using short form)

We can declare element using some short forms.

Long form Keyword Short form Keyword Long form example Short form example Ref.
actor:a:actor actor1:actor2:Actors
component[c]component component1[component2]Components
interface()iinterface interface1() "interface2"Interfaces
usecase(u)usecase usecase1(usecase2)Usecases

Actor

@startuml

actor actor1
:actor2:

@enduml

NB: There is an old syntax for actor with guillemet which is now deprecated and will be removed some days. Please do not use in your diagram.

Component

@startuml

component component1
[component2]

@enduml

Interface

@startuml

interface interface1
() "interface2"

label "//interface example//"
@enduml

Usecase

@startuml

usecase usecase1
(usecase2)

@enduml

Linking or arrow

You can create simple links between elements with or without labels:

@startuml

node node1
node node2
node node3
node node4
node node5
node1 -- node2 : label1
node1 .. node3 : label2
node1 ~~ node4 : label3
node1 == node5

@enduml

It is possible to use several types of links:

@startuml

artifact artifact1
artifact artifact2
artifact artifact3
artifact artifact4
artifact artifact5
artifact artifact6
artifact artifact7
artifact artifact8
artifact artifact9
artifact artifact10
artifact1 --> artifact2
artifact1 --* artifact3
artifact1 --o artifact4
artifact1 --+ artifact5
artifact1 --# artifact6
artifact1 -->> artifact7
artifact1 --0 artifact8
artifact1 --^ artifact9
artifact1 --(0 artifact10

@enduml

You can also have the following types:

@startuml

cloud cloud1
cloud cloud2
cloud cloud3
cloud cloud4
cloud cloud5
cloud1 -0- cloud2
cloud1 -0)- cloud3
cloud1 -(0- cloud4
cloud1 -(0)- cloud5

@enduml

or another example:

@startuml
actor foo1
actor foo2
foo1 <-0-> foo2
foo1 <-(0)-> foo2
 
(ac1) -le(0)-> left1
ac1 -ri(0)-> right1
ac1 .up(0).> up1
ac1 ~up(0)~> up2
ac1 -do(0)-> down1
ac1 -do(0)-> down2
 
actor1 -0)- actor2
 
component comp1
component comp2
comp1 *-0)-+ comp2
[comp3] <-->> [comp4]
@enduml

[Ref. QA-1736]

⎘ See all type on Appendix.

Bracketed arrow style

Similar as Bracketed class relations (linking or arrow) style

Line style

It's also possible to have explicitly bold, dashed, dotted, hidden or plain arrows:

  • without label

@startuml
node foo
title Bracketed line style without label
foo --> bar
foo -[bold]-> bar1
foo -[dashed]-> bar2
foo -[dotted]-> bar3
foo -[hidden]-> bar4
foo -[plain]-> bar5
@enduml

  • with label

@startuml
title Bracketed line style with label
node foo
foo --> bar          : ∅
foo -[bold]-> bar1   : [bold]
foo -[dashed]-> bar2 : [dashed]
foo -[dotted]-> bar3 : [dotted]
foo -[hidden]-> bar4 : [hidden]
foo -[plain]-> bar5  : [plain]
@enduml

[Adapted from QA-4181]

Line color

@startuml
title Bracketed line color
node  foo
foo --> bar
foo -[#red]-> bar1     : [#red]
foo -[#green]-> bar2   : [#green]
foo -[#blue]-> bar3    : [#blue]
foo -[#blue;#yellow;#green]-> bar4
@enduml

Line thickness

@startuml
title Bracketed line thickness
node foo
foo --> bar                 : ∅
foo -[thickness=1]-> bar1   : [1]
foo -[thickness=2]-> bar2   : [2]
foo -[thickness=4]-> bar3   : [4]
foo -[thickness=8]-> bar4   : [8]
foo -[thickness=16]-> bar5  : [16]
@enduml

[Adapted from QA-4949]

Mix

@startuml
title Bracketed line style mix
node foo
foo --> bar                             : ∅
foo -[#red,thickness=1]-> bar1          : [#red,1]
foo -[#red,dashed,thickness=2]-> bar2   : [#red,dashed,2]
foo -[#green,dashed,thickness=4]-> bar3 : [#green,dashed,4]
foo -[#blue,dotted,thickness=8]-> bar4  : [blue,dotted,8]
foo -[#blue,plain,thickness=16]-> bar5  : [blue,plain,16]
foo -[#blue;#green,dashed,thickness=4]-> bar6  : [blue;green,dashed,4]
@enduml

Change arrow color and style (inline style)

You can change the color or style of individual arrows using the inline following notation:

  • #color;line.[bold|dashed|dotted];text:color

@startuml
node foo
foo --> bar : normal
foo --> bar1 #line:red;line.bold;text:red  : red bold
foo --> bar2 #green;line.dashed;text:green : green dashed 
foo --> bar3 #blue;line.dotted;text:blue   : blue dotted
@enduml

[Ref. QA-3770 and QA-3816][See similar feature on class diagram]

Change element color and style (inline style)

You can change the color or style of individual element using the following notation:
  • #[color|back:color];line:color;line.[bold|dashed|dotted];text:color

@startuml
agent a
cloud c #pink;line:red;line.bold;text:red
file  f #palegreen;line:green;line.dashed;text:green
node  n #aliceblue;line:blue;line.dotted;text:blue
@enduml

@startuml

cloud c #pink;line:red;line.bold;text:red [
