Question Seeking examples

I am just starting out to learn UML. I have been assigned to write some UML for existing C# code. Yea, yea, I know it is a waste of time now that the code is done and design complete, just convice my boss's boss of that.

Anyway the code is the style of "file" "edit" "format" "action" "help" Pull down style.

So can anyone refer me to samples of UML and the "user interface". I've googled, jeeves'ed and still not finding any examples

I don't expect to document more than just the interface part at this time. If I get between 9 & 30 pages of charts and diagrams, the mgrs wont know the difference and be happy. Then I can learn how to do forward design rather than a reverse engineering effort.

I guess it would help a bit to know
what your bosses want the information for
how detailed they want it
and what kind of system it is

If you have the option to do what ever you want mapping things using sequence diagrams is fairly straightforward and quite a powerful yet simple way of capturing the whole process (customer to final output). The downside is that they don't tend to show much detail

If you use use cases I'd try and keep them light and from the perspective of what the Actor is trying to achieve as opposed to what they do when navigating the system (also try and avoid using gui terms like fields and buttons..try to keep the language generic).
Taking this approach may make your use cases more valuable and reusible the next time the system requires redevelopment

I finally found ONE example set by a grad student in Texas or some southern state. It was only so-so useful, better than the zero I had before. More would have been nice. The first results were turned in early March. 4 more were done and turned in in rapid succession. Then I worked my contract to completion in May.

The bosses were required to "upgrade" to CMMI level 3 by Jan 05 and I was the guina pig at producing the required documentation to bring current already completed work. The docs should have been done in proper sequence, but was not. You know how engineers LOVE ? documentation of their work.

It used to be on http://www.utdallas.edu/~zxl012900/course.htm as CS6354.501 but he has removed it when I just checked. I asked him to put it back up.
