I'm having issues doing a sequence diagram for a program. Like this format here: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/9/9b/CheckEmail.svg/220px-CheckEmail.svg.png The scenario is the following: Placing a bet - a customer places a bet for a game. The customer has to be logged into the system with his ID. He determines the bet ( amount of $ ), the ID of the game, and the expected winner. If the team is not participating, then a error message will be displayed accordingly. Otherwise, it will be checked if the customer has already placed a bet on the game. Ok, there's more, but I think that's enough for my question. So you have the customer box and the system box at the top. So I have -> [ Input_stats] and the second arrow is <- [ Team not participating]. How do I do the 3rd arrow? I don't think you can just put it below the second one. Maybe create an extra box ? It would be <- [ checking_double]. So it's basically one requirement and two possible cases. I'm not sure how to display this in this diagram.
