Class Browser - Navigation Tree
The Navigation Tree lists the classes in either a Hierarchical or Flat view.
The class hierarchy allows the properties defined on a base class to be used for all its child classes (classes created under the base class node). This type of structure eliminates duplication and consolidates related class and property creation. The base class contains common set of properties that all classes will use: Weight, Length, StockCode, &ldots;
These properties only need to be defined once and have a foreign key associated with the base class.
Find Classes or PropertiesSearch for Classes or Properties using the options available in the Find section at the top of the tree:
The Flat view lists all of the classes in a standard list format with no grouping a shown.
|Filter Results||To filter the results, type in a value to search for and click the arrow to the right of the field. For instance, if you type in Pipe, only classes with Pipe in the name will display as shown.|
|Properties||The Properties icon turns off the display of the Navigation Tree and lists all of the properties currently defined in the database in a grid view. All of the properties will be editable using the standard editing options available in the Properties Grid and main Tool Ribbon.|
