The Outline window shows the module hierarchy as an expandable outline -- like an expandable list of folders and documents. It gives you an easy way view and navigate a large model containing many modules.
Opening the Outline window
To open the Outline window, click the Outline button in the toolbar . The Outline window highlights the entry for the selected module or variable.
Opening details from an outline
To display a module’s Diagram window, double-click its entry in the outline. To jump to a variable and open the Diagram containing it, double-click its entry in the outline. To display a variable’s Object window, select it and press the Object Window button in the toolbar (). These options are also found on the right-mouse context menu when you right-click on an item.
Expanding and contracting the outline
By default, the outline lists all nodes in the model. Check the Modules Only box to list only the modules (exclude variables and functions).
The System Libraries folder contains built-in functions, operators and system variables organized by category. Leaving this folder open can be a convenient way to locate the function you need when writing a definition.
The folder actually contains the contents of the Sys_FoundSet system variable. If you want to use an Analytica expression to find a set of matching objects, you can set Sys_FoundSet from a button OnClick or from the Typescript window.
Viewing and editing attributes
- Select the node by clicking it.
- Choose the attribute to examine from the Attribute popup menu
