By default, all Data Elements, Fields, and Link Fields from a Component are shown.
To show only a subset of entities, several options are available.
Right-clicking an Element in a Diagram opens a context menu with a submenu related to showing and hiding of content.
|Hide||Hide the selected element(s) from the view.|
|Hide neighbors||Hide all elements linking to or linked to the selected Data Element.|
|Show neighbors||Show all elements linking to or linked to the selected Data Element.|
|Show outgoing neighbors||Show only elements that the Data Element is linking to, but not vice versa.|
|Show target||Show Data Element and link to it for the selected Link Field.|
|Hide target||Hide Data Element and link to it for the selected Link Field.|
|Show relation||Show link to a Data Element if the Data Element is visible.|
|Hide relation||Hide link to a Data Element, but keep the Data Element visible.|
Show/Hide Elements UI¶
- Show/Hide Elements button in Diagram toolbar
- Show/Hide Elements in Editor submenu
Data Element Types Filter¶
With this UI, you can quickly show or hide Data Elements based on their types.
For a detailed and manual control, elements and their links can be chosen by hand.
Scripting (Advanced, Experimental)¶
The content of the diagram can also be scripted, which is especially useful if we want to choose elements based on their internal properties without needing to check each element by hand.
A help is provided alongside the script.
Dragging elements automatically snaps them to the grid. To disable this behavior, hold the <shift> key when dragging.
Right-clicking in a diagram opens a context menu where some portions of the model can be shown or hidden. Note that these options can also be changed via regular settings.
At the moment, this configuration is global. If you have two windows opened, it will be applied to both of them.
List all Data Children of the Data Element. Data Children within the same component are shown without the component name (Order::person).
