Navigator

Introduction

The Navigator provides access to the full set of your Application's models.

Hint

If the Navigator is hidden, you can open it using the Expore button Explore placed on the Taskbar.

Navigator

Basically, the Navigator shows you:

  • Which types of Models do you use in your Application
  • How are they organized
  • How many Models does each Model Type and Folder has
  • What is the state (in terms of changed, deleted etc.) of each Model

Models' View

As already mentioned, the Models of your Application are organized per:

  • Type (e.g. Forms, Business Objects, Themes)
  • Folders, within a Type (e.g. an APP_Default_Pages folder under the Forms Models Type that contains all those forms that are marked as default for our Application)

Folders

If you right-click on a folder, you will see the following options:

Option Description
Rename Rename the folder
Add Folder Add a new Folder under the specific Model's structure
Add Add a new Model, of the same Type as the parent of your Folder (e.g. if you click Add on a Form's Model Folder, a Add new model panel will appear allowing you to configure a new Form, similarly to what would happen if you clicked the New button of the Taskbar)
Delete Deletes a Folder and all of its items

With right click on a folder you will see the following options:

Models
