Activating Different Modes of Viewing the Inheritance Hierarchy in the Class Explorer
Go Up to Delphi Class Explorer Topics
The Class Viewer pane of the Delphi Class Explorer can display three different types of the tree showing the hierarchical structure of classes and interfaces:
- Derived to Base
- Base to Derived
These tree types are controlled by the Class Viewer modes.
To select one of the Class Viewer's modes:
- Activate the Delphi Class Explorer window by choosing View > Class Explorer.
- In the Delphi Class Explorer toolbar, click the arrow of the Derived to Base combo box. The drop-down list contains the following options: Derived to Base, Base to Derived, Container.
- Select one of the options in this drop-down list. These options define the mode in which the Class Viewer pane displays the classes' and interfaces' inheritance structure.
