Using the Structure View
Go Up to Getting Started with RAD Studio
The Structure View displays the hierarchy of the following:
- Source code or HTML displayed in the Code Editor.
- When displaying the structure of source code or HTML, you can double-click an item to jump to its declaration or location in the Code Editor.
- Components displayed on the Designer.
- When displaying components, you can double-click a component to select it on the form.
If your code contains syntax errors, the errors are displayed in the Errors node in the Structure View. Double-click an error to locate the corresponding source in the Code Editor. (Not applicable for C++ development.)
You can use the Structure View to view relationships between components and between database objects. For example, if you add a panel component and a check box component to your form, they are considered siblings. But if you use the Structure View and drag the check box on top of the panel icon, the check box becomes the child of the panel component.
If you double-click a Designer component in the Structure View, the Code Editor opens to a place where you can write an event handler for the component.
Tip: You can control the content and appearance of the Structure View by choosing Tools > Options > Environment Options > Explorer and changing the settings.
