Selection lists are very common in the product, they let you select items in a

 

list of available items.

Types of selection

Most selection lists display objects contained in the current model or in

lists

individual packages contained in that model.

Other selection lists such as the following allow you to display both objects contained in the current model or its packages and objects contained in other models or in packages of these models:

Select Diagrams. From this dialog box you can select the diagram to which you want to apply pre-defined display preferences.

Add Shortcuts. From this dialog box you can select objects to include them as shortcut in your model or package.

Add Objects. From this dialog box you can select objects to which you want to attach extended dependencies.

As the Include Sub-Packages tool can allow you to display all objects in the current model regardless of packages, objects in the list may have the same name and cause you problems to uniquely identify them. To do so, click the Customize Columns and Filter tool in the list toolbar to display the Customize Columns and Filter dialog box, select the Object Location check box and click OK. The Object Location column appears in the list and allows you to know where objects have been defined.

For more information on the Customize Columns and Filter dialog box, see section Defining a filter on a list.

Confirming objects

You can select objects that are not visible in the current list by clicking the

selection

Include sub-packages tool.

 

However, if you deselect this tool before you commit your selection, the

 

objects you selected are no more visible in the current list. That is why when

 

you want to commit your selection, a confirmation box ask you if you want to

 

include non visible selected objects with the current selection.

 

If you answer:

 

<HV Objects selection is composed of the objects selected in the current list

 

together with non visible selected objects.

 

1R Objects selection is only composed of the objects selected in the current

 

list. Other non visible selected objects are ignored and deselected.
