The basic project data entity in
An object is unequivocally defined by its name and type. You can thus have two objects of different types with the same name while it is not possible to have two different objects that share the same name and type. On the other hand, it is possible to have several representations of the same object: a single object can thus appear at different nodes in a treeview, in different diagrams, or in different projections. However, the object in question remains always the same. In particular, its name and properties remain the same, and if the projections use the same type of filter, the visible children are identical.
While some of the different object representations stem from the fact that the project can be filtered in different manners, some of them are created by multiple object references. In
From the right-click menu of an object, you can access its Properties. Once the Properties panel is displayed, its focus can be modified simply by clicking (left-click) on objects in the Internal Block Diagram. If the Properties panel is not visible, select Object Properties in the Object Panel of the Home Category.
More details about object properties can be found in Object Properties.
All objects have one or several parents and they may also have one or several children. The permitted parent-child relationships and the possible attributes are defined in the meta-model.
See Object Hierarchy for more details.
You can see/set the options where object is defined by using the Options feature in the right-click menu of an object. You can also display the Options tab through the Object Options button in the Object Panel of the Home Category.
