The Graphical Views option enables you to navigate through the models saved in the Analysis Service. Models are Graphical Views that have been created and then saved in the Analysis Service using CAST Enlighten - these are displayed in the Model Browser. Selecting a Model in the Model Browser will display more detailed information in the main window.

Model Browser

The left hand Model Browser displays the list of models (saved Graphical Views) that are stored in your Analysis Service:

Selecting an item will:

  • Expand the item to display any sub items (for example in the case of a folder, this will display any Models that were saved in this folder).
  • Display Information / Image / Objects for the selected model.

Model Information

The Model Information section displays information about the model selected in the Model Browser:

Information provided:

  • Object name > Name of the model as saved in CAST Enlighten
  • Object full name > Location of model
  • Object type > displayed as MODEL
  • Creation date > Date the item was created in the Analysis Service

Note that a message stating Code Viewing is not available for this object type will be displayed if you are viewing an item that is not an object - in this case a Model.

Model Image

This section displays an image of the model at the time it was saved in the Analysis Service. To ensure the display of a model image, please make sure that when you save the model in CAST Enlighten, the "Save model picture for report" option is enabled.

The Model is fully interactive: selecting an object will jump to the Object Browser page for the selected object:

Model Objects

This section displays a list of the objects included in the Model. Selecting an object will jump to the Object Browser page for the selected object:

Exploiting the information in a model

A model (Graphical View) is composed of objects and links, which are identified and created during the CAST analysis process. Each type of object and link depends on the language that has been analyzed, and, in the case of links, how the call from one object to another is defined.
