View source code


If you would like to see the source code that forms an object you can do so as follows:

To do so:

In  all scenarios, a window will be displayed containing the source code that forms the object:

Find button

Clicking the Find button allows you to search for a specific string within the source code of an object. You can also use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+F to search the source code. The following dialog box will be displayed:


Enter the string you want to search for and then choose:

  • The Previous and Next buttons search for, respectively, the previous and next position of the search string in the source code.
  • The Match case check-box controls the case sensitivity of the search (unchecked by default).


Each time a new occurrence of the search string is found, this occurrence will be highlighted in the source code editor. The title of the Find dialog will also be updated accordingly to show the line and column numbers of the string in the source code. After the last occurrence of the string is found, pressing the Previous or the Next button will force the Find dialog title be updated with either "String not found (end of text reached)" or "String not found (beginning of text reached)" to inform the user that he/she has reached the last occurrence of the search string, depending on the search direction.

Line/Column indicator

The source code viewer displays (in the bottom right hand corner) the location of the cursor in the source code (line and column numbers).
