Starting from CAST AIP 8.3.23, CAST Architecture Checker will no longer be installed as part of the CAST AIP setup, whether installing CAST AIP from scratch or on a server where a previous release of CAST AIP exists. CAST Architecture Checker has evolved into a standalone component where all feature requests and bug fixes are now managed. This standalone component can be downloaded from CAST Extend (https://extendng.castsoftware.com/#/search-results?q=archichecker).
Up-to-date documentation can be found here: CAST Architecture Checker.
Layers and Sets window
This section provides a detailed description of the contents of the Layers and Sets window within the CAST Architecture Checker. The window allows you to:
- Define a new Layer or Set
- Define an Unassigned Layer
- Delete items (Layers and Sets)
- Hide items (Layers only) from the Model tab in the Main window
- View the Properties (name and type) of a Layer or Set
- See Glossary for a description of Layers, Sets etc.
By default, the Layers and Sets window will display all items (Layers, Unassigned and Sets). However by using the View sets option (View menu) you can hide Sets if required.
The Filter field allows you to enter character strings to "filter" the display of items in the window. Filtering is instant - i.e. it occurs as soon as any strings are entered in the field.
Right click menu options
The following right click menu options are available for items selected in the window:
|New layer||This option enables you to define a new Layer. See Define Layers, Sets and Dependencies for more information.|
|New set||This option enables you to define a new Set. See Define Layers, Sets and Dependencies for more information.|
|New Unassigned||Enables you to define a new Unassigned item - see Create an Unassigned item for more information.|
|Remove||Deletes the selected item (the item is physically deleted)|
|Hide from Model view||This option will hide an item from the Model tab in the Main window (the item is not physically deleted and will still available in the Layers and Sets window).|
The option is only visible if the item is displayed in the Model tab in the Main window.
|Properties||Displays the Properties dialog box (see Define Layers, Sets and Dependencies) in which you can modify the name of the item and change its type.|
