By naming, by inheritance, by type, free definition and Built-in parameters - Browser


Each of the sub-nodes in the [Templates] and System nodes contains further sub-nodes. Each is explained below:

By naming

Use this node to set up sets that detect objects according to their type and name:

By inheritance

Use this node to set up sets that detect objects that inherit directly or indirectly from another object defined according to its type and name. Inheritance is where one object re-uses another object - typically classes (for example, in Java the code "extends" signifies object inheritance).

The same configuration is used as for the By naming node described above.

See By naming, By inheritance, By type nodes - Right hand panel for more information.

By type

Use this node to set up sets that detect objects purely according to their type. Object types are specified using the drop down list.

Note that CAST uses a predefined list of Transaction entry points (defined in the Templates node). Object types that appear in this list are always considered Entry Points (e.g.: C# forms / VB.NET forms / VB forms etc.).

See By naming, By inheritance, By type nodes - Right hand panel for more information.

Free definition

Use this node to create sets that detect objects using filters that can be defined graphically. You can create complex filters to detect very specific object types - they are much more flexible then the naming, inheritance and type nodes and can even combine multiple criteria:

See Free definition - Right hand panel for more information.

Built-in parameters

The Built-in parameters node is only available in the Data Entities node. This section provides:

See Built-in parameters node - Right hand panel for more information.

Right hand panel

The right hand panel lists any sets that have been created and also enables you to create new, edit existing and delete existing sets:

Please see the Right hand panel section for more information about using this window.
