The structure tree is the main place for editing a SystemWeaver model. You can see the model in a tree structure and manipulate it according to the setup and guidelines at your site. For many models, you can do most of the editing right in the tree view, i.e., adding new parts to the tree structure, etc. To learn more about the structure tree, see Get Acquainted With the Explorer Interface.
The tree view provides a grid which can be used to quickly and easily view item information. You can then export that information to Excel or CSV file. By default, the structure tree includes three columns:
- Status shows the Version Status of the item.
- Version shows the version name and number of the item.
- Next Version indicates if there is a newer version available of the item.
Adding Additional Columns
Using the right-click context menu on the header row, you can add some additional item or part information to the grid using the More and Expert menus.
For example, to add attributes, select More and Add item attribute column or Add part attribute column (depending on where the attribute is). In the below example, the "Test Case Status" attribute has been added to the tree grid using More>Add item attribute column and the item's SystemWeaver ID has been adding using Expert>Add field column.
Tip: You can multi-select the properties/attributesto quickly add multiple columns.
Exporting to Excel
Right-click again anywhere on the header row and select Export to Excel. The Excel worksheet will include one row per item/part in the order displayed in the tree. Parts that are not turned on (i.e., hidden) in the tree will not be included. Your output will include other properties which you can just remove.
Tip: There is also a CSV export option if you prefer to deliminate in some other way.
