View Test Environment

As the name already states, the View Test Environment enables you to test Views, without deploying them via Application Context Management. So it can and shall be used to perform a dry-run of created or modified views, e.g. to check the resulting objects of the different levels. But it can also be used to edit data in a hierarchical way. It not only allows the creation of objects via a context menu according to the view definition, but also the editing of properties of all objects once the changes were released with the UBIK® Compiler.

IC Attention.pngThis control will exclusively display properties that were already compiled into the customizing assembly!

The control displays the icons as configured on the respective MetaClasses, a small UBIK® logo if non is defined.

Node styles

The same node styles as in the Class Browser control are used.

Node texts

The same node texts as in the Class Browser control are displayed.


Since 3.7.1 the objects that have the SYSCLS_SORTEDITEM classification on them are sorted by their GroupID, followed by their OrderID, followed by their display strings. ViewItems and objects without this classification are now sorted alphabetically by their display strings.

Selecting an object in the tree will load its properties into the right area of the View Test window. The controls displayed are the very same as in the Object Editor control.
