3.9 Using different views
Choose View > Sort by Name to sort objects in a list or graph according to the name of each item. The packages that the objects are resident in are ignored when this option is used; thus, the symbol
vv:allocate would be listed before
Choose View > Sort by Package to sort items in a list or graph according to the package they are listed in. Thus, all objects in the
aa package would be listed together, as would all objects in the
vv package. In addition, the
aa package would be listed before the
vv package. Within a given package, objects are listed in alphabetical order when using this option: thus,
aa:carry-out-conditions would be listed before
Choose View > Unsorted to list all items in a graph or list in the order in which they are defined in the source code. This can sometimes be a useful option in itself, and is always the quickest option available. You may sometimes want to use this option if you are displaying a large number of items and you are not filtering those items in any way.
Note: There are often other sort commands available in the View menu of a given tool, depending on the nature of the tool itself. These options are described in the chapter specific to each tool.
Only those views whose main area consists of a list or a graph can be sorted. In particular, the default views of tools such as the listener or the editor, which is an editor window which you can type directly into, cannot be sorted.
