There are two ways that you can examine other classes. The first is to type the name of the class you wish to see into the
text box at the top of the browser. For long class names, you might find it useful to type just a few characters and then press
to invoke in-place completion. Press
and the named class is described.

Because some class names may be potentially quite long, you can use completion to reduce typing. This allows you to select from a list of all class names which begin with the partial input you have entered. See Completion for detailed instructions. When you have entered the complete class name, click on to make this the class being described.
The second way to examine other classes is by using the Superclasses and Subclasses lists available in the hierarchy view. Click on the Hierarchy tab to display the hierarchy view.
The main part of the hierarchy view consists of two lists:
Double-click on any superclass or subclass of the current class to examine it.

class is described.
CAPI:PUSH-BUTTON-PANELin the Subclasses list.
class is described again.
So, using the Hierarchy tab, you can easily look through the related classes in a system.
