Scheme layout

A box with the class name in the heading is a starting element when defining a scheme. After moving mouse over this element two icons are displayed:

  • - Selection of one from three setting types:
    • - Settings - vede na kartu Object settings (see hereinafter).
    • checkboxes with class names - if the class participates on class hierarchy (has a parent or child classes), there are also checkboxes with names of these other classes. After checking off another class name there are checkboxes with column names from the given class displayed below. This enables different settings depending on the child - displaying different columns or different graphics of the child card. If the class does not hve neither a parent class nor a child class, only one checkbox with of the given class is diplayed here.
    • checkboxes with column names - there are columns of the reference type of the given class or its parent or child class (depending on check off of the class name above). In this way it is possible to use also relations realized by parent or child classes. Check off leads to the card Object settings and adding a coresponding new object into the scheme.
  • - Leads to the class detail.

  • Object alias - New object name displayed in the scheme design. This attribute can be used when one class should be represented in the scheme with more object types, which occurs e.g. in case of self-reference (record of one class refers to records of the same class).
  • Direction of more objects display - It defines, in which direction objects shall be displayed, if more class records corresponds with one object from the scheme design.
  • Distance between objects in the X axis - The distance between objects in the X axis pictured according to a single object from the scheme design.

This attribute is useful in case that one class shall be represented in the scheme with several object types, which happens in case of self-reference (a record of one class refers to records of the same class). In this case we can decide, to which object type the relation will be pictured.
