The Relationships view shows all the references and the component they point to as a dependency graph for the current workspace or component.

Click on any node to navigate to the component. Click on the line to jump to the actual reference.

Node Dragging

Dragging a node with the left mouse button will move it to a new location. The node will remain at this location until the graph is refreshed, which occurs when changing context, or when certain options or properties are updated.

Traversal Options

The first button in the view settings toolbar opens the Traversal Options menu. From here, you can configure how many degrees of relationship you want to see, and toggle whether or not to show parents and children as a relationship.

Show Only Connected Components

The second button in the view settings toolbar determines whether or not to show components that do not have references. This is most useful when viewing all the components in a workspace. By default, the option is not enabled, so if you have disconnected components in your workspace, you will see them as disconnected nodes.

Node Distance

The third button in the view settings toolbar will open the node distance slider. Use this tool to show a more compact graph (useful for visualizing lots of components and references), or a more sparse one (useful for reading node labels).

Animation Toggle

The fourth button in the view settings toolbar is the animation toggle. Using this, you can enable or disable the animation of the graph. When animation is enabled, nodes will appear to repel one another and gravitate towards their locations before coming to rest.

When a grouping rule is applied in the perspectives window, the Relationships view will show colored backgrounds behind nodes to indicate group membership.

For more information on grouping rules, please refer to the Grouping Knowledge Base article.
