Project Browser

The Project Browser displays the following hierarchy of nodes:

After execution of a test or applicationan application node, double-click the node to open all associated available reports.

When you run a Build command in the Project Browser, the product parses and executes each node from the inside-out and from top to bottom. This means that the contents of a parent node are executed in sequence before the actual parent node.

Asset Browser

The Asset Browser displays all the files contained in your project. The product parses the files and displays individual components of your source files and test scripts, such as classes, methods, procedures, functions, units and packages.

Use the Asset Browser to easily navigate through your source files and test scripts.

In Asset Browser, you can select the type of Asset Browser in the Sort Method box at the top of the Project Explorer window. Each view type can be more or less relevant depending on the programming language used:

Use the Sort button to activate or disable the alphabetical sort.

Double-click a node in the Asset Browser to open the source file or test script in the text editor at the corresponding line.

To switch Project Explorer views, click the Project Browser or Asset Browser tab.

To hide or show the Project Explorer, right-click an empty area within the toolbar, and then select or clear the Project Window menu item; or from the View menu, select Other Windows and Project Window.
