C/C++ Projects view

The C/C++ Projects view displays, in a tree structure, only elements relevant to C and C++ project files. In this view you can do the following:

  • Browse the elements of C/C++ source files
  • Open files in the editor view
  • Open projects in a new window
  • Create new projects, classes, files, or folders
  • Manage existing files (cut, paste, delete, move or rename)
  • Restore deleted files from local history
  • Import or Export files and projects
Files that you select in the C/C++ Projects view affect the information that is displayed in other views.

C/C++ Projects View

Toolbar

Icon Name Description
Minimize Icon Minimize Minimizes the view.
Maximize Icon Maximize Maximizes the view.
Back Icon Back This command displays the hierarchy that was displayed immediately prior to the current display.  For example, if you Go Into a resource, then the Back command in the resulting display returns the view to the same hierarchy from which you activated the Go Into command. The hover help for this button tells you where it will take you. This command is similar to the Back button in a web browser.
Forward Icon Forward This command displays the hierarchy that was displayed immediately after the current display.  For example, if you've just selected the Back command, then selecting the Forward command in the resulting display returns the view to the same hierarchy from which you activated the Back command. The hover help for this button tells you where it will take you. This command is similar to the Forward button in a web browser.
Up Icon Up This command displays the hierarchy of the parent of the current highest level resource. The hover help for this button tells you where it will take you.
Collapse All Icon Collapse All This command collapses the tree expansion state of all resources in the view.
Link with Editor Icon Link with Editor This command toggles whether the view selection is linked to the active editor. When this option is selected, changing the active editor will automatically update the selection to the resource being edited.

  • By Type:  Resources are sorted alphabetically by file type/extension (e.g., all DOC files, then all HTML files, then all TXT files, etc.).

This command allows you to select filters to apply to the view so that you can show or hide various resources as needed. File types selected in the list will not be shown in the C/C++ Projects view.
