The Tree View tab appears when you are adding a user view with the New User View or when you display an existing user view for editing.

Tree View Tab Buttons/Right-Click Menu shows the buttons in the Tree View tab and when to use them. All the functions represented by buttons in Table 1 are also accessible through the right-click menu. Table 2 describes the functionality available in the Tree View tab.

Table 1. Tree View Tab Buttons/Right-Click Menu

Button Icon

Button Name

Description

Add Reference(s)

Adds one or more items to the user view. When you add a reference to an item that has children in the navigation tree, the children are not included in the user view.

Add Tree(s)

Adds an entire user view, an entire folder hierarchy, or single item reference to a user view. When you add an item using this button, you add the item and all of its children to the user view.

New Folder

Creates a new folder in the user view. Use this button to add a folder to a user view.

Remove

Removes anything you select from the user view. The Remove button removes not only what you select, but all children of the item you select.

Move Up

Moves a selected user view item up in the user view. This button changes the order of items in the navigation tree but does not nest items. See Drag and Drop in the Table 2.

Move Down

Moves a selected user view item down in the user view. This button changes the order of items in the navigation tree but does not nest items. See Drag and Drop in the Table 2.

Sort Ascending

Sorts the items in the user view in ascending, alphanumeric order. You can sort items at any level in the user view (for example, the folders directly under the User View or the contents of a folder). The items are sorted only one level down (not subsequent levels).

Sort Descending

Sorts the items in the user view in descending, alphanumeric order. You can sort items at any level in the user view (for example, the folders directly under the User View or the contents of a folder). The items are sorted only one level down (not subsequent levels).

Edit Label

Changes the label used for an item within a specific user view. Changing the label for an item in the user view does not affect the item’s Name attribute or reference, and does not affect the label used for other occurrences of the item in the same or other user views.

To change the label for an item, triple-click the item or right-click the item and select Rename.

Find and Replace

Repairs or updates site, Engine, or Metasys server identifiers in the references of items stored in the user view. The references are used to identify the items in the view, and updates from this feature do not affect the items themselves. You cannot use this feature to find and replace field device identifiers within references. See Find and Replace.

Functionality

Description

Ctrl/Shift Keys

Selects multiple items in the Select Item dialog box, which is displayed when you click Add Reference or Add Tree.

Drag and Drop

Moves the selected reference or folder, and its nested items, to a new location within the user view. When you are dragging an item to a collapsed folder, hover the mouse pointer over the collapsed folder for a moment and it automatically expands. To change the order in which items appear within a parent folder or under a graphic, see Move Up and Move Down in Table 1.

Note: You can drag and drop objects from the all items tree or any other user view into the user view you are editing. When you drag/drop an object with children, only the parent object is added to the user view.
