Searching the Help
To search for information in the Help, type a word or phrase in the Search box. When you enter a group of words, OR is inferred. You can use Boolean operators to refine your search.
Results returned are case insensitive. However, results ranking takes case into account and assigns higher scores to case matches. Therefore, a search for "cats" followed by a search for "Cats" would return the same number of Help topics, but the order in which the topics are listed would be different.
|A single word||
||Topics that contain the word "cat". You will also find its grammatical variations, such as "cats".|
You can specify that the search results contain a specific phrase.
Topics that contain the literal phrase "cat food" and all its grammatical variations.
Without the quotation marks, the query is equivalent to specifying an OR operator, which finds topics with one of the individual words instead of the phrase.
Two or more words in the same topic
|Either word in a topic||
|Topics that do not contain a specific word or phrase||
|Topics that contain one string and do not contain another||
|A combination of search types||

Building a graph diagram
The graph control enables you to display and interact with a graph that consists of a set of nodes connected by edges that represent a network of interrelated objects. The following is a summary of the diagram capabilities:
- Supports hierarchical graphs. Since it is not feasible to draw all possible nodes on one diagram, the graph represents a subset of these as a single node. The user can then drill down to see the node or edge of interest.
- Supports inter-edges. An inter-edge is a virtual edge between two group nodes that represents the many edges that actually run between the two groups.
- Supports advanced layout algorithms that minimize edge crossover.
- Supports a client/server model. The application partitions between the client and the server.
- Supports the ability to bind compound rendering methods to nodes and edges. For example, a node may include an icon, two labels, and a circle around it.
- Supports user definable actions on nodes and edges by double-clicking and/or right mouse click.
- Supports scaling.
- Supports scrolling and scaling.
- Supports printing and output in common file formats.
- Supports modifications to the diagram such as adding, moving, and deleting nodes and edges.
