4.6 Expanding and Collapsing a Tree

You can expand and collapse parts of a tree to reduce the complexity of large class hierarchies. Expanding or collapsing branches of a tree has no impact on the functionality of other commands, like /. (See also Go to Class.)

Collapsed branches are indicated with an ellipsis following the class name like in the example below.

     |  Collection
     |    IndexedCollection...
     |    Set
     |    Dictionary
