Use the Set Browser

In this section you will learn how to navigate around sets using the set browsing control. Later, when there are interesting sets defined, the Set Browser will be used to choose which set of nodes to view in the Set Viewer.

  1. Click on the Sets tab.
  2. Open the Predefined folder in the navigation control by clicking on the right-arrow control icon.
  3. Double-click on the set stuff to do to display it.

At this point, you should be seeing the string "Predefined:stuff to do" as the tab label above the Set Viewer. This set is empty, so no nodes appear in the Set Viewer. With no jobs or files registered with FlowTracer yet, viewing of different sets is not interesting - they are all empty sets. The important point is to notice the names of the System and Predefined sets, and how to navigate to them.

  1. Expand the System folder in the Set Browser.
  2. Double-click on the set nodes to display it.
    Leave this set on display. Later, when jobs are registered with FlowTracer, this display will show added nodes that represent the added jobs.
    Note: The display will show changed states of nodes in the display but it will not change the group of nodes on display unless you click the Refresh icon.
