Description

Instead of requiring that users manually add ports and parameters to the list of "Items of Interest" - we could use a filtered outline of all the namedObjs in the model that would likely be be "reportable". Would want to omit the cruft and only include "leaves" in cases where there are nested entities. The objects with leading underscores would be gone, and there are likely other objects we could safely assume would never be reported on from the model.
Note: I'm not seeing the "tree view" of the model as an option in the View menu anymore, but that would be a starting point for the outline view.

History

#1 Updated by ben leinfelder about 10 years ago

i'm going to push that this be the approach we take for the 2a1 release.

#2 Updated by ben leinfelder almost 10 years ago

I've modified the designer panel to allow it to accept dragged objects (NamedObjs) from the outline view.
This is a major win!

getting there....

#3 Updated by ben leinfelder almost 10 years ago

This is now a viable source for ports AND parameters.
I'd like to use it as the sole source for Dynamic Report Items.

#4 Updated by ben leinfelder almost 10 years ago

now the top portion of the ItemsOfInterestPanel [re]uses the workflow outline view of the workflow contents. you can drag from there onto the report.
