Displaying the Build View
If the Build View is not displayed when changing to the RTC Builder perspective, it can be enabled through the Window menu. Select Views, then Other. In the displayed dialog, select Other, then Build View.
The Repository View can load and read files describing RT Components and display them in a repository. As well as displaying locally-stored files, it can also connect to remote repositories and display the information from them in a tree.
Displaying the Repository View
From the Window menu, select Views, then Other.
By selecting Repository View, the Repository View will be started and displayed.
Locally-stored RT Component specifications are loaded and displayed in a tree view.
Right-click within the Repository View area and select Load File from the context menu. Use the displayed file selector dialog to select an RT Component specification to load. The file selector dialog will only display XML files.
When loading a locally-stored specification file, the absolute path will be displayed at the top level of the tree hierarchy. The second level will display the category specified by the component in the file. The third level will display the name of the component contained in the file.
All components in a directory can be loaded in a single action. Right-click in the Repository View and select Load Dir from the context menu. A directory selector dialog will be displayed. Select a directory to load. All components in that directory will be loaded into the Repository View and displayed as with loading individual files.
Right-click on a component in the Repository View and select Delete from the context menu. Paths, categories and components can be deleted.
When deleting a top-level path, all categories and components below that path are deleted at the same time. If a component is deleted, and there are no more components in the same category, that category will be deleted. If there are no other categories, the top-level directory will also be deleted.
