5.9.17.1.3. Dialog area "Derivation hierarchy"
[Note] Note

In order for single lines to be correctly displayed in the dialog area Derivation hierarchy, you have to select a variable.

Meaning of background colors
Pink Blue Gray
The element has its own value and this value has no counterpart in the parent-element. The element has its own value, but this value corresponds to the value in the parent-element. The value of the element is derived from a higher hierarchy level. The element does not have its own value.

Example:

Functions

You can find the functions in the context menu in addition.

You can find the functions in the context menu in addition.

Remove all children with the same value (also grandchildren)

Values are removed from the children-elements if they correspond to the value of selected parent-elements.

The value of the selected element remains unchanged. (The action should be seen as a clean-up.)

==> The background color of the lines shows this, because the background color of the children-elements changes from blue to gray, while the red background color remains the same.

Remove all overwrites

Removes own values from all children-elements. This assures you that the values of the selected element will be inherited by the children.

The value of the selected element remains unchanged.

==> The background color of the lines shows this, because the blue or pink background color changes to gray at children-elements.

Apply to the whole catalog

The value of the selected element is shifted to the highest catalog element and the selected element loses the value.

(It now of course inherits the value of the parent-element. All children-elements inherit the highest catalog element's value, as long as they don't have their own value.)

If you set the focus in the project selection on hierarchically superior directories, such as din_en_iso, the calculation time rises a considerable amount. The calculation's activity will be signalized through the striped pattern in the inheritance hierarchy field.

Children, in relation to the highest catalog elements, are now gray, or pink, should they have their own value.

Apply to the parent directory

The value of the selected element is shifted to its parent-element and the selected element loses the value. It now, however, inherits the value of the parent-element.

==> The background color of the selected line clarifies this by turning gray, while the parent-element becomes pink.

Set value to the derived children

The value of the selected elements is shifted to all direct children (not grandchildren) and the selected element loses the value.

==> The background color of the lines shows this, because all children-elements turn pink and the selected element assumes the value of its parent-element, so far as a value exists.
