Summary: this page describes how to work with custom links add them to the Level 5 view.

Introduction

Links between objects in CAST Imaging are derived from the imported Application analysis data. These links are static and cannot be edited. However, it is possible to create additional custom links as follows:

  • between custom Object type nodes
  • from custom Object type nodes to Object type nodes resulting from imported Application analysis data
  • from Object type nodes resulting from imported Application analysis data to custom Object type nodes

The following rules exist with regard to which objects can be linked:

  • When adding a link from a custom Object type node, all existing objects (Object type nodes resulting from imported Application analysis data and custom Object type nodes) will be offered for selection if there is no existing link in place.
  • When adding a link from an Object type node resulting from imported Application analysis data, only custom Object type nodes will be offered for selection if there is no existing link in place.
See User Guide - Working with custom Object type nodes for more information about custom Object type nodes.

Adding a custom link

To add a link, right click the object and select Add edge:

Choose the object you want to link to and click Create:

Removing a custom link

To remove a custom link, right click the link and select Delete Edge:

In v. 1.7.x, it is not possible to remove a custom link between two objects. Instead one of the two objects needs to be removed, which will remove the link as well. See User Guide - Working with custom Object type nodes for more information.
