genIE - Synchronise Views

The Synchronise Views function is used to compare the view structures between action diagrams where the view is passed using dialog flows or USE statements. If differences are found in the set of attributes or order of attributes, then these can be automatically corrected.

In the Synchronise Views dialog, first press the Analyse button.

genIE will now determine all of the views that are matched to the selected view on a USE statement or dialog flow.

This analysis is performed recursively in both directions, i.e. views that are matched to the selected view and views matched from the selected view.

Once the analysis is complete, each calling and called action block and view is displayed along with a comparison with the selected view.

The synchronization function will then add, remove or re-order the attributes in the view so that the views match the initially selected view.
