Viewing Hierarchies

Once built, hierarchies can be brought up for close examination in the Hierarchy tool window.

On this page:

Showing the Hierarchy tool window

To show the Hierarchy tool window, do one of following

  • On the main menu, choose View | Tool Windows | Hierarchy.
  • Use Alt+8 keyboard shortcut.

Navigating between the tabs of the Hierarchy tool window

To navigate between the tabs of the Hierarchy window, do one of the following

  • Right-click the currently displayed tab, and choose Select Next Tab/Select Previous Tab on the context menu.
  • Use the Alt+Right and Alt+Left keyboard shortcuts.
  • Click the currently displayed tab, and choose the next tab to display.

Toggling between views

To toggle between views, use the toolbar of the Hierarchy tool window

Toggling between views means showing ascending or descending hierarchy (callee vs. caller methods, parent vs. children classes etc.)

  • Click /help/img/idea/2017.2/hierarchyClassSupertypes.gif to show caller methods.
  • Click /help/img/idea/2017.2/hierarchyClassSubtypes.gif to show callee methods.
