Building Method Hierarchy

A method hierarchy makes it possible to examine a tree-view of the classes where a given method is:

  • defined (icons general add svg).

  • not defined, but defined in the superclass (minusSign).

  • to be defined, because the class is not abstract (icons general exclMark).

To build a method hierarchy

  1. Select the desired method in the Project tool window, or place the caret at the method declaration in the editor.

  2. Do one of the following:
    • Press Ctrl+Shift+H.
