SQL Dependency Tracker 3

Selecting objects

When customizing and interpreting the dependency diagram, you may need to select objects.

You can select objects in a few ways:

What happens when you select an object

When you select an object in the diagram, it's also selected in the Objects in Project pane, and vice versa. The Dependencies pane shows a full list of the object's dependencies.

Unless the object has been hidden, the object and its first-level dependencies are highlighted in the diagram. If the object isn't in the current view, the view moves so you can see it.

For more information on the colors used to show selected objects and their dependencies, see Understanding the diagram.

Selecting from the toolbar

The selection options on the toolbar are:

  •  All selects all visible objects

  •  None clears the current object selection

  •  Connected Objects select all objects that are first-level dependencies of the selected objects

  •   Invert reverses the selection, so that currently selected objects are cleared and vice versa

Selecting by right-clicking on an object

You can access all the toolbar selection options from the diagram and the Objects in Project pane. To do this, right-click an object and choose Select:

If you select All or Invert, hidden objects are not selected.

From the right-click menu, there are more options than on the toolbar:

  • Same Type selects all objects of the same object type
  • Same Owner selects all objects with a particular owner
  • Same Database selects all objects from a particular database
  • Independent Objects selects all objects that aren't connected to any other objects
