<h1>Outline view </h1>

<p>The Outline view displays an outline of a structured C/C++ file that is currently 
open in the editor area, by listing the structural elements. </p>

<img src="../images/outlineView.png"  alt="Editor View highlighting corrisponding element in the Outline View"></li>

<p>The Outline view shows the following elements in the source file in the order 
in which they occur:</p>

<ul>
  <li>Class</li>
  <li>Namespace</li>
  <li>Include</li>
  <li>Enum</li>
  <li>Enumerator</li>
  <li>Field private</li>
  <li>Field protected</li>
  <li>Field public</li>
  <li>Include</li>
  <li>Method private</li>
  <li>Method protected</li>
  <li>Method public</li>
  <li>Struct</li>
  <li>Typedef</li>
  <li>Union</li>
  <li>Variable</li>
  <li>Function</li>
  <li>Macro Definition</li>
</ul>

<p>You can also sort the list 
alphabetically. When you  select an element in the Outline view, the C/C++ 
editor highlights both the selected item and the marker bar (left margin). For example, to move 
to the start of main() in the C/C++ editor, click <samp>main()</samp> in the Outline 
view.</p>

<p>For more information about the marker bar, see <b>Workbench User Guide &gt; Reference &gt; User interface 
information &gt; Views and editors &gt; Editor area</b>.</p>

<h2>Filtering the Outline View</h2>

<p>You can filter the Outline view by choosing to display or hide the following 
items:</p>

<ul>
  <li>Fields</li>
  <li>Static members</li>
  <li>Non-public members</li>
</ul>

<p>You can select an element in the Outline view, and perform the following actions:</p>
<ul>
  <li>Open the C/C++ Search window box. The Search string box is populated and 
  the element type is selected.</li>
  <li>Complete a text-based search, of a workspace or a specified working set for the 
  selected element.</li>
  <li>Open a selected .h file in the editor.</li>
  <li>Rename Refactor</li>
</ul>
