Relationship Rules

The relation view that appears when you select a symbol depends on the type of symbol. You have control over this in the Relation Window Options. For example, you can specify that if you select a function in your source code, the Relation Window will show references to that function. And, if you select a class name, the Relation Window will show the classes derived from it.
