2.2.5. Outline ViewΒΆ

The Ada plugin supports the standard Workbench Outline view, such that a high-level view of the code is available to facilitate program comprehension and development.

Outline View for Ada

Specifically, the Outline view presents a hierarchy of entity declarations in the file and annotates the presentation with indicators of entity visibility. Green icons indicate “public” entities and red icons indicate “private” entities. For Ada entities that can appear in both public and private sections, such as the partial and full views of private types, the public section icon will be green and the private section icon will be red.

Entities displayed in the Outline view can be ordered by type, visibility, and name. Additionally, all private entities can be hidden so that only the public interfaces are presented.

Clicking on an entry of the outline will traverse to the corresponding location in the source file.
