Executive Block's Item Contents Tab
As mentioned above, the Item Contents tab in the Executive block provides one central loca- tion from which the contents behavior of all other blocks in the model may be controlled. This is particularly useful during the debugging phase of a model when users want to track item behavior through a number of different blocks.
• Enable item contents naviga- tion: Checking this box turns on the Executive's contents navigation capabilities.
• Table Filters: The three table filters checkboxes allow the users to narrow down the num- ber of blocks showing up the navigator table.
• Block type: Checking this box
allows you to limit what type of block shows up in the navigator table. The associated popup allows you to choose from Activity, Queue, Queue Equation and Resource Item.
• Block label: Checking this box allows you to limit the blocks showing up in the navigator table to only those blocks whose block label matches the label you've typed in the associated field.
• H-Block label: Checking this box allows you to limit the blocks showing up in the navigator table to only those blocks found in H-blocks whose H-block label matches the label you've typed in the associated field.
• Open Selected Blocks: Clicking this button will open the block dialogs of the blocks that have been selected in the navigator table. To select a block in the navigator table, check the associated checkbox found in the first column of the navigator table.
• Close Selected Blocks: Much like the Open Selected Blocks button, clicking this button will close the block dialogs of the blocks that have been selected in the navigator table.
• Navigator Table: Each row appearing in this table represents a block currently residing in the model. The number of blocks appearing in this table may be filtered using the filtering conditions that have been described above. Select column 1 of the table is a checkbox col- umn allowing you to select certain blocks appearing in this table. This column's header has a popup which allows you to select all, select none, or toggle the current selections. Select- ing a particular block in this column allows you to do other things to that block like open and
