Viewing Objects Graphically
OneData provides a graphical display for viewing object relationships. The Show Model menu allows you to graphically view entities and the relationships between them. These features are available when viewing records.
Note: The Java applet downloads the first time you click Show Model.
By default, the graphical model displays all entities within the object’s folder and sub-folders. Objects that are part of a hierarchy or self-referential relationship display visually in blue. Simple data objects that are not part of a hierarchy display in green.
The Show Model page provides the following menu options:

You can navigate through the diagrams using the vertical and horizontal scroll bars, or by dragging the screen with the right mouse button. If you double click the object, OneData routes you to the Manage or View screen, according to the function you were using when you executed the Show Model command.
