26.11.6 Layers View

Composite and enumerated types in PSS are extensible, hence the definition of some entity might end up being spread over multiple regions in one or more files.

The Layers View provides a compact presentation of all the extensions (layers) of a specific entity. The layers are in the compilation order.

Place the cursor on the entity name and press Shift+F3 or right click and chose Show > Layers from the editor context menu. The Layers View is automatically raised at any invocation. You can also open it from Window > Show View > Other... > DVT > Layers.

Double click on a layer and jump to the corresponding source location.

Right click on a layer to Show Type Hierarchy, Show Usages, etc.

You can use CamelCase or Simple Regex in the quick search bar to query the layers. Quick Layers View
