Understand the select relation dialog

An important aspect of Relatics is relating type elements. Therefore, users can create relations between elements in a workspace. A user will often be prompted to use a select relation dialog to make relations between elements. This dialog provides a table with all relevant elements to which a relation can be made.

Understand the select relation dialog

  • A select relation dialog always shows the all elements view of the type element to which a relation can be made.
  • Depending on the type relation, the select relation dialog can have multiple tabs with selectable elements. If the type element in the relation is hierarchical, the dialog will have a tab with a  tree view. If the type element in the relation has externally managed data, the dialog will have a tab with  external elements. If the type relation is a collection relation, there will be tabs for every type element in the collection relation. The tabs are not mutually exclusive.
  • The select relation dialog can have a Show all button in type relations with quality rules or a reverse single cardinality. When this button is turned off, the dialog will hide elements that break a quality rule or, in the case of a relation with a single cardinality, elements that are already related. After turning this button on, all relatable elements will be shown unconditionally.
  • Depending on the cardinality of the type relation, a select relation dialog can have different selection buttons. If the dialog has radio buttons, the cardinality of the type relation is single; if it has  checkboxes instead, the cardinality of the type relation is multi.
  • It is possible to sort elements in a select relation dialog similarly to a table, but it is impossible to apply filters.
