Customizing Classes

Last modified on May 17th, 2018.


From the 'Schema Editor,' you can customize the current set of classes defined in your project's database schema.

Note, that in order to perform each of the customization tasks outlined below, it is necessary to first have "Classes" highlighted in the 'Schema' tab of the left sidebar. This toggles the view to display a list of the currently defined schema-based classes.

Adding a New Class

  1. Within the 'Schema Editor,' ensure "Classes" is highlighted in the left sidebar.
  2. Click the blue 'New Class' button located on the toolbar.

  3. The view will update to display a 'Create New Class' form. Here you can quickly type in a name, description and other attributes of your new class.

  4. When you have finished entering information, click the 'Save' button located on the toolbar to persist your changes to your project’s database schema.

Editing an Existing Class

  1. Within the 'Schema Editor,' ensure "Classes" is highlighted in the left sidebar.
  2. Locate the class you would like to edit and click the 'Edit' button on the right within the class' displayed row.

  3. The view will update to display an 'Edit' form, where you can change attributes of the existing class.

    Note that the 'Schema Editor' only allows users to edit attributes of user-defined classes added to the default schema. All classes already included in the schema by default are locked.

  4. Click the 'Save' button located on the toolbar to persist your changes to your project's database schema.

Hiding a Class

  1. Within the 'Schema Editor,' ensure "Classes" is highlighted in the left sidebar.
  2. Locate the class you would like to hide and click the 'Hide' button on the right within the class' displayed row.

  3. If you'd like to show an already hidden class, click the 'Show' button on the right within the class' displayed row.
