File View

Use File View to manage the contents of a project workspace by adding, moving, and deleting subprojects and reference files. The project workspace can contain several projects, and each project can consist of any number of folders and files. Organize your project by dragging and dropping folders and files within the same project.

You probably recognize and understand the tree structure of File View. File View displays the contents of a project workspace starting with its root structure and expanding to list subprojects and other items. You click the plus sign to expand an item, and you click the minus sign to deflate an item. The following image shows a partially collapsed project called Manual that contains one project.

File Management

When you create a project using the Project Wizard, you must decide on the folder system type: local or virtual. This decision impacts the way File View behaves. Actions taken in File View on local folder systems transfer to the files stored on your hard drive or network drive. For example, deleting a file or folder from a local folder system deletes that file or folder from your system, as well. Therefore, JCreator prompts you for verification before deleting an item. Actions performed in File View on virtual forder systems, do not impact the system structure. Deleting a file or folder from a virtual folder system simply deletes that file or folder from your project. The file or folder remains on the hard drive or network drive.
