Using SHriMP Windows


SHriMP (Simple Hierarchical Multi-Perspective) windows show the subsystem hierarchy through the nesting of boxes that represent nodes.

You progressively reveal what a subsystem contains by opening its box, showing its children inside. Several boxes can be opened to show global, contextual information while exploring the details in a particular subsystem. The boxes can be moved around and individually enlarged or reduced. This section describes the specific operations supported in a SHriMP window.
