Adding a New Component to a Container or Parent Component


Adding a component to a container component performs two operations. It first creates a new component in the project database, and then it connects the new component by the chosen container. This means the component is added to a folder in the tree and also a link to the new component is added under the container component to which it was added.


  1. Right click on the component that will contain the new component.

  2. Select "Add New " and the type of component to add.

  3. You will be asked to choose from a number of ratings folders. Select the ratings folder in which to create the ratings record for the component.

  4. Configure the component using the builder, as described in the appropriate component builder section.
