Use the Exceptions tab in the Settings Menu to help Visual Expert better understand your code. An exception processes a given function or variable and creates a supplementary relationship between two components of the application. Find additional references, improve the results of the macro “open hierarchy” and generate more hyperlinks in the source code view.

Go to Add, and select “Open Window Exception”. This exception extends the results of the macro “open hierarchy” by tracking more calls between Windows, Menus and Application Objects.

Define either a window opening function or a variable containing the name of the opened window, by declaring the type of item it is, and selecting the specific item. You can also select the function’s parameter containing the opened object using the dropdown list.

Once the exception has been set, close the Settings window. A pop-up requesting you to re-analyse your code will appear. Select yes so that your project will take into account the new exceptions declared.

How do I add and see a description of my project in Visual Expert?
Posted by Liz Robertson on 14 January 2016 11:37 AM

The project name may not be enough information to clearly define your Visual Expert projects for others. When creating your project, you can add a description while completing the New Project wizard. This description can then be seen by placing your mouse over the project in the Open Project window. You can also add or change a description by selecting a project and pressing “Edit”.

How do I make more space available for Visual Expert projects on my machine?
Posted by Liz Robertson on 14 January 2016 11:34 AM

Depending on the size and complexity of your code, Visual Expert may require 10x the size of your code in space available.

There are a number of ways to create more space for new projects:

  1. Select where your temporary files are stored. Visual Expert creates temporary files when it runs the analysis. You can choose a drive with available space by going to Settings, General and choosing which folder stores the generated files in the “Temporary Files” Section.

  2. Delete old analyses of an existing project. In the Settings Menu > Project Settings > History Tab, you can select and remove previous analyses. For examples, ones that have been aborted in the past.

  3. Delete old projects. Go to File - Open Project and select a project that you no longer need available. Then select “Remove”.

How do I control access to my Visual Expert projects?
Posted by Liz Robertson on 14 January 2016 11:29 AM

If you have concurrent users connected to Visual Expert, you can manage who can open, edit, analyze, and export a project. You can also manage who has the ability to control the above.

Go to Settings - Access Control to get a list of users connected to your Visual Expert Master Database (Project Repository).

The user who creates the project, is the one who defines who has what access rights. For example, the team leader creates a project in the shared Master Database; certain team members can open the project, but cannot export in HTML or Excel a part of the Main View, or create documentation because they do not have the “Can Export” permissions.
