Working with window controls' hierarchy
While working with windows' components, windows' components list and
hierarchy tree are located on Hide Master work area.
Attention: because of the OS Windows internal architecture
it is impossible to make visible a window's component which is located lower
in a hierarchy than another invisible component. This is why it is impossible
to make visible a button located on an invisible window.
Hierarchy tree shows dependencies between windows and windows'
components in the operating system. Hierarchy tree management is similar
to one with directories and files tree. After selection of a certain tree
element, all its window's components are shown in a list. If one of the tree
subelements contains some other components (similar to the directory on a disk)
it will be shown in green. If it does not contain any other components (similar
to file on a disk) it is shown as usual.
Desktop, owner of all the windows. Similar to the root directory (for example,C:\).
Closed tree element, which contains window's components and subelements. Similar
to the closed directory on disk, which contains other files and directories.
Open tree element, which contains window's components and subelements. Similar
to the open directory on disk, which contains other files and directories.
Tree element, which contains only window's components and no other subelements.
Similar to the directory which contains only files and no directories.
List of controls
This list holds window's components which are owned by the selected hierarchy
tree element. You can sort this list by any column, you just need to click the
header of the desired column (gray triangle shows the sorting direction).
Double-clicking on any list element will toggle its visibility. If you change state
of any window with Hide Master its name will be written in a list in red.
Following information is appearing in the list:
This column contains an information about window's class name.
This column contains text associated with a hidden window (usually its a window's
title, button's label, etc...).
This column contains an information about window's current visibility state.
Window's system handle is shown in this column.
This column contains an information on system ID for process which owns the window.
