Hierarchy tags

Hierarchy tags are small blue tags, e.g. hierarchytag.jpg, that are associated with some places and transitions in hierarchical CPNs. There are three kinds of hierarchy tags:

  • Subpage tags
  • Port-type tags
  • Fusion-set tags

Hierarchical constructs can be deleted or modified by deleting hierarchy tags. Read more about Removing hierarchical constructs.

Subpage tags

Subpage tags are associated with substitution transitions. The text in a subpage tag is the same as the name of the corresponding subpage (and is frequently the same as the name of the corresponding substitution transition).

A subpage tag

Subpage tags are added automatically when the Move to subpage and Set subpage tools are used.

The Show subpage tool can applied to a subpage tag in order to open the corresponding subpage in the same binder.

Port-type tags

Port-type tags are associated with port places on subpages. The text in a port-type tag indicates whether the port place is an input port (In), an output port (Out), or an input/output port (I/O).

Port-type tags

Port-type tags are added to places when the Set port type and Move to subpage tools are used.

Fusion-set tags

Fusion-set tags are associated with Fusion places. The text in a fusion-set tag indicates the name of the fusion set to which the corresponding fusion place belongs.

Fusion-set tag

Fusion-set tags are added to fusion places when the Assign fusion set tool is applied.

Graphical feedback

Moving the cursor over a hierarchy tag will provide various kinds of Graphical feedback.

  • Subpage tag
  • An aqua aura is added to the corresponding
    • substitution transition
    • page tab of the subpage (if the subpage is open in a binder)
    • name of the subpage in the index
    • net name in the index
  • Port-type tag
  • An aqua aura is added to the corresponding
    • port place
    • socket place which is assigned to the port place
    • page tab of the superpage which contains the socket place (if the superpage is open in a binder)
    • name of the superpage in the index
    • net name in the index
  • Fusion-set tag
  • An aqua aura is added to the corresponding fusion place.
  • A pink aura is added to each of the places in the fusion set and to the pages which contain places in the fusion set.

These auras disappear when the cursor is moved away from a hierarchy tag.
