Thread: Object Model Tool?

    Object Model Tool?


    Can anyone recommend a freeware tool that can display a complete object model
    in a visual format? IOW, if I gave it the ADO 2.5 library, it would display
    a hierarchical tree showing every single object, method, property and event
    and how they're all related.

    Try Visual Modeler (included with Visual Studio Enterprise)

    Isn't this what the object explorer does??

    Sort of, but not really. I'm looking for a tool that can display the complete
    object in a tree view format. Unless you know about some feature I'm not
    aware of, Object Explorer doesn't do this.

    Thanks, Rahul. I don't have it installed, but that's easily fixed.

    If you're looking for something that will display the hierarchy in TreeView
    format then Visual Modeler won't do it either. Visual Modeler will produce a
    class diagram for you, not a "Tree View" of the hierarchy.

    Why do you want to this anyway? Why not produce a Class diagram using Visual
    Modeler. A class diagram would probably give better idea if the relationship
    between objects.

    If you absolutely want a tree style view, you can probably write a tool for
    yourself using VB and the TypeLib Information library (TLBINF32.DLL).

    You can use the Class Builder Add In, taking care of setting the 'Top Class'
    property only for the classes that won't be used in any other class module.
    This will build the hierarchy tree automatically.
