View the GUIDE Object Hierarchy

As you lay out your UI, check the object hierarchy periodically, especially if your UI contains menus, panes, or button groups. Open it from View > Object Browser or by click the Object Browser icon on the GUIDE toolbar.

The following illustration shows a figure object and its child objects. It also shows the child objects of a uipanel.

To determine a component's place in the hierarchy, select it in the Layout Editor. It is automatically selected in the Object Browser. Similarly, if you select an object in the Object Browser, it is automatically selected in the Layout Editor.
