Include (Choice and Dialog)
Include is a dialog choice used either to determine which elements are
displayed within a window or to identify the subset of elements to be
displayed, added, or removed from a view.
When to Use
RecommendedProvide an Include choice in the View menu when it is useful to view
subsets of elements contained within the view.
RequiredWhen Include is chosen, display an Include dialog window that allows the
user to specify a subset of elements to be displayed within the view.
RequiredWhen an element is added to the data on which a view filtered by an
include action is displayed, and the element matches the criteria for the
view, display the element in the view.
RecommendedWhen the user specifies, in the Include dialog, the properties of a subset
of the elements that can be viewed, allow the user to choose whether to:
Replace the elements in the current view (for example, show the specified
subset of all the elements instead)
Restrict the current view (for example, show the specified subset of the
currently viewed elements)
Add elements to the view (for example, add the specified subset of all the
elements to the view)
Remove elements from the view (for example, remove the specified subset of
the currently viewed elements from the view)
RecommendedIn the window in which the results of the Include operation are displayed,
provide a status area to list the criteria used to create the subset, as well
as the number of elements displayed and the total number of elements from
which they were chosen.
RecommendedProvide a choice within the Include dialog to allow the result of the
Include operation to be shown in a separate window instead of in the current
