  • For State, Box, Function, Annotation, Junction, and Transition objects, the view method does the following:

    1. Opens the chart containing the object if it is not already open.

    2. Highlights the object.

    3. Zooms the object's editor window to the level of full expanse of the object's containing state or chart.

  • For Atomic Subchart and Atomic Box objects, the view method shows the contents of the object.

  • For Truth Table objects, the view method opens the Truth Table Editor for this truth table.

  • For MATLAB® Function objects, the view method opens the editor for this function.
