Navigating the intelligent structure

Navigating the
intelligent structure

You can enlarge or shrink the intelligent structure in the
Visual Model
tab to better view the nodes. You can drag the model across the screen to focus on a specific part of the model.
A grouping of data fields is displayed as a node with child nodes. For example, the input data might contain the text
Tatanya Morales
, a first and last name. The intelligent structure represents the name with a
parent node, a
child node, and a
child node. The following image shows the parent and child nodes:
A model contains a tree-like structure. A node can contain child nodes.
You can collapse parent nodes, for example, if an
intelligent structure
is large, and contains parent nodes with many child nodes. When you collapse nodes, all child nodes remain in the intelligent structure but are not displayed. To collapse a node, click the node and select
. The following image shows a model with a collapsed node:
The image shows an intelligent structure model that contains a collapsed element1 parent node symbolized by a plus sign.
You might find it difficult to trace the input for the intelligent structure if the input has very lengthy rows of data. You can select to view the input in word wrap format. If you do not word wrap lengthy input rows, only part of each row is displayed. Wrapping the text does not affect the intelligent structure or the input format. To wrap text, select
Word wrap
. The following image shows data in word wrap mode:
The image shows data rows in word wrap mode that display all the input data.
You can locate specific nodes in large or complex intelligent structures. Click
to open the
pane and enter the node name string you want to locate. A list of nodes whose name contains the string is displayed and those nodes are highlighted in the model. The list shows the short path with the last 2 nodes of the path. To show the full path to the nodes clear
Display results short path
. The following image shows the last two nodes of the path highlighted:
The visual model shows the last two nodes of the path highlighted.
Beside tracing the node input data, you might want to find out other information about a node. You can view the accuracy of the algorithm results, possible node types related to the node, and sample data in the input file that corresponds to the node. To view information about a node, right-click the node and select
Open Data
. The following image shows data for a node named
The node information dialog box shows the accuracy of the algorithm results and the data sample it is based on.
