  • Window
    toolbar: Provides the show/hide toggle capability for configurable GUI elements. From left to right, these icons represent the
    , and
    window toolbar
    • Hide the
      tab, which contains the
      Designer Mode
      Analysis Mode
      , and
      Hierarchical View
      tabs to increase available screen space for large graphs.
    • Hide the
      tab, which shows information such as node properties or output of analytics algorithms, to get more screen space for visualizing large graphs.
    • By default, the
      tab is hidden if the graph does not have associated execution trace data. When the trace data is available, the
      tab is displayed.
  • Analytics
    toolbar: Provides a subset of plugins from the
    menu. A plugin can be hidden in the toolbar, but it is always registered in the
    analytics toolbar
    The analytics supported for Threading Building Blocks (TBB) flow graphs are, from left to right in the toolbar,
    Compute Critical Path
    Graph Rule-Check
    , and
    Compute Modeling Projection
    . Use these algorithms to design new and tune existing graphs.
  • Layout
    toolbar: Provides a subset of the layouts from the
    layout toolbar
  • Zoom
    toolbar: Allows you to zoom in or out the canvas area that displays the graph. The reset-zoom button resets the zoom factor, so the entire graph is visible in the canvas area.
