The Add Area dialog is used to create either profiling, class-level or stack areas. Depending on the currently selected profiler, the dialog may have one of the following captions: Add Profiling Area, Add Class-Level Area or Add Stack Area. The caption indicates the type of the created area. For more information on the available area types, see About Areas.

Calling the Dialog

The Add Area dialog is called when you do one of the following:

  • Select Add Area from the context menu of the Setup panel.
  • Press Add Area on the Setup toolbar.
  • Select Add Selected to Setup > Add to New Area from the context menu of the Report panel.
  • Select Project > Add Area from AQTime's main menu.
Note: Depending on the selected profiler, the mentioned context menu and toolbar items may have slightly different captions indicating the type of the created area. For instance, if you create a profiling area, the corresponding menu and toolbar items are called Add Profiling Area, Add Selected to Setup > Add to New Profiling Area and so on.
