Call Graph Panel Settings

Applies to AQTime 8.81, last modified on November 27, 2020

The Call Graph panel offers several customizable options. They are divided into two groups: those that depend on the current profiler and those that do not depend on the current profiler.

Note: To check or modify profiler-dependent options, use the Customize Call Graph dialog. The rest of this topic explains profiler-independent options.

You can check or change these options using the Call Graph Options dialog. To call it, do any of the following:

  • Select Options from the context menu of the Call Graph panel.

  • Select Options > Options from AQTime’s main menu and then choose Analysis Results > Call Graph on the left of the ensuing Options dialog.

  • Select Options from the context menu of the Call Graph panel.

  • Right-click Call Graph in Visual Studio's Solution Explorer and select Properties from the context menu.

  • Select Tools > Options from the main menu of Visual Studio and then choose AQTime > Analysis Results > Call Graph on the left of the ensuing Options dialog.

  • Select Options from the context menu of the Call Graph panel.

  • Select AQTime > Options from the main menu of Embarcadero RAD Studio and then choose Analysis Results > Call Graph on the left of the ensuing Options dialog.

Note: If the Call Graph panel does not support the current profiler, the settings are disabled.

The following options are available:

  • Show results as hint - If this option is enabled, profiling results are displayed as a hint. Otherwise, they are displayed in the lower portion of the routine (object) rectangle.

  • Show pointing-hand cursor - Sets whether the mouse cursor will change to a pointing hand over areas (lines and rectangles) that can be clicked on to switch to new details.

  • Number of parent levels - Sets the depth of parent calls (parent object references) that will be displayed for each function (object).

  • Number of child levels - Sets the depth of child calls (child object references) that will be displayed for each function (object).

  • Highlight - When the mouse points to a link between rectangles, this option specifies whether the linked rectangles are highlighted to make it clearer that they are the ones linked.

    • Active - Sets if any highlighting is done.

    • Parent item color - Sets the highlight color for the parent-function (parent-object) rectangle.

    • Child item color - Sets the highlight color for the child-function (child-object) rectangle.

  • Item rectangle background

    • Details part - Sets background color for lower part of function (object) rectangles.

    • Header part - Sets background color for the upper part of function (object) rectangles.
