Import Model Elements

Use the Import Model Elements dialog box to bring elements of an existing model into the model you currently have open. Developers can work separately on different sections of a model, import sections into the destination model, and reuse model elements as often as needed.

If you are importing a model that contains event handlers, they are imported along with their parent element, however, you must manually copy the Java code from the model source Scripts sub-directory to the corresponding sub-directory in the destination model.

To help you find an entity, table or variable you can use the alphabetical sort option or filter on a specific element using a regular expression. For example, searching on AcctP results in AcctProfile being returned, but if you search on Acct[PT], both AcctProfile and AcctTransactions are returned. See How to Use Regular Expressions in Host Integrator for information on regular expressions.

It is possible that a filter you set up could exclude selected elements. If this occurs you will see a warning prompting you to either cancel or continue with the import. If you continue selected elements that have been filtered will no longer be visible.

Options that determine how to work with the Import Model Elements dialog box are set on Settings menu > Preferences > Import.

Import Model

Browse to the model you want to use as a source for the imported model elements. The source model displays in a tree view, containing the elements you want to import. The first time the Design Tool is opened, the models directory is not visible.
