SubTitleIcon6 Select part

  • Activate search function window
    Search function window can be turn on/off by changing [SearchFunction on/off] checkbox.
  • Search part name
    When part of part name is typed, there are matched part name list by prefix search in the pull-down list. When select one part name from pull-down list, it can be selected.
  • Change the order of list
    List order can be changed by clicking the right side of column title. If more than one column is set, former column has higher priority. In addition, clicking triangle mark, you can change ascending sort, descending sort.
  • Change order of column title
    Order of column title can be changed by dragging column title.
  • - View basic information of selected part
    Double clicking the part name, information window of clicked part will be opened. Clicking each button at upper side of tool, you can view electrical / thermal characteristics or download technical data. Clicking information window that is already opened, related part name is selected and you can view same information additionally clicking buttons at upper side.
  • Toggle on/off of tree view
    Part name list can be toggled to tree view (part series view) / normal view changing [Part series view] checkbox.
