Multiple view composition
BVQ version 5.0 introduces major changes to the user interface to simplify the use of connected information in one window and move to a use case driven perspective.
BVQ docking capabilities, available since version 3.4, made it easy to assemble multiple topology- and performance-views into one window composition. Unfortunately these individual views didn't share any information, weren't recallable for repetitive use and the view-controls were wasting valuable space.
BVQ now extended the docking capabilities to:
- Save and restore layout composition as favorite
- Reload analytic performance views based on the current selection of the active view in a window
- Add information to a window or view to describe and explain their use
- Concentrate a views to the information. User input elements are moved to separate control panels.
Differences Window vs. View
With the new introduced concept of windows it is important to distinguish between a view and a window as well as the different usability concepts.
Use case driven views
The new window concept enables the move to a more use case or problem centric view. Windows are able to show a collection of relevant charts, metrics, tables and treemaps important to analyze problems at a glance.
Fully recallable window
Now you are able to store a fully customized window including multiple views with its own configurations and arrangements. This includes all table configurations in tree and sort & filter mode like filter, visible columns, column order, sorting, etc.
Therefor a "Window Favorite" has been introduced. It shows up similar to a folder in the favorite chooser from where you can open it completely as a window, or open one of its subordinated views.
