These tree types are controlled by the Class Viewer modes.

To select one of the Class Viewer's modes:

  2. In the Object Pascal Class Explorer toolbar, click the arrow of the Derived to Base combo box. The drop-down list contains the following options: Derived to Base, Base to Derived, Container.
  3. Select one of the options in this drop-down list. These options define the mode in which the Class Viewer pane displays the classes' and interfaces' inheritance structure.
