> Code Theory Model

Function of this model

This model is similar to the Single-Case Model. This model also focuses on one code, but instead of displaying the code's coded segments it displays subcodes and memos.

Model display in the map

The code icon is put in the center of the map with the subcodes arranged in a circle around it. Subcodes can be arranged on two hierarchical levels, with the first level forming an inner circle around the code, and the second level forming an outer circle. The memos are connected to the codes/subcodes with a line. Since memos can be linked to more than one code, each code may be connected with several lines.

Code Theory Model without subcodes. Code memos and linked memos of subcodes will be displayed
Code Theory Model with integration of subcodes on 1st level: subcodes are displayed in a circle around the code. Memos are displayed in an outer second circle. The code memos and linked memos are imported, too.
Code Theory model with integration of subcodes on two levels: The subcodes are displayed around the main code.

Creating a new model and model options

Select New Code Model > Code Theory Model in the Start tab and drag a code from the "Code System" into the map. A dialog window with model options opens up:

The Code Theory Model options

A preview of the model is shown on the map, taking into account the selected options. Click the Use Model button to use the model as it is currently displayed.

Memo options

Code memos - If this checkbox is selected, the code memos from the "Code System" are displayed in the map.

Memos linked with codes - If this option is selected, all memos linked to a code on the surface will also be included in the map.

Subcode options

Display subcodes up to level X - You can choose whether and up to which level subcodes are displayed (1 = only include the direct subcodes; 2 = also include the subcodes of the subcodes).

Only activated codes - You can use this option to restrict the display of subcodes to the currently activated subcodes.

Tip: You can also access the model directly from the "Code System" by right-clicking on a code and selecting Code Model > Code Theory Model.
