Outline view

The Outline view displays an outline of a structured file that is currently open in the editor area, and lists structural elements. The contents of the Outline view are editor specific. In the example below, which is for a Java source file, the structural elements are classes, fields, and methods. The contents of the toolbar are also editor specific.
