Component Suppression State in Configurations

The column header in a design table to control the suppression state of a component uses this syntax:


The column header is not case sensitive.

In the table body cells, type the value for the desired suppression state: Suppressed (or S), or Resolved (or R). You cannot set a component to the lightweight state. If a cell is left blank, the default suppression state is Resolved.

If the component uses a derived configuration, and the table body cell is left blank, the value of the component suppression state used is linked to its parent.

Example of a design table that controls the suppression state of a component:

You can also right-click a component and select Configure component to configure the suppression state of the component.
