You can use this pane to:

  • Navigate through the findings.

  • Organize your review using filters in the toolstrip or in the context menu. For more information, see Filter and Sort Results in Polyspace Access Web Interface.

  • Right-click a finding to get the URL of the finding. When you open this URL in a web browser you see the Results List pane filtered to that one finding.

  • Select multiple findings to perform mass edits. To select multiple findings, click each finding while holding the Ctrl key. To select all findings currently showing in the results list, right-click a finding and click Select All from the context menu.

    For example you can select multiple findings and assign them to the same bug tracking tool ticket. See Create Bug Tracking Tool Tickets from the Polyspace Access Web Interface.

  • Copy review information for a result which you can then paste as a Polyspace annotation in your code. To copy the review information, right-click a result in the results list, select Add Pre-Justification to Clipboard > Copy annotation for finding findingName. Here, findingName is the name of the finding, for example Typedef mismatch or AUTOSAR C++14 A5-2-6.

    For more on adding annotations to your code, see Annotate Code and Hide Known or Acceptable Results (Polyspace Bug Finder).

If the Results List exceeds 10000 findings, Polyspace Access truncates the list and displays this icon in the filters bar. To show all findings, see the contextual help of the icon.

To see all findings, hover on the exclamation mark icon and click on the link Show all Results List findings.

The 10000 findings limit is preset and cannot be changed.
