You can create selection rules based on a combination of an interface definition and property definition or based on navigating a relationship definition or property on a relationship definition.

For example, a Modules selection rule is based on a combination of an interface definition and property definition. Module is a property on a component. The Modules selection rule would use the ISPC_ComponentItem interface definition and SPC_ComponentItem_Module property definition to display groups of components in a module.

For example, a Bolt-up activities selection rule uses a relationship definition to display components because bolt-ups are activities related to a component.

For example, an Assembly property selection rule could use the SPC_ComponentItem_Module property with the SPC_TreeNode_TreeNode relationship definition to display assemblies in the model or drawing that share the same value for the module. If an object in the model is part of an assembly and the Module property value is 'B', then the selection rule would select all assemblies that have module property of 'B'.
