Vivado - The Source hierarchy window shows the original RTL source under the testbench instead of the simulation netlist

Description

The Source hierarchy window shows the original RTL source under the testbench for Simulation Sources. 

There is no distinction between Behavioral simulation and the Post-Synthesis or Post-Implementation simulations.

Why does Vivado display the RTL  instead of the actual Post-Synthesis or Post-Implementation netlist under the testbench?

Is there a way to view these file?

Solution

As Vivado does not show a separate hierarchy for each type of simulation available, it was decided to show the Behavioral hierarchy under the Simulation Sources.

You can create a manual Simulation Source set and add the netlist or you can right click on the UUT in the Scope window and select Go To Source Code.
