Navigate To is a single shortcut for all your navigation needs. It provides a drop-down list that shows all contextually available navigation destinations wherever your caret is in the Code Viewer, in the Assembly Explorer, in the File Structure, or another dotPeek tool window.
- Place the caret on a symbol in the Code Viewer or select the symbol in another window, or just set the caret anywhere in the Code Viewer.
- Choose Navigate | Navigate To on the main menu, or press Ctrl+Shift+GAlt+~. The Navigate To drop-down list will appear. Depending on the caret position or selection, the drop-down list will include all relevant navigation options.
- Select an option from the list and click on it or press Enter.
- If the selected option has a single destination, dotPeek will bring you there immediately, if there are several destination, another drop-down list will open providing you with the further choice. You can study one of the corresponding topics to learn more about the selected navigation option.
Where applicable, the Navigate To list covers general navigation and search features, specifically:
- Go to Declaration
- Go to Implementation
- Go to Usages of Symbol
- Go to Base Symbols
- Go to Derived Symbols
- Go to Type of Symbol
In addition, Navigate To extends the developer's toolset with a bunch of contextual navigation features that are not directly available from the dotPeek | Navigate menu:
- Navigate to Control Flow Target
- Navigate to Extension Methods
- Navigate to Overriding Members
- Navigate to Implementing Members
- Navigate to Member Overloads
- Navigate to Function Exits
- Navigate to Parameter Declaration
- Navigate to Decompiled Sources
- Navigate to Metadata View
- Navigate to Sources from Symbol Files
Whenever you execute a Navigate To action that highlights a set of symbols that are not entirely visible on the current screen, you can navigate to the highlights using the marker bar next to the right margin. When you've finished examining the highlights, press Esc to remove them.
This feature is inspired by and borrowed from JetBrains ReSharper, a developer productivity tool for Microsoft Visual Studio.
