Type Dependency Diagram

dotPeek 1.3 allows you to visually inspect dependencies between types in your solutions. In the type dependency diagram, you can add any number of types from different projects or compiled assemblies and visualize different kinds of dependencies between them.

Visual Studio debugger support

dotPeek learns to perform as a symbol server and supply Visual Studio debugger with the information required to debug assembly code.

Visual Studio debugger support

dotPeek listens for requests from Visual Studio debugger, generates PDB files and source files for the requested assemblies on demand, and returns them back to the debugger. dotPeek provides several options to choose which assemblies you want it to generate symbol files for. Please refer to this guide for more details on setting up dotPeek as a symbol server.


Process Explorer window

The Process Explorer window provides you with the list of all currently running processes and allows exploring their modules and decompiling those of them that are .NET assemblies. Once you locate a process to decompile, you can add it to Assembly Explorer for further investigation.

Following the footsteps of ReSharper 9, dotPeek 1.3 includes Go To Action option to quickly find and apply any of actions available and Navigate To Exposing APIs, a navigation command that enables you to navigate from a type to all places in your solution where you can get an instance of this type.

Go To Action in dotPeek 1.3

The new Go To String command allows searching for string literal defined in methods within all assemblies currently included in the Assembly Explorer.

Quick search in Assembly Explorer

dotPeek allows quick search and node filtering in various trees, most notably Assembly Explorer. Searching and filtering using lowerCamelHumps are supported as well.

Quick search in Assembly Explorer

dotPeek 1.3 also adds an ability to search for a specific setting in the Options window.


BAML decompilation

If you're faced with a compiled WPF app, you can now easily look at its XAML UI definitions. The generated XAML code is enabled with all the navigation and search features that you would expect if you're a ReSharper user.
