IntelliJ IDEA 2017.2 Help

Building Method Hierarchy

A method hierarchy makes it possible to examine a tree-view of the classes where a given method is:

  • defined (/help/img/idea/2017.2/new.png).
  • not defined, but defined in the superclass (/help/img/idea/2017.2/minusSign.png).
  • to be defined, because the class is not abstract (/help/img/idea/2017.2/exclamationMark.png).

To build a method hierarchy

  1. Select the desired method in the Project tool window, or place the caret at the method declaration in the editor.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • On the main menu, choose Navigate | Method Hierarchy.
    • Press Ctrl+Shift+H.
