Search & Navigation

ReSharper | Options | Environment | Search & Navigation

This page of ReSharper options allows you to adjust ReSharper's features related to Navigation and Search.

ItemDescription
Go to Usage: if there is only one result, navigate without displaying the list If this check box is selected and a single usage is found by the Go to Usage feature, the pointer is transferred to the usage right away.
Go to Base/Inheritor: if there is only one result, navigate without displaying the list If this check box is selected and a single occurrence is found by either Go to Base Symbols or Go to Derived Symbols, the pointer is transferred to the occurrence right away.
Go to Declaration on <Control+Left Click> in editor If this check box is selected, you can navigate to declaration of a symbol by Ctrl+clicking any of its usages in the editor.
Go to Declaration with Ctrl+click
The main menu command and the Ctrl+B shortcut stay available regardless of this setting.
Expand search results tree by default If this check box is selected, whenever a ReSharper search feature (e.g. Finding Usages or Structural Search and Replace) derives results that can be presented as a tree structure, all branches of that tree are expanded in the Find Results window.
Enable 'Go To Everything' If this check box is enabled the Go to Everything/Type command searches for types, symbols, and files; if it is disabled, it only searches for types.
Merge occurrences on a single line If this check box is enabled, several search matches on the same line are displayed as a single result in the search results list.
Open preview tab for selected item in Find Results window If this check box is selected, the files are opened in the Preview tab when you double-click the results in the Find Results window.
Find generic type usages behavior This selector allows you to choose how the Find Usages feature searches for generic type usages.

When searching for usages of generic types, e.g. IFoo<string>, you may actually want to find either all usages of IFoo<> or usages of the exact generic substitution IFoo<string> only.
