ReSharper 8.0 Web Help

Using the Go to File feature you navigate directly to the file you are interested in. This feature is context-independent, so you can invoke it within a file, in Solution Explorer or Object Browser, etc.

To go to a file in the current solution
  1. On the main menu, choose ReSharper | Navigate | Go to File or press Ctrl+Shift+NCtrl+Shift+T.
  2. The pop-up list appears. Start typing characters in the Enter file or folder name text box. As you type, the list narrows down, suggesting names that match the entered substring.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • To view the list of found items in the Find Results window, click Show in Find Results go_to__show_in_find_results or press + on the numeric keypad.
    • To navigate directly to a target item, select its name in the list and press Enter.

You can narrow down the list of items using CamelHumps. It is case-insensitive, so there is no difference between 'iconfse' and 'IConfSe'.

GoToFile

If you want to navigate to a file in a particular folder, you can type parts of the file path and split them using spaces, slashes or backslashes. Consider the example below:

GoToFile_Backslashes

You can also use wildcards when specifying the name: '*' (asterisk) represents zero or more characters; '+' (plus) represents one or more characters. To specify a line in the searched file, type it after a ':' (colon).

Note

Whenever collecting items to match the specified string takes significant time, ReSharper displays an hourglass icon watch to the right of your search string. Substantial delays are to be expected when performing search before ReSharper loads completely.
