Tools | Options | Decompiler

In this page of dotPeek options, you can define the way dotPeek displays and navigates code from the explored assemblies. For more information, see Navigating to Compiled Code.

Item Description
Use debug information for navigation

Select this check box to use debug information (PDB files) to find appropriate source files and use them to display and navigate the code.
If this check box is selected and the source files are available via the debug information, dotPeek displays and navigates to the original source code.
If this check box is cleared, dotPeek decompiles the code.

Tip

You can always force to display either the decompiled or source code (if it is available via PDB files or from symbol servers). To do so, right-click an item in the Assembly Explorer and choose Decompiled Sources or Sources from Symbol Files.

Allow downloading from remote locations Select this check box to enable downloading sources from Symbol Servers or other remote locations.
Show XML documentation comments Select this check box to display XML comments in the decompiled code. The comments are only available if the XML documentation file option was enabled to build the assembly. The XML documentation is normally stored in the [AssemblyName].xml file next to the assembly file.
Show compiler-generated code Select this check box to see compiler-generated code in the decompiled files. This option is an alternative to using the Show compiler-generated code button on the toolbar. For more information, see Viewing Compiler-Generated Code.
