Finding Usages of a Symbol

Navigate | Find Usages

To find usages of a symbol

  1. Select the symbol that you want to search for in the Assembly Explorer or place the caret at the symbol in the Code Viewer.
  2. On the main menu, choose Navigate | Find Usages . Alternatively, press Alt+F7, or choose Find Usages in the context menu over the target symbol.

When you try to search for usages of an overriding member of a derived class (or implementation of an interface method), you are prompted to specify whether you want to add usages of the corresponding member from the base class/interface to the list of search results. Choose No to search for usages of the overriding member only. Choose Yes to search for usages of both the overridden and base members.

If a single usage is found, dotPeek will navigate you to the usage directly in the Code Viewer. Two or more search results will be shown in the Find Results window.

This feature is inspired by and borrowed from JetBrains ReSharper, a developer productivity tool for Microsoft Visual Studio.
