Go to Symbol

Navigate | Go to Symbol

The Go To Symbol allows searching by name for any code symbol within all assemblies currently included in the Assembly Explorer and all assemblies referenced from those assemblies.

To navigate to a symbol

  1. On the main menu, choose Navigate | Go to Symbol , or press Ctrl+Shift+Alt+N.
  2. In the Enter symbol name pop-up that appears, start typing characters in the text field. As you type, the lookup 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 specific item, click on it in the lookup list or select it and press Enter.

Case-insensitive CamelHumps is supported here: for example, you can simply type 'ch' instead of 'ColorHelper'. If you want to navigate to a symbol in a particular type, you can specify parts of the type's fully qualified name and member name and split them with spaces or dots.

You can also use wildcards when specifying the name: '*' (asterisk) represents zero or more characters; '+' (plus), ':' (semicolon), '.' (dot), and '\' (backslash) separate parts of the type's fully qualified name.

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