Navigating to Compiled Code
As a tool for working with compiled code, dotPeek helps you search and navigate through compiled code. Code presentation in the Assembly Explorer depends on on the settings, on the availability of PDB information, and on the applied navigation command .
There are two types of navigation commands that target symbols in compiled code:
- Commands that explicitly specify how to represent compiled code: Locating Symbols in Assembly Explorer, Navigate to Decompiled Sources, Navigate to Metadata View, and Navigate to Sources from Symbol Files.
- Commands that implicitly lead to compiled code. For example, Go to Declaration, Go to Type of Symbol, Go to Base Symbols, etc.
For the second type of commands, you can specify how dotPeek will represent external sources. Use controls in the Navigation section on the Decompiler page of dotPeek options.
