Viewing References Hierarchy
Inspect | References Hierarchy
Similarly to Exploring Type Hierarchy, you can view which references the current assembly has and track down all assembly dependencies. Recursive dependencies are detected and marked with a glyph to the right of a reference entry.
To view reference hierarchy for an assembly
- Select an assembly in the Assembly Explorer.
Do one of the following:
- Choose Inspect | References Hierarchy on the menu.
- Right-click on the assembly and choose References Hierarchy in the context menu.
- Press Ctrl+Alt+R.
- In a new tab of the Hierarchy window that opens, expand assembly nodes to study references hierarchy.
This feature is inspired by and borrowed from JetBrains ReSharper, a developer productivity tool for Microsoft Visual Studio.
