dotPeek 2016.1 Help

Go to Usages of Symbol

Navigate | Usages of Symbol

This command allows you quickly navigate to a specific usage of a symbol from its declaration or any other usage. You can invoke this command from the code viewer, from the File Structure Window and other tool windows. The opposite navigation is available with the Go to Declaration command.

The list of usages that you get with this command is the same as that of Find Usages. But this command is more convenient if you are looking for a specific usage and want to get to this usage without opening the Find Results Window.

To navigate to a usage of a symbol

  1. Place the caret on a symbol in the code viewer or select the symbol in a tool window.
  2. Press Ctrl+Alt+F7 or choose in the main menu .
  3. If the symbol has only one usage, dotPeek will navigate to it directly.
  4. Found usages and their contexts appear in a pop-up. Do one of the following:
    • Click on the desired item to open it in the editor.
    • Select the desired item by pressing UpArrow and DownArrow and the press Enter to open it in the editor.
    • Start typing to filter results. Note that you can use CamelHumps here. If necessary, press Esc once to clear the filtering.
    • To view and analyze the list of matched items in the Find Results Window, click Show in Find Results go_to__show_in_find_results or press + on the numeric keypad.
    • To show the matched items on the type dependency diagram, press Alt+Num+ or click Show on Diagram ThemedIcon.TypeLayoutAlt.Screen.[Gray] .

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