Viewing Metadata Tokens
.NET assemblies store symbol references as metadata tokens. If necessary, dotPeek can display the tokens for each decompiled symbol, it provides the Show token values option that applies globally to all opened decompiled documents in the Code Viewer and to types and members in the Assembly Explorer Window. By default, this option is turned off.
When this option is enabled, the metadata token values are shown next to types and members in the Assembly Explorer and as a comments in the Code Viewer:
To show or hide metadata token values
- Click Turn Metadata Token Values On/Off on the toolbar.
- Tick the Show token values check-box on the Decompiler page of dotPeek options.
