dotPeek 2016.3 Help

Navigate To Function Exits

Navigate | Navigate To | Function Exit(s)
Ctrl+Shift+G | Function Exit(s)

This command provides you an easy way to navigate to exit points of a function. You can find this command if you invoke Navigate to on the name of a function, getter or setter of a property, the name of constructor, return and throw statements.

dotPeek treats return and throw statements as well as the closing bracket for functions with void return type as function exits.

If there is only one exit point, dotPeek navigates directly there. If there are several exit points, each of them is highlighted with blue.

Navigating to function exits

The highlights are also duplicated with markers on the marker bar on the right. Checking these markers may be helpful if not all highlights are visible on the current screen.
To navigate between the highlighted items, choose Navigate | Go to Next/Previous Highlight in the menu or press Ctrl+Alt+PageDown / Ctrl+Alt+PageUp. Alternatively, click the status indicator (that should be displaying /help/img/dotnet/2016.3/ThemedIcon.ErrorStripeFindNext.Screen.[Gray].png) in the right top corner of the code viewer to jump between the highlights.
When you finish examining the highlights, press Esc to remove them.

Note that by default, dotPeek automatically highlights all context exits when you set the caret at one of them.

dotPeek highlights context exits

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