Exploring Hierarchy of References

Inspect | References Hierarchy

This feature helps you explore hierarchy of references for any assembly 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

  1. Select an assembly in the Assembly Explorer window.
  2. 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.
  3. In a new tab of the Hierarchy window that appears, you can explore the hierarchy or assembly references:
  4. To switch the hierarchy between referenced assemblies and currently loaded assemblies that reference the selected assembly, use the corresponding toolbar buttons ( Referenced Projects /help/img/dotnet/2016.3/ThemedIcon.Hierarchy.Screen.[Gray].png/ Referencing Projects /help/img/dotnet/2016.3/ThemedIcon.Subtypes.Screen.[Gray].png)

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