dotPeek 2018.2 Help

Assembly Explorer window

Windows | Assembly Explorer

Assembly Explorer allows opening multiple assemblies and keeping a list of open assemblies and folders. You can traverse and explore all open assemblies. Expanding an assembly node lists namespaces within the assembly, which can be further expanded to types and type members, as well as assembly references. You can double-click any type to decompile it or fetch source from a symbol server (depending on your settings).
In addition, the Assembly Explorer contains nodes representing base types and inheritors of the current type.
