dotPeek 2021.1 Help

File Structure window

Windows | File Structure

With dotPeek, you can navigate the structure of the current document using the File Structure window, which greatly simplifies navigation in large files. The window is synchronized with the code viewer: as you switch to another code viewer tab, the window displays the structure of the corresponding file. To navigate through the file easily, preprocessor directives are hidden by default.

Right from the File Structure window, you can access even more actions. To check the available commands, you can right-click any symbol.
