dotPeek 2024.1 Help

Go To Metadata Token

This command finds and displays a decompiled symbol by its metadata token provided that the corresponding assembly is loaded.

This can be helpful if you know the token of a specific symbol (for example, from another decompiler), then you can quickly find this symbol in dotPeek.

You can also search by tokens using Search Everywhere and use tokens to filter entries in the Assembly Explorer window

Navigate to a metadata token

  1. From the main menu, choose Navigate | Go to Metadata Token.

  2. In the Enter metadata token popup that appears, enter a hexadecimal token either with the 0x prefix or without it. Symbols with matching tokens from all loaded assemblies will be shown in the list.

  3. To narrow down search results, start typing a name of the module after a whitespace.

  4. Do one of the following:

    • Click the desired item to open it in the editor.

    • Select the desired item by pressing Up and Down and then press Enter to open it in the editor.

    • To view and analyze the list of matched items in the Find Results window, click Show in Find Results ThemedIcon.SearchResults.Screen.(Gray).png, press Shift+Enter or + on the numeric keypad .
