dotPeek 2017.1 Help

Highlighting Usages in File

Navigate | Highlight Usages in File

If you are looking for usages of a symbol in the current document, it could be more convenient to highlight all usages and jump between them, rather than to analyze the usages in the Find Results window. Note that read and write access usages are highlighted in different colors.

You can invoke this command on different symbols to highlight usages of several different symbols simultaneously. The highlighting is preserved until you press Esc.

To highlight usages of a symbol in the current document

  1. Position the caret at a symbol declaration or usage in the code viewer.
  2. In the main menu, choose Navigate | Highlight Usages in File or press Ctrl+Shift+F7.
  3. dotPeek highlights all read usages with blue and all write usages with red.
  4. The highlights are also duplicated with blue and red 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/2017.1/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.

Highlighting usages of a symbol in the current document

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