Assembly Explorer window
dotPeek's main navigation window, 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, resources, and metadata. 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.
Opens an assembly from project file, library file, or a ZIP archive. For more information, see Open and close assemblies.
Allows choosing a folder to be explored recursively and loading all assemblies found in this folder. For more information, see Find assemblies in folders.
Since dotPeek processes the selected folder recursively, make sure not to add a folder that may contain too many assemblies (for example Program Files). It might take long to load all assemblies in dotPeek.
