Explore hierarchy of references

This feature helps you explore hierarchy of references for any assembly and track down all assembly dependencies. Recursive dependencies are detected and marked with a glyph to the right of a reference entry.

View reference hierarchy for an assembly

  1. Select an assembly in the Assembly Explorer window.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • Choose Inspect | References Hierarchy from the menu.

    • Right-click the assembly and choose References Hierarchy in the context menu.

    • Press Ctrl+Alt+R.

  3. In a new tab of the Hierarchy window that appears, you can explore the hierarchy or assembly references:

    dotPeek: assembly references hierarchy
  4. To switch the hierarchy between referenced assemblies and currently loaded assemblies that reference the selected assembly, use the corresponding toolbar buttons (Referenced Projects ThemedIcon.Hierarchy.Screen.(Gray).png/Referencing Projects ThemedIcon.Subtypes.Screen.(Gray).png)

  5. You can further explore each assembly in the hierarchy:

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