Navigating Between Actions and Views

This feature is only supported in the Ultimate edition.

IntelliJ IDEA suggests convenient means of navigation within Grails applications. The following cases are possible:

To navigate between an action and the corresponding view

  • In a controller, with the caret within an action: Click the icon grailsGotoViewFromActionIconin the left gutter:
    grailsGotoViewFromAction

    The corresponding <name>.gsp file opens in the editor.
  • In a view file <name>.gsp: click the Controller button on the scaffolding toolbar:
    grailsGotoActionFromView
    The corresponding controller opens in the editor, with the caret resting before the action name.

To navigate from Grails render or redirect methods, do one of the following

  • With the caret at the template name, press Ctrl+B
  • Keeping Ctrl pressed, click the template name:
    grailsGotoViewFromRender
