Navigating Between Function Calls
To navigate to the next or previous function call
To navigate to the next non-recursive function call
If there are several calls of the current function, then the navigation bar appears:
So you can navigate between function calls using toolbar buttons:
- Click to navigate to the next function call.
- Click to navigate to the previous function call.
- Click to navigate to the next non-recursive call.
To navigate to the next or previous own code call

dotTrace lets you skip call sequences which take insignificant amount of time. The rest of the nodes are much more likely to be worth your attention, so they are marked as "important" and highlighted with the icon. It means that the function doesn't just call other functions but does some work on its own.
As it is easy to get lost during call stack investigation, dotTrace provides an opportunity to return to the root of the current call stack and navigate between siblings. So it helps you keep in mind the structure of the call stack and return to the beginning at any time with one action.
