Code Presentation Options

Depending on the settings, on the availability of PDB information, and on the applied navigation command , ReSharper can present compiled code in three different ways:

  • Decompiled code - this view displays decompiled C# code corresponding to the type that you open or navigate to. This view is used by default if no debug information is available for the type or if you deliberately navigated to this view using the Navigate to Decompiled Sources command.
  • Code from symbol files - this view displays original code from symbol files in C# or VB.NET. To enable this view, the following conditions should be met:
    • Use debug information for navigation option in the Tools | External Sources page of ReSharper options is enabled and debug information (PDB files) is available for the target assembly locally.
    • Allow downloading from remote locations option in the Tools | External Sources page of ReSharper options is enabled and debug information is available on a symbol server.

To view the summary and the presentation mode of an opened document, right-click on its tab header and choose External Source Information in the context menu. In the dialog box that appears, you can learn name and location of the assembly where the document belongs as well as the external source provider - metadata viewer, decompiler or symbol server.
