ReSharper 2016.3 Help

Navigation by Name

ReSharper can bring you to any code item or file or even any matching text in a few keystrokes. The scope of the navigation includes symbols and files in your entire solution as well as all assemblies referenced in the projects of your solution.

To navigate by name, invoke any of the commands mentioned in this section and start typing the name of the target item, its CamelHumps abbreviation, and/or wildcards. The list of matched items will narrow down as you type and the most probable candidates are shown closer to the top of the list.

ReSharper can optionally remember the last input that you used to find something with Go to Everything/Type, Go To File, and Go to Text actions. To enable this behavior, select Remember last search on the Environment | Search and Navigation page of ReSharper options. When this option is selected, ReSharper will also use your selection in the editor as the search string. For example, you can select a file name in a string and then press Ctrl+Shift+N to search for files in your solution that match this name.

As soon as the target item appears in the list, you can choose it to open it in the editor, or alternatively, you can click Show in Find Results /help/img/dotnet/2016.3/ThemedIcon.SearchResults.Screen.[Gray].png in the pop-up or press + on the numeric keypad to open all items in the list in the Find Results window and use its features for further navigation (for more information, see analyzing search results ).

The commands that navigate by name are described in the following topics:
