ReSharper 2017.3 Help

Exploring PDB Contents

ReSharper helps you explore assembly PDB contents by generating a readable XML file, which contains:

  • source file names,
  • mapping between IL offsets and source lines,
  • names of local variables,
  • entry point method if present,
  • import scopes,
  • a type of PDB file (Windows/Portable/Embedded),
  • PDB signature,
  • source server info: SourceLink/SrcSrv.

To study PDB contents associated with an assembly, right-click on it in the Assembly Explorer window and choose Show PDB content. ReSharper will generate an XML file and open it in the editor.
