Ctrl+Alt+,
ReSharper_ShowInspectionWindow

This tool window displays the results of code analysis and exploration. Different analysis and exploration tools display their results on separate tabs.

Code inspection results

These results include code issues found in specific scope — for example, issues found when you run code inspection for a project or solution, look for similar code issues, or open issue reports from a file.

All code issues displayed in this window have icons that indicate their severity level:

  • ThemedIcon Error Screen Gray - Error
  • ThemedIcon Warning Screen Gray - Warning
  • ThemedIcon SeveritySuggestion Screen Gray - Suggestion
  • ThemedIcon SolutionAnalysisHint Screen Gray - Hint

Call tracking results

When you explore incoming or outgoing call chains, the results are displayed in a tree view, for example:

Outgoing calls in the Inspection Results window

Value tracking results

When you explore value origins and destinations, the results are also displayed in a tree view, for example:

Window tabs

When inspection results open in the window, they are displayed in new tabs, which show up on the left. The previously open tabs move to the right if the width of the window allows, otherwise they unload themselves saving memory - but you can always restore them by clicking the arrow that appears to the right of the tabs and clicking the required tab:

Tool window tabs

To prevent a tab from unloading, click the pin icon ThemedIcon Pin Screen Gray next to the tab title.
