ReSharper | Navigate | Go to File Member

You can use this command to quickly navigate to a particular method or field in the current file, It works same as Go to Type and you can apply it in C#, VB.NET, XAML, XML files, build scripts, and ASP.NET markup files.

To navigate to a file member
  1. In the code editor, open a file where you want to perform the search.
  2. On the main menu, choose ReSharper | Navigate | Go to File Member , or press Ctrl+F12.
  3. In the Enter member name pop-up that appears, start typing characters in the text field. As you type, the lookup list narrows down, suggesting names that match the entered substring.
  4. Optionally, select Include members from related files or press Alt+N if you want to include members from files base classes and members from other parts of this class (in case this class is partial), or from other referenced files.
  5. Do one of the following:
    • To view the list of found members in the Find Results window, click Show in Find Results or press + on the numeric keypad.
    • To navigate directly to a particular member, select it in the lookup list and press Enter.

If you want to search only for constructors, enter new (with trailing space) in the search box as a filter.

Case-insensitive CamelHumps is supported here: for example, if there is a member FindAction in your file, you can find it by typing "FA" in the search box.

You can also use wildcards when specifying the name: '*' (asterisk) represents zero or more characters; '+' (plus) represents one or more characters; '?' (question mark) represents one or zero characters.


Whenever collecting items to match the specified string takes significant time, ReSharper displays an hourglass icon to the right of your search string. Substantial delays are to be expected when performing search before ReSharper loads completely.
