ReSharper | Inspect | Code Issues in Solution
ReSharper | Inspect | Code Issues in Current Project

To inspect code in solution, project or a custom scope
  1. Decide whether you want the results of the solution-wide inspections (e.g. unused public members) to be included in the report. If you need it, then enable the solution wide-analysis. Note that when the solution-wide analysis is enabled, ReSharper has to analyze the whole solution even if you need to inspect a single project, so be prepared that it takes more time.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • On the main menu, choose ReSharper | Inspect | Code Issues in Solution or ReSharper | Inspect | Code Issues in Current Project.
    • In the Solution Explorer, select items (files, folders, projects, solution folders) that you want to inspect, right-click the selection and choose Find Code Issues in the context menu.
    • In the Architecture View, select one or more items, right-click the selection and choose Find Code Issues in the context menu.
  3. The Inspection Results window will open automatically after code inspection finishes running.


You can also inspect code in a specific scope from the command line without starting Visual Studio and ReSharper.

In the Inspection Results window, you can view the list of discovered code issues and navigate to them by double-clicking the entries:

Detected code issues in the Inspection Result window

Each new run of code inspection opens a new tab in the window so the results of previous runs are preserved until you close their tabs.

By default, issues are grouped by files. If necessary, you can regroup issues by type, severity, etc. using the Group by: selector.

To check context of the selected code issue, use the Preview pane that displays one or more lines related to the issue in the code file. Use the Show Preview toolbar_show_preview selector to open the pane in the bottom or on the right of the window.

To filter issues in the current tab of Inspection Results
  • If you want to hide some type of issues or hide all other issues except issues of this type, right-click a node and choose Hide All [Issue type] Issues or Show Only [Issue type] Issues correspondingly.
  • For more precise filtering, click Filter Issues Reference__Windows__Inspection_Results__Filter on the toolbar and use the Filter Issues dialog box to specify issue types that should be displayed.


You can share found issues by copying them to the clipboard or exporting to a file. For more information, see Sharing Inspection Results.
