ReSharper | Inspect | Hierarchies

This window displays the hierarchy of types that includes members and the list of all subtypes and supertypes of a particular type. You can inspect and analyze the hierarchy, navigate between the types and navigate to the declaration of any type. Also, it can display hierarchy of CSS styles .


Window tabs

When you open new type or style hierarchies 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 with 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 choosing the desired tab:
