All metadata items are displayed in a categorized tree view in the
Metadata node that appears under each assembly in the Assembly Explorer window. Noticeable features of this node include:
Automatically finding and displaying usages of metadata table items.
Decoding and displaying values of blob items.
On double-click, decompiling and displaying code that corresponds to the metadata item.
Exploring PE file headers.
Exploring contents of Debug and Resource directories.
Exploring contents of the associated standalone or embedded Portable PDB.
