Go to Containing Declaration

ReSharper | Navigate | Containing Declaration
Ctrl+[
ReSharper_GotoContainingDeclaration

With a single shortcut, ReSharper helps you quickly navigate to the declaration of a type or a function from any position within its body.

To navigate to a containing declaration

  1. Set the caret into any position within the body of a type or a function.

  2. Press Ctrl+[ or choose ReSharper | Navigate | Containing Declaration from the main menu. Alternatively, you can press Ctrl+Shift+A, start typing the command name in the pop-up, and then choose it there.

  3. ReSharper will set the caret to the declaration of the type or function.

  4. If the type or function is declared within another type, you can repeat step two to navigate to the declaration of the containing type.
