ReSharper 2020.3 Help

Go to Type of Symbol

ReSharper | Navigate | Type of Symbol
Control+Shift+T
ReSharper_GotoTypeDeclaration

While the Go to Declaration command navigates you to the place where a symbol is declared, the Type of Symbol command navigates to the declaration of the type of the currently selected symbol. For example, if you have a variable Foo myVar = new Foo(); and invoke this command on a usage of myVar, it will bring you to the declaration of the class Foo. If you invoke this command on a function, it navigates to the function's return type.

  1. Place the caret at a symbol in the editor or select the symbol in a tool window.

  2. Press Control+Shift+T or choose ReSharper | Navigate | Type of Symbol from the main menu . Alternatively, you can press Control+Shift+A, start typing the command name in the popup, and then choose it there.

If the item you navigate to belongs to the current solution, ReSharper opens the corresponding file in the editor and places the caret at the symbol declaration. If it is in referenced libraries, ReSharper navigates according to the settings defined on the Tools | External Sources page of ReSharper options (Alt+R, O).
