Go to Usages of Symbol

ReSharper | Navigate | Usages of Symbol
Control+Alt+F7
ReSharper_GotoUsage

This command allows you quickly navigate to a specific usage of a symbol from its declaration or any other usage. You can invoke this command from the Solution Explorer, from the File Structure window and other tool windows. The opposite navigation is available with the Go to Declaration command.

The list of usages that you get with this command is the same as that of Find Usages. But this command is more convenient for symbols with a limited number of usages, in cases when you are looking for a specific usage and want to get to this usage without opening the Find Results window.

You can configure ReSharper behavior for the cases when a single usage is discovered. By default, the usage is displayed in a popup. If you want ReSharper to jump tho the single usage in these cases, select the corresponding option (Go to Usage: if there is only one result, navigate without displaying the list) on the Environment | Search & Navigation page of ReSharper options.

Navigate to a usage of a symbol from the current context

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

  2. Press Control+Alt+F7 or choose ReSharper | Navigate | Usages 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.

  3. If there are multiple usages, they appear in a popup with their contexts. Do one of the following:

    • Click the desired item to open it in the editor.

    • Select the desired item by pressing Up and Down and then press Enter to open it in the editor.

    • Start typing to filter results. Note that you can use CamelHumps here. If necessary, press Esc once to clear the filtering.

    • To view and analyze the list of matched items in the Find Results window, click Show in Find Results ThemedIcon SearchResults Screen Gray png, press Shift+Enter or + on the numeric keypad .

    • To show the matched items on the type dependency diagram, press Alt+Num+ or click Show on Diagram ThemedIcon TypeLayoutAlt Screen Gray png.

You can also list and study symbol usages in the Peek Definition view.

To do so, by default you can Ctrl-click the declaration or any usage with the middle mouse button. If you want to disable this, clear the Use Ctrl+Middle Button Click Peek Usages checkbox on the Environment | Search & Navigation page of ReSharper options (Alt+R O). Or you can always invoke this command from the main menu: ReSharper | Navigate | Peek | Peek Usages.
