Navigate To Metadata View

ReSharper | Navigate | Navigate To | Metadata View
Ctrl+Shift+G | Metadata View
ReSharper_NavigateToMetadataView

This command allows you to navigate to signatures of types and methods reconstructed from metadata of library symbols. Metadata View is shown in the editor as a partly reconstructed source file, in read-only mode. All relevant ReSharper's navigation and search commands are available in the decompiled view.
The command becomes available when you invoke Navigate To on a library symbol in your source code and on decompiled sources. You can invoke this command from the editor, from the File Structure window and other tool windows.

Navigating to metadata view of a library symbol

If the target symbol has XML documentation comments, they are included in the metadata view.

This command is not available if the Default Visual Studio Navigation is selected in the Tools | External Sources page of ReSharper options. To make it available, select any other option in this group.
