Navigate To Metadata View

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 commands are available in the this 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 Solution Explorer, from the File Structure window and other tool windows.
