Error Stripe and Status Indicator
Error stripe and Status Indicator visualize the results of the design-time code inspection in the current file and navigate between code issues. Also, the error stripe displays special marks for other features, for example when you highlight usages in the current file.
The error stripe is not shown and the status indicator shows the pause icon if:
Error stripe is a sidebar integrated into the editor scroll bar. The Error stripe can represent the following items as individual markers:
Code issues found by JetBrains Rider's design-time inspection.
Markers have different colors representing kinds of corresponding items. Colors may vary between various color schemes but you can configure error stripe colors for each item kind individually.
The position of a marker on the bar indicates the relative position of the corresponding item in the file. You can get popup tips for each item by placing the mouse pointer over markers, and you can navigate directly to relevant lines of code by clicking on them.
If the code corresponding to the marker is outside the visible editor area, and Show code lens on scrollbar hover is enabled on the page of JetBrains Rider settings Ctrl+Alt+S, JetBrains Rider will display this code fragment in a popup when you hover the mouse over the marker:

Whenever you see a red marker, it means that the file contains errors that would either prevent the project from compiling or lead to exceptions in runtime, unless Treat warnings as errors is enabled in project properties.
A yellow marker means that there are some warnings, but no errors that would prevent the project from compiling.
The file is excluded from code inspection. You can include it back thus enabling the code inspection by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Shift+8.
