JetBrains Rider 2023.3 Help

Go to Derived Symbols

This command gets the list of all derived symbols for a type or a member and lets you navigate directly to one of them, down the inheritance hierarchy. If you are looking for actual implementations and not interested in intermediate steps of the inheritance chain, use Go to Implementation.

You can invoke this command from the Solution Explorer, Structure, and other tool windows. If necessary, you can navigate in the opposite direction with the Go to Base Symbols command.

Navigate to derived symbols

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

  2. Press Control+Alt+B, choose Navigate | Go to Implementation(s) in the main menu, or click the symbol holding Ctrl+Alt keys.

  3. If the symbol has only one derived symbol, JetBrains Rider will navigate to it directly.

  4. If the symbol has several derived symbols, they will be listed in a drop-down. The list may contain items in both bold and regular font. Bold indicates that an item has direct inheritance, while the regular font is used for indirect inheritance.

    You can 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.

    • To view and analyze the list of matched items in the Find window, click Open in Find Tool Window App actions move to bottom left, press Shift+Enter or + on the numeric keypad .

If there are members in derived classes that hide the member you're navigating from, such members are displayed as strikethrough:

JetBrains Rider: Hidden inheritor

When a type or a member has inheritors in the current solution, JetBrains Rider adds a special icon (for example, Themed icon has overrides screen gray) to the left of the declaration. You can click the icon to expand the list of derived symbols and navigate.
