JetBrains Rider 2019.2 Help

Navigation within Resx Files

JetBrains Rider will help you navigate and search for resources within these files. The Go to File Member command works perfectly in .resx files and allows you to jump to any resource with a few keystrokes.

To navigate resources in the editor

  1. Open a .resx file in the editor.

  2. Press Alt+\ or choose Navigate | File Member from the main menu. Alternatively, you can press Ctrl+Shift+A, start typing the command name in the popup, and then choose it there.

  3. You will see the list of resource entries in a popup. You can start typing to narrow down the list.

  4. When you see the desired string in the list, select it and press Enter or click on it.

JetBrains Rider's Structure window can display the structure of resource files. It lists all resource entries in a resource file, visualizing resource IDs, resource text in the current culture, and resource comments (if any).

To navigate to resources from File Structure

  1. Open a .resx file in the editor.

  2. Press N/A or choose View | Tools Windows | Structure.

  3. In the Structure window that appears, select the desired string and double-click on it to locate it in the editor.

  4. Optionally, you can use navigation and refactoring features provided by the File Structure windows.
