Go To Definition - free tool for vs2010

Posted By:shankey       Posted Date: July 08, 2011    Points: 25    Category: General    URL: http://www.dotnetspark.com  

Make ctrl+click perform a "Go To Definition" on the identifier under the cursor. Also, when the control key is held down, highlight identifiers under the mouse that look like they have definitions to navigate to.

The extension is based, in part, on an earlier sample written by Huizhong Long, a QA member of the editor team (thanks Huizhong!).

Version history:

* v2.3 - Some bug fixes since 2.2 around places where state would get stuck incorrectly or highlights wouldn't show up.

* v2.2 - Navigation now happens on mouse up, and ctrl-click should work better with word selection and drag/drop.

* v2.1 - Fixed bug where the caret can get stuck as a hand even after the mouse is no longer over an identifier with the control key held down.

* v2.0 - Updated for RC/RTM.

* v1.31 - Updated icon/preview image.

* v1.3 - Bug fix release - fix two issues (with the same root cause):

  • (Reported by Craig Gidney) Ctrl+click doesn't work on tokens under breakpoints or the "highlight references" marker.
  • Unable to trigger a smart tag with ctrl+. (period) if the mouse also happens to be over a word that gets underlined when you hold down control.

* v1.2 - Updated for Beta 2.  Only user-visible change is that the go to definition command is sent on mouse down instead of mouse up.

* v1.1 - Mouse cursor turns to a hand when over a link.  Also, a non-functional change - remove accidentally included assemblies (the add reference dialog added them as CopyLocal=true, which bloated the vsix size up to about 800kb, from about 40kb).
