Navigate To

  • 3 minutes to read

CodeRush includes the Jump To window that allows you to navigate inside the code structure and particular code fragments. For instance, you can navigate to the class declaration, list interface implementations, etc.

This feature works in C#, Visual Basic, TypeScript, JavaScript, CSS, XAML, and Blazor code. The following screencast shows the Jump To window in Blazor:


How to Use

To invoke the Jump To window, use one of the following ways:

  • Place the caret in the identifier and press Ctrl + Alt + N.


  • Use the CodeRush | Navigate | Jump to.. menu item.


  • The Num Decimal shortcut in the code editor.

The set of available navigation providers depends on the identifier type. The table below lists navigation providers:

Name Availability Target
Assignments When the caret is in a property, field, local parameter or event declaration/reference Any assignment of the variable
Base Types When the caret is in a class, structure or enumeration declaration or reference Any type in the inheritance chain
Declaration When the caret is in any symbol reference The symbol declaration
Derived Types When the caret is in a class or interface declaration or reference Any type derived from the current one
Parent Type Anywhere within the type (interface, class, structure or enumeration) block The declaration of the type at the caret’s location
Members When the caret is in a type declaration, or anywhere within the type block (works for partial types) Any member of the current type
Instantiations When the caret is in a class or structure declaration or reference Any instantiation of the class/structure
Implementations When the caret is in an interface, abstract class declaration, abstract member or reference Any implementation of the type or member
Implemented API When the caret is in an interface or class declaration or reference Any exposed member
Overloads When the caret is in a method declaration or reference Any overload of the member
Overrides When the caret is in a base class or an overridden member of the abstract or virtual class Any override of the member
Overridden Base Member When the caret is in an overridden member Base member overridden by the current one
References When the caret is in an identifier Any identifier
Symbol Anywhere Any symbol in the solution
File Everywhere Any file in the solution
Open File Everywhere Any opened file
XAML Element Everywhere Any named element in your XAML code
Everything Everywhere Any file or symbol in the solution

TypeScript Support

The Base Types, Derived Types, Members, Instantiations and Implementations navigation providers are also available in TypeScript code.


View Search Results in the References Window

  • Invoke the Jump To window.

  • Select the navigation provider (for example, Symbol).


  • Type a symbol’s name or a part of it in the search field.

    The Jump to window filters the search result list dynamically as you type.


    The Jump to window also highlights the locations of symbols for the active file/type.

  • Click the “Display data in a separate window” button to open the References window.


    CodeRush shows filtered search result list in the References window.


  • Choose an item in the search result list. CodeRush navigates to the corresponding location in the code editor.



    When the References window is opened, press F8 to jump to the next item and press Shift + F8 to jump to the previous item.
