Did you know… How to use the Code Definition Window

For Visual Studio 2005, we have a new tool window called the Code Definition Window.  The Code Definition Window allows you to view the definition of a method without leaving your place in the editor.   To view the definition, just place the cursor on the symbol, and the tool window will update with the definition.  The Code Definition Window works for VC and C# projects. 

Happy Visual Studio’ing!

    I’ve seen this window before in the VC++ Express, but fail to find it in Beta 2. Has it been removed from the Express SKUs?

    P.S.: I should get the real thing ASAP 🙂

    Yep, it was removed between Beta 1 and Beta 2 for the VC ExSKU. I don’t own this feature, so i’m not sure why it was removed. If you’re curious why it was removed, i would post the question on a VC blog or MSDN Forums / newsgroups.
