Keyboard: CTRL + ALT + K (anywhere); CTRL + K,T (cursor must be on a member name)
Menu: View -> Call Hierarchy
Command: View.CallHierarchy; EditorContextMenus.CodeWindow.ViewCallHierarchy
For the C# folks this is one heck of a great feature: The Call Hierarchy. It allows you to visualize all calls to and from a selected method, property, or constructor. To see how it works just right-click on any method, property, or constructor in the Editor and select View Call Hierarchy:
You should get a window similar to this one (amount of information will vary):
Notice there are “Calls To” and “Calls From” areas related to your selection. You can expand them out:
When you click on a node in the tree, the Call Sites window updates so you can visit the call if you want to:
You can continue expanding the hierarchy to see more “Calls To” and “Calls From” information:
The best part is you can right-click on a symbol and get all kinds of options:
Here are some options you may come across:
Context Menu Item
Add As New Root
Adds the selected node to the tree view pane as a new root node.
Removes the selected root node from the tree view pane. This option is available only from a root node.
You can also use the Remove Root toolbar button to remove the selected root node.
Go To Definition
Runs the Go To Definition command on the selected node. This navigates to the original definition for a method call or variable definition.
You can also press F12 to run the Go To Definition command on the selected node.
Find All References
Runs the Find All References command on the selected node. This finds all the lines of code in your project that reference a class or member.
You can also use SHIFT+F12 to run the Find All References command on the selected node.
Copies the contents of the selected node (but not its subnodes).
Collapses the selected node so that re-expanding it displays current information.
