Coderush Quick File Navigation tool window
Quick File Nav navigation CodeRush feature allows you to switch between all files in a solution. The shortcut key for this tool window is the Ctrl+Alt+F. Once you press the shortcut, the following window appears at the editor caret position or at the center of the Visual Studio main window:
The window consists of two parts – the filter box, which can be hidden, and the files list sorted alphabetically. If you hover over a file name – its full path will be shown.
There are only two options you can tweak:
- toggle the visibility of the filter box (enabled, by default)
- toggle the visibility of a project name caption near a file name (disabled, by default)
These options are available via the right-click context menu:
With both options turned on, the window will look like this:
The filtering works the same way as in all other file-navigation windows, such as Browse Recent Files and Open Files. In the filter box, you have to type the file mask, for example “*.resx” (without quotes). Camel-case filtering is also available, so typing “AI” will find the “AssemblyInfo.cs” file, where “AI” will identify two words: “Assembly” and “Info”.
Bear in mind, that this tool window is not modal, and it will be hidden once it loses focus. The Esc key will hide the window as well. Up and Down arrow keys are suitable for navigating between files in the list.—– Products: CodeRush Pro and CodeRush Xpress Versions: 10.2 and up VS IDEs: any Updated: Aug/05/2011 ID: C094
