On the context menu of both the Member pane (right panel) and the Object pane (left panel), you’ll see the Go To Definition command. You can use this command to navigate directly into the code where whatever you have selected is defined (or you’ll get a nice error message).


The Edit.GoToDefinition command is bound to F12. Pressing F12 in the image just shown takes you to where Create() is defined in the code.

Happy Programming! =)
