I would love to have it search for symbols in the current file only. It would be great if I can do something like:
where ! means current file (I just picked an identifier, doesn't matter what it is!) and foo() is a function in the current file. This will make it similar to Visual Assist where its "List and search methods" drop-down list is an extremely fast way of navigating your current file.
After little bit more thought, it would be great if there is a 'within current file' modifier. For example:
Great extension. Can you provide the option to Navigate to current File Member. Currently it looks for the entered keyword everywhere but many times developer wants to navigate to the method/property/fields of the current file.
I really like this extension. I have some suggestions though.
- You should be able to write SomeComCWLN and get SomComplexClassWithLongName, but also SomeLonN and also get this class (but if there is a better match it should be first). Now only SCCWLN will work.
-the possibility to "narrow" results by providing other terms after space. For example, right now I can write "Index.cshtml" and get list of all Views files for Index action. If I only want views from HomeController I can write "index.c home" and narrow result to Index.cshtml from HomeController because files are matched also against path (and it matched "..\MyProject\View\Home\" path) It would be helpful if I could write "Create HoCo" and get all method that have "create" in name but from classes that would match HoCo pattern (HomeController for example)
-possibility to tell that files from particular folder name should be excluded from Navigate To results. For example it would be useful to exclude "T4" folder from T4MVC library so it won't clutter results (every action name is duplicated) Or maybe provide an option so files that have "// <auto-generated />" comment at beginning won't be considered in results.
If we get enough votes, it'll help us prioritize this over other things. Share it around
As a DarkTheme user that doesn't like modal dialogs i'm quite happy to see a replacement for the NavigateTo dialog that integrates much better into the new VisualStudio UI.
For now it seems to work quite well. With some further improvements it would be an excellent extension with 5 stars, till then 4.
My suggestions: 1.) Enable more filter options: Class, Property, Field, Method... 2.) Add an option to disable that the editor view automatically opens the item highlighted in the InlineNavigation list. In my opinion this behavior is quite annoying. If disabled e.g. space bar should open in editor view but leave InlineNavigation active, enter opens item in editor view and closes the inline navigation. 3.) Add the possiblity to also set the filter at the end of the search term. Often i search for something and when there are too many results I then want to apply an filter. So '~Something' and 'Something~' should deliver the same results.
Agree with previous review re: an option to disable previewing/opening auto-highlighted or single-clicked files in the Navigate To window. I've turned off Preview Tab in my main VS options and now auto-highlighted or single-clicked files in the Navigate To window are opened in full-edit mode, which is even more inconvenient than a preview tab.
I code with my monitor in portrait mode. I can see about an inch of the inline popup on the far right side of the screen, and the rest of it is offscreen. If I change my monitor landscape mode I can see the entire inline popup on the far right side of the screen.
Basically, the plugin needs to check to see what the bounds of the current monitor are, and it should always be rendered in a location so that the entire plugin is visible. This plugin is essentially unusable for me. I would actually prefer if the plugin location matched that of the built-in inline navigate to in Visual Studio 2013. There it is set up so that it always shows up just under the navigation drop down list at the top right of the screen rather than the far right side of the current highlighted line.
First, I love this extension - thanks!
I accidentally reset my keyboard bindings back to the default, and now CTRL+, opens the default navigate to dialog. I (un)(re)installed the extensions, but I can't get the keyboard hook to come back. Any ideas?
I'm using VS 2013 Preview, and it purports to have this extension built in, with a similar dialog for "ctrl+,", but it doesn't look like I can use the special filters (":" for line numbers, etc). Do you know if these features were intentionally left out, or am I doing something wrong?
We didn't get around to having the filters put in place - we are looking to build a more extensible system (with an example) so people can build their own filters, but that's still in the planning phases -
I'll check if its easy porting the prototype to the new VS 2013, at least that way you can keep using it.
I use Inline Navigate To at work and love it. I tried to install it in Visual Studio 2012 Express Web Edition Update 3 at home but found it not to be supported on that edition of Visual Studio.
Is the extension not supported in the Express editions at all? If not, can you please consider doing so!
The idea to combine few navigation dialogs into one is good and implemented well.
I would like to see it merged with Find/Find in Files/Search Solution Explorer. It's great to have single point of navigation with consistent experience.
