Visual Studio .NET Code Cross Reference
Having trouble debugging or understanding complex Microsoft Visual
Studio .NET code? Trying to get up to speed in .NET development with C#
or Visual Basic .NET? Wondering how many hours that code change will
really take? Total .NET XRef provides you with the answer to these
questions and more.
Understand Your Code
Having trouble understanding C# or Visual Basic .NET code? Total
.NET XRef is the solution to this problem. Highlight a class,
variable, method, member, property, or any other code element you've
defined, and Total .NET XRef instantly builds a list of all references
to that item. In a few seconds, you can see everywhere an item is
used, and navigate through the list to see how your code really works.
Drill Down Into Problem Areas
As you develop and debug, you need to know where objects are
used. Total .NET XRef can help you find exactly where the problem is.
And as your projects grow in size and complexity, instant cross
reference of names becomes a necessity, not a luxury.
Determine the Real Cost of
So you want to re-factor a class, or re-write a method. How do you
know how much time the change is going to take? How destabilizing is
the change going to be to code? How many new bugs will you introduce
by making a change? The standard approach is to the make the change
and see what it breaks. If you have the time, you could also do a
lengthy manual analysis of your code to determine the impact. Both
approaches are fundamentally flawed. With Total .NET XRef, you can
instantly see the number of places a proposed change would affect,
making it much easier to determine the cost of the change and
determine whether or not the change is justified.
Seamless Visual Studio .NET Integration
Total .NET XRef is completely integrated into the Visual Studio
.NET environment. Load the product from the Tools menu, and a dockable
toolwindow is shown. To invoke Total .NET XRef, simply right-click on
the definition of any name in your source code, and the toolwindow
immediately lists all places that refer to that definition.
The list includes where the reference is, the line and column
number, and even shows you a code preview of the line. Click on the
item and Total .NET XRef moves you to that itemís source file. You can
sort or group the list by any field, or filter based on a condition
you define. Total .NET XRef even generates HTML-formatted reports so
you can print or save lists of references.
Built on our integrated .NET parser, Total .NET XRef parses your
entire project in the background and immediately knows exactly where
things are used.
- Completely integrated into Visual Studio .NET--Total .NET XRef
appears as a toolwindow right in the IDE.
- Right-click on any name in code you have defined and Total .NET
XRef instantly builds a list of every reference to that name.
- The XRef list shows the class name, member name, line and
column, type of reference, and a preview of the line of code
containing the reference.
- Supports C# and Visual Basic .NET code.
- Sort or group the list in any way you want. Multiple group
levels are supported.
- As you change your code, the background parser keeps up to date,
making new calls extremely fast.
- Total .NET XRef is written in 100% managed C#, and was designed
from the ground up to be completely integrated with Visual Studio
.NET and SourceSafe. With lightning-fast project parsing, a powerful
listview, and list reports, code cross reference and change analysis
is now easy and accurate.
