Yet another awesome feature of ReSharper – decompiled sources

We all know that ReSharper is amazing, right? But I keep discovering the scale of its awesomeness over and over again. Quite recently I have learned about one of the cool features which is navigation to decompiled sources. If you already know about it – skip along, but if not, I hope it makes your life a little bit better.

The feature allows seeing the implementations of library types and methods reconstructed by decompilation, including standard Microsoft classes. Just hit standard F12 to navigate to it.

It is disabled by default, but if you go to ReSharper’s options -> Tools -> External Sources and Select “Navigation to Sources”:

resharper_options

It’s important to check “Decompile methods” as well.

Hope it will help you to demystify magic!
