JetBrains Rider 2024.1 Help

Explore type hierarchy

With JetBrains Rider, you can investigate the inheritance hierarchy of types from your solution and from referenced libraries. You can see both base types and inheritors of the selected type and navigate to any of them with a mouse click. For any node in the hierarchy, you can view all or only polymorphic members in the preview pane.

Investigate hierarchy

  1. Locate the desired type in the editor or expand it in the Assembly Explorer.

  2. Press Ctrl+H or choose Navigate | Type Hierarchy from the main menu . Alternatively, you can press Ctrl+Shift+A, start typing the command name in the popup, and then choose it there.

  3. Examine type hierarchy in the dedicated tab that adds to the Hierarchy window.

Viewing type hierarchy

Hierarchies can be rather complicated, making it difficult to find one particular symbol, especially when you have doubts about its name and place in the hierarchy. In such case you can start typing a part of symbol's name or its CamelHumps abbreviation and JetBrains Rider narrows down the set of elements in the window:

Filtering members in type hierarchy

Rebuild a hierarchy for an intermediate node
