Description

I have a class inherited from a interface. The class implements method from the interface. If I then have something like

IMyInterface myInstance = new cMyClass();
myInstance.MyMethod();

and I say "Go To Definition" of MyMethod, VS shows me the Interface which is OK. But addistionally it would be niche if I could say "Go To Implementation" which shows me the Implementation of the method.

tsch,

I'm happy to say that we're planning on adding a feature in the upcoming VS release that should address your suggestion. This feature will be a part of our Call Hierarchy feature, which allows you to view the call paths into and out of a method, and will also allow you to retrieve a list of the implementors for a particular interface method. I'd love to hear your feedback on this feature so please keep an eye out for preview releases of VS and feel free to contact me directly at djpark@microsoft.com.

Thanks!
