The VA Navigation Bar is anchored to the top or bottom of source windows.
The VA Navigation Bar contains several components to assist in the navigation and understanding of code:
- Context Field
- List of Methods in the current file
- Icons to Move Scope
- Definition Field
- GoTo Implementation button
You can control visibility and positioning of the VA Navigation Bar in the Display node of the Visual Assist options dialog.
Visual Assist versus Visual Studio
The VA Navigation Bar contains all important information provided by the IDE Navigation Bar.
The VA Navigation bar has a small context menu that can be opened from a component of the bar, not within the context or definition fields. The menu adjusts the display of namespaces and scopes in the Context Field, and the command executed when the Go button is pressed.
Disable IDE Navigation Bar
You can disable the IDE Navigation bar to reclaim space and eliminate redundancy. Disable the bar in the IDE options dialog for all languages, or for the ones in which the VA Navigation Bar will be active: C#, C/C++, and XAML.
Visual C++ 6.0
The IDE version of the navigation bar is called the Wizard Bar.
