Open Corresponding File

Pairs or n-tuples of files within a project often correspond, or relate, to one another. For example, in C++, foo.h corresponds to foo.cpp. In a Windows Forms project, a design file Form1.Designer.cs might correspond to main code in Form1.cs. In an ASP.NET project, Page1.aspx might correspond to code-behind in Page1.cs.

Visual Assist simplifies switching between corresponding files.


Access Open Corresponding File with the default shortcut (Alt+O), via different shortcut for VAssistX.OpenCorrespondingFile, or via toolbar button.

If Visual Assist finds only one file that corresponds to the current file, the corresponding file opens immediately. If Visual Assist finds multiple corresponding files, a menu appears. Select from the menu via accelerator, Enter, or Tab.

Search for Corresponding Files

Visual Assist first examines the directory of the file you are editing for a corresponding file. If none are not found, Visual Assist searches your project.
