There is more to code editing than writing and modifying code. Find out how to use the Editor nav bar to help you understand and navigate your code and the subsections of a code file in Visual Studio 2015. Walt also shows to accomplish similar navigation with the Solution Explorer and Code View windows.
- I'd like to take a brief tour of the CodeEditor interface…and point out some features that help you understand…and navigate your code, and the subsections of a code file.…First, let's open some code files.…I've got some C# and Visual Basic…files available in these three projects.…I've got a BookLander project,…a CodeEditor project and a CodeEditorVB project.…I'll start by opening the CodeEditor project,…and then opening this Book.cs file.…It doesn't take a genius to know that the main…area of the CodeEditor is where you write code.…
I'll explore the rich set of features that are available…in this editor in another video.…Today, I want to explore the navbar feature…of the editor window.…It's this section across the top of the code window.…If you did not see it, you can enable it in Tools, Options.…Go to the All Languages section in the Text Editor section.…Then choose General and then…check this Navigation Bar check box.…Now you should see it.…The navbar is divided into three sections.…
Before I show you the three sections though,…

- Commenting code
- Using hover tips and IntelliSense
- Tracking changes
- Refactoring code
- Formatting and arranging code
- Navigating and inspecting code
- Using the Task List
