Persisting the “Find All References” results in Visual Studio 2017

By | April 6, 2017

The Find All Reference Window in Visual Studio 2017 comes with brand new flavor. Starting from Syntax Colorization, grouping the results based on several categorizations such as Project, definition etc. and along with code snippet preview. You can even set the context of reference such as Entire Solution, Current Project etc.

Above all these, one of the interesting feature that you may overlooked is “persisting the current findings” by locking the results. The “Keep Results” buttons in the reference toolbar can holds the current findings and subsequent results would appear in a new tab.
