Description tomzi 2011-12-19 09:50:18 UTC
.) Call 'Find Usage' on some private variable -> results are being shown in the Usages dialoge.

Usage of variableA [2 occurrences]
-.. moduleA
  - .. myPackage.subpackage
    - ..
      -.. MyClass
       -.. getVariableA
          -> return VariableA;
       -.. setVariableA
          -> this.variableA = variableA;

Currently if I click on '', 'return VariableA', 'this.variableA = variableA;' the corresponding part in the Class is being opened. 
However the user is not able to see which part of that tree actually opens something. So I keep trying to click on parts of the tree eg. 'getVariableA' in order to be navigated to the getter, but it actually doesn't.

This behaviour is kinda frustrating because as I said, some parts of the tree open sth, and some don't, but I don't know which part does and which part does not. So I keep trying. And that adds to the frustration level ...

I would expect eg:
Additionally, double clicking on:
.) 'MyClass' (not just '') will navigate me to MyClass (or the eg the first constructor)
.) 'getVariableA' and ' setVariableA' will navigate me to the beginning of each method.
