Check out the CR_MethodPreview plugin screencast below with Rory Becker. Rory’s cooked up another great little plugin that shows you the code of a method in a tool tip. Even if the method is in a separate file or module.

That is one of the best plugins I have seen, everyone should try this.

One suggestion though maybe clicking inside the tooltip or a button inside it could take you to the method for editing.

I believe "Click Identifier" might provide what you're after.

Once Enabled...


Follow these steps to get to the Click  Identifier options page:

1. From the DevExpress menu, select "Options...".

2. In the tree view on the left, navigate to this folder:


3. Select the "Click  Identifier" options page.

------------------------------------------------------------- should be able to hold the Ctrl key and hover over a method.

At this point it will light up like a hyperlink and clicking will carry you to the declaration of said method.
