Another Key Binding

Posted by Kirby Turner on April 25, 2005

I just discovered another useful key binding in the Delphi IDE. Alt+[Up Arrow] will take you to the declaration of the token and Alt+[Left Arrow] will return you to the previous position. These two bindings are very useful for navigating code. For instance, you can place the cursor on the name of a method anywhere in code, press Alt+[Up Arrow] to go to the implementation of the method, then press Alt+[Left Arrow] to return back to the original cursor position.

The old VB IDE did something similar with F7 and Ctrl+F7 (I think those were the bindings but I could be wrong). Unfortunately the VS.NET does not have bindings for these, which I have sorely missed.
