I have this line of code in a .cs file:


If I select _contextOwner, I can right-click and do "Go to Definition" to jump to the code where it is defined.

If I select AsyncLoadings, the "Go to Definition" option is not in the right-click menu. If I hover the pointer on it, it shows a tooltip with its type, so it does recognize the definition.

I'm using MonoDevelop version 4.0.1, which is attached to the version of Unity we are using.

According to this:


The problem existed in MD 2.4.2 a few years ago. I would be surprised if it were not fixed in that time... maybe this is a Unity issue?

Can you try to update to a more recent monodevelop ? 

I can't reproduce that with 4.2.4.
Comment 2 almo2001 2014-02-21 10:10:10 UTC
I can do that, provided I would still be able to use the existing version if it's needed by our version of Unity. Can two different versions of MD coexist in the same Windows installation?
Comment 3 Mike Krüger 2014-02-21 10:10:46 UTC
Yes they can.
Comment 4 almo2001 2014-02-21 10:28:24 UTC
Same thing on 4.2.3. Must have something to do with our project setup. It's a unity project, which seems to generate a Visual Studio .sln file, which gets opened by MD.

If I open the .sln in VS, it is able to go to the definition of AsyncLoadings, so I'm sure it's defined properly in the codebase.

Are the navigation commands missing from members of all type, or just some types? If the latter case, is there something those types have in common e.g. they all come from the same assembly.

Would it be possible for you to create a test case we can use to reproduce this?
Comment 6 almo2001 2014-03-07 14:43:57 UTC
Ok, got a repro with a simple project in Xamarin 4.2.3. Attachment added, including screenshot.

Test case for bug.
Comment 8 Mike Krüger 2015-05-18 03:55:21 UTC
Just tested the project with 6.0 (roslyn).
All goto definition commands show up & work.
