How to get all classes that reference another class in Architecture Explorer? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm having trouble getting the results that I'm looking for.  Basically I want to find all references to a class in an assembly.  In VS I can just right click the name and say Find All References.  This gives me the list I'm looking for.  However, it doesn't seem to be working in Architecture Explorer.  When I select the class and select All Inbound the result is the containing namespace.  If I click Referenced By or Used By I get zero results.  Any ideas?

  • Yes, sorry about that. The "referenced by" command only shows all the references you traversed on the left.  It is not designed to do "find all references" although we are getting a lot of comments like yours.  Thanks for your feedback.
