How to navigate to the function declaration RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi I am kinda new to the visual studio.

    I have a project in C language. There are few function declarations in the code which are located in different parts of the files. I am unable to navigate to that location where the function or variable is declared. Can I know how to enable it ?

    I am using microsoft visual studio 2008 version 9.0.30729.1 SP
    Thanks in advance

  • try open it manually from the project file .. You should have project.h and project.c and other files are visual studio files if you found any... If you are unable to navigate, it seems something is missing.

    Describe what you have tried, and what happened.

  • Have you tried to right click and then choose "Go to declaration" or "Go to definition"?

  • I opened all the source and header files in the folder. In a source file there are many functions which are declared in many header files. I then highlight the function right click it and then select go to declaration or go to definition, VS says the symbol "....." is not defined.

  • Does this happen with all projects, or only one/some?

    Have you tried a "Clean" from the Build menu or project pop-up menu?

    Have you tried manually deleting the *.ncb file? (Close the solution, navigate to the project
    directory using Explorer or equivalent, delete the *.ncb file, reopen the solution/project.)

  • Its a pure C project. Its not  Visual C++ project. I am unable to open that way but my friend who has the same version of Visual C++ is able to open the declaration and stuff.
