  • Hi Saman,

    According to your description, you want to navigate the aspx/html tags and controls in Visual Studio Editor, is it right?

    In Visual Studio HTML editor, there has a tag navigation bar under the text editor, which could help us select the tags on page based on the hierarchy.

    If this bar is not shown in the bottom in HTML editor, please open the Tools -> Options -> Text Editor -> HTML -> Advanced and set the Enable Tag Navigator as True.

    If misunderstanding, please feel free to let me know.

  • Hello,
    Thank you Weiwei,
    You're right, thank you for your answer. it is good, but not enough suitable for keyboard. and It doesn't give me a good view to all codes and tags . An example for a good view is Class View. and a third party one is CodeMaid but both of them works on C# code not for aspx.
    i need a tools to explore aspx codes and tags.

    Best wishes,

    Saman

  • Hi Saman Chalian,

    All the tools from Microsoft, such as Object View, Call hierarchy and so on, are support C# or C++, but not work for aspx and html file. And I also searching for some third part tools, I don't find anyone that support aspx and html.

    Before there has such tools release, I suggest you use the default tag navigation bar in Visual Studio to choose the tags on page.
