Call and value tracking come to Rider
Where does this value come from? Where are we using this value? What are the call trees this method is used in? Using the Inspect This… action (Ctrl+Alt+Shift+A in both ReSharper and Visual Studio keymaps), we can now let Rider figure this out for us.
Depending on where in the code we are and what we want to find out, we can use one of the four actions provided in the Inspect This… menu: Value Origin, Value Destination, Incoming Calls, or Outgoing Calls.
Value and call tracking can help us analyze a code base and investigate, for example, how an incorrect value might have been passed to a given point in our program, and where it might be passed next.
Value and call tracking are currently implemented in C# and VB.NET. In F#, the features don’t work yet but will hopefully be made available later on.
In related news, the Inspect Code action is now available in the context menu of Rider’s Solution Explorer.
To try value and call tracking on your own code base, download Rider 2017.2 EAP!
