Hello,

Which syntax language are you using?  One of ours or a custom one of your own?

Hi Alexnaldo,

While we don't have anything built-in specifically for go to definition, it should be possible to implement it with the information we provide.  You could create a CSharpContextFactory and call its CreateContext method to get an IDotNetContext object back.  Then call that object's Resolve method to get a IResolverResultSet.  Look at the first result if there is one.  Each IResolverResult has an ITypeReference.  If there was a fully resolved result, this ITypeReference will be an ITypeDefinition.  ITypeDefinition has a SourceFileLocations collection that returns an ISourceFileLocation instance.  Each one of these consists of a string Key (which is generally a file path or document UniqueId GUID) and the NavigationOffset within that document.  By opening the related document and going to the NavigationOffset, you can achieve go to definition functionality.
