Viewing Classes, Members, and Symbols
You can examine the objects and members in Visual Studio projects, and the objects and members in .NET Framework components, COM components, dynamic-link libraries (DLL), and type libraries (TLB).
In the Object Browser, you can expand available objects, for example, namespaces, types, interfaces, enumerations, and other containers, to reveal ordered lists of members such as classes, properties, methods, events, constants, variables, and other contained items.
In Class View, you can display a hierarchical view of the symbols for the objects and members in the projects you are developing. Each entry links to the line in the code where that instance occurs.
