Chapter 8. Show Usages

To search where a function, variable, class, module, or any other entity is used, place the cursor on its name and use the "References: Find All References" command.

The results are presented in the References View.

When searching for usages of a virtual function, by default you also see the usages of functions overridden by it.

To hide such matches, use the "Hide References To Overridden" preference from File > Preferences > Settings > Extensions > DVT > References.

When searching for usages of a class field whose enclosing scope is a specialized class, the usages of different specializations are not shown.

Use the "Hide Type Incompatible Specializations" preference from File > Preferences > Settings > Extensions > DVT > References. The same applies for functions or tasks and its arguments.
