Shortcut key for returning to previous location?

Post by carsonw » Thu Feb 16, 2012 10:22 pm

Right now I can go to a definition by hitting ctrl+enter. I might to this a few times which can take me quite far away from where I started. Is there a shortcut to go back where I just was? Thanks :)

Is this a Ranorex specific question? Because currently I don't know what you are trying to do.

I don't think there is a shortcut for SharpDevelop to do this - see them all here http://wiki.sharpdevelop.net/KeyboardShortcuts.ashx

You could click on the method then hit F12 though and that will show you all references to that method. One of those references will be where you came from....

You are right, currently there is no such shortcut. So I added a feature request to add menu items (including shortcuts) for navigating back and forward. Should be shipped with the next Ranorex version :)

That's great, thank you! Yeah ctrl-enter will bring me to the method definition but there's no stepping back - it drove me crazy in QTP, glad to see it added for the future in Ranorex :)

From the latest Patch Notes:
Added "Navigate Back/Forward" menu items (including shortcuts)

Thank you Ranorex! It's very convenient and much appreciated! :P
