I am new to VSCode.

There is an Apex class like this:

class MyClass1{
     public static void someMethod(){

Other class:

     public static void someMethod2(){

I used to use Sublime Text, which shows the possible occurrence of the method in a list while hovering the mouse and we can navigate to the method by clicking appropriate option in the list.

I tried right-clicking the someMethod2() call in someMethod(), but it was not showing any option to navigate to someMethod2(). It was showing below options:

enter image description here

In VSCode one option is I can open MyClass2 and find the someMethod2().

While working on MyClass1, how can I directly navigate to someMethod2()?


There is an option for it, you can right-click on the method name and then 'Go to Definition'. This also works for Classes and Variables.

But there is a problem, this works well for the class's internal members but not external class's members.

But again, this works on the External classes.

Edit: As suggested by @Keith, On a Mac, holding down the command key results in a hyperlink appearing (if available) enter image description here

  • Worth mentioning that e.g. on a Mac, holding down the command key results in a hyperlink appearing (if available). – Keith C Jul 31 '19 at 8:08
  • @KeithC thanks for the info, I was unaware about that. So what that hyperlink refers to? – rahul gawale Jul 31 '19 at 8:11

    Clicking on it is a quick way to "Go to Definition". – Keith C Jul 31 '19 at 8:33
  • @rahulgawale I am not able to see ** Go to Definition** when right-clicked the method name. When click by pressing ctrl, the method does not turn into hyperlink. – वरुण Aug 1 '19 at 6:17
  • @वरुण The command button thing works only on Mac, what is the version of your VS Code? – rahul gawale Aug 1 '19 at 6:54
