VS.Net Go To Implementation

Visual Studio has a nice “Go to definition” shortcut, but with our MVP pattern we are doing a lot of work against interfaces, which means that quite often going to definition actually takes us to a method in an interface.  For example:

Dim e As IEmployee = New Employee(1234)
Call e.GiveRaise(1.05)

If you did “Go to Definition” on “GiveRaise” you would not end up in the Employee class, but rather than IEmployee interface.

This plugin helps fix that problem.

I ended up skipping that part where he sets up the keyboard shortcut in favor of just using right click, but if you want to set that up you might find that the menu item he talks about is missing.  To get that dialog to show up use the keyboard shortcut CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+O.
