While you edit your files, Source Insight parses your project files. This allows you to locate classes, methods, functions, and more without having to compile your files.

Once a file has been added to your project, the names and locations of the symbol definitions in the file are stored in the project’s symbol database. The symbol definition can be found quickly using the following techniques. Remember, you can right-click on many objects in Source Insight to bring up the object’s shortcut menu. Some of the following commands are on the shortcut menus.
