Clicking on icons in left gutter

Is it planned to be able to click on the icons that appear in the left-hand side gutter to go to the overridden methods?

If not, this would be a nice addition.

It is supposed to work that way, but there are some problems with
implementation. That is why this functionality was not included into M2.

What about displaying some icon, in left gutter, for collapsed regions (with
a summary tooltip)? I like the left gutter and I like regions... what's a
person to do? lol

I could not understand what you mean. Could you please provide more detailed
explanation?

Hi Valentin,

Say you have overridden some methods. They get the cool new left gutter
icons on the method declaration line. Love it. Now you surround the
overridden methods with a #region and collapse it... now all the override
icons are hidden.

My question/suggestion is to display an icon, in left gutter, on the
collapsed region line. This icon indicates there are one or more icons in
the collapsed region. Floating the cursor over this "summary" icon would
display a tooltip for each of the icon/methods within the collapsed region.
To me this would make the left gutter/icons more inline with the
collapsed/tooltip metaphor used by VS.NET... only better of course!

Personally, I always thought VS.NET should work more like the above. If you
MO and float over a collapsed region the tooltip shows expanded methods
and code. Since MO collapses the methods as well... I think the VS.NET
tooltip should take the expanded/collapsed state, inside the collapsed
region, into account... meaning the VS.NET tooltip should display a list of
collapsed method decls.

I like this feature but unfortunately I think it's too difficult to
implement it within VS (using its published API).
