Opening a Type in the Package Explorer View

You can open the Package Explorer on any type that is included on a project's class path.

  1. From the menu bar, select Navigate > Go To > Type. The Go to Type dialog opens.
  2. In the Choose a type field, begin typing an expression to narrow the list of available types, using wildcards as needed. As you type, the list is filtered to display only types that match the current expression.
  3. In the Matching items list, select a type. Hint: you can press the Down key to move to the first type.
  4. Click OK when you are done. The selected type is displayed in the Package Explorer.

Note: The Goto Type dialog maintains a history of recently opened types. These are shown when the dialog is opened and stay above a separator line when you start to type a filter expression.

Note: Revealing may not be possible if Package Explorer filters are applied.
