The Code Explorer:

  • Is displayed in the upper right pane in the IDE when you are editing code in the Code Editor.
    This is the same pane that is used by the Structure View when you are working in the Form Designer.
  • Allows you to navigate through the unit files of the current project.
  • Displays a tree diagram that shows all of the types, classes, properties, methods, global variables, and global routines defined in each unit.
  • Shows the other units listed in the uses clause.

For further information about the Code Explorer, including the context menu, see Structure View.
