Is there a way to go to definition directly, without the popup that shows the declaration and definition?
Should I just use Visual Studio's Edit.GotoDefinition?

Yes, a Ctrl+Alt+G would be nice.

Unfortunately this is not currently possible with VA, but we are considering adding separate forms of goto, one for the declaration and one for the implementation:

case=66885

The implementation is the first item listed in the alt-g menu, so you can just use Alt-g, Enter to go directly to the implementation if you want. Not quite the same, but it might help a bit.

Are there any news on this?
The newest Build 2112 contained some changes regarding the Alt+G-functionality, but it still seems not to be possible to directly jump to the corresponding definition.
Some colleagues of mine even stopped using Visual Studio/Assist because of this and started using Eclipse (Eclipse seems to be able to do that directly).

Unfortunately no update on this yet. Have you tried using the IDE command "Edit.GoToDefinition", which is mapped to F12 by default on my system?

Hello feline, thank you for your reply.
We experienced performance issues with the built in IntelliSense, due to our very big Visual Studio solution (Visual Studio got slow, wasn't responding and so on). Therefore we disabled IntelliSense and just wanted to rely on the Alt+G functionality of Visual Assist. The performance is great now, the only thing missing is a direct way to go to the definition - which seems to be a pretty big deal to many colleagues.

Thank you for your feedback. I've added a comment to the case which will help when we prioritise feature requests.

case=66885 is implemented in build 2358 via a new setting on the Goto page of the VA Options dialog that controls the behavior of Goto (Alt+G).
