New visualisation option: graph by reference

Feb 16, 2011 at 10:00 AM

AT present Refix has a graph option that goes through every assembly and shows the references to it, with versions.

An extremely useful alternative view would be to turn this on its head: list the actual references (i.e. your "third party dependencies") and show under that which of your projects/assemblies reference each. This would give rise to a much shorter graph, that would immediately answer the common question of "what in my solution is refrerencing dependency A version", which is an extremely common question for me to ask when trying to sort out dependency issues.

For example:

log4net v1.2.3.4
|- MyAssembly v1.2.3.4 
|- MyOtherAssembly v1.2.3.4  

NHibernate v1.2.3.4
|- MyDataLayer v1.2.3.4
