Add xml traversal in project navigation pane under Objects.

Issue #717 resolved
Justin Julicher created an issue

In the project navigation pane it would be great if you could display each of the object properties like:

  • Case
    • CustomFields
      • Status
    • ValidationRules
      • My Custom Val Rule
    • Etc.

And when you click on the val rule or custom field it will take you to the start of the xml node in the metadata.

    That's an interesting idea, Justin. SFDX metadata decomposition is pretty much doing the same thing, but in the filesystem. What you're suggesting here is to do it virtually for traditional (non-SFDX) projects in the Project view. Given that SFDX already does this, does that affect your interest in it? Any idea when/if you might be moving to SFDX?

    Hmm I would say not for a while... but I hadn't thought of SFDX and how it affects the file structure - I guess that will resolve my problem..... so would probably make this issue a moot point.

    thanks.

    Okay. Your call on whether to resolve this or keep it open. My guess is that since SFDX does provide exactly what's been requested but in a first-class form, it'll likely be lower priority.
