Description dynamite 2008-07-29 22:03:34 UTC
[ BUILD # : 200807251401 ]
[ JDK VERSION : 1.6.0_07 ]

The most frequent use I have for "find usages" is to find the
implementation of a method when I have a usage of it in front of me. 
If I don't know the class off-hand I can use "find usages", select
"find overriding methods" and de-select "find usages" and then
navigate to the source file from the "find usages" window.

However, I want an (possibly the) implementation, but there is no
indication in the more compact physical view of the "find usages"
window of whether a class is an interface, abstract or concrete.  It
would be useful:

1. if some indication was given without having to switch to the
logical view.
2. Given that this is a "find type" request, include a class
hierarchy  view to the "find usages" window that places each class in
relation to its position in the class hierarchy.
