Visual call graph?

Mar 12, 2008 at 6:31 PM
I would like to know if there is a way to generate a visual method call graph using Reflector or some add-on; this would be really helpful for understanding a particular code base I have. Basically, I want to have what is provided through the treeview (after selecting "Analyze" on a method), but through a nice, printable graphic so I can visualize who is calling who. Does such an add-on exist?

If one doesn't exist I'm going to write it, because I think it would be highly useful.


P.S. Please note, I'm NOT interested in inheritance maps, etc. which is what most of the visual add-ons seem to show; I'm only interested in method call chains.

I started doing this here 1 and the follow up 2 but stopped as it is sometime not possible to guarantee a correct tree for virtual methods. See Jonathan's comment on the first post. I was trying to write it as separate application using Cecil so it may be possible to visualize what "Analyze" is doing.


Did you try using SequenceViz which is not exactly what you want but it can generate sequence diagrams for methods. (Standalone version) (Reflector Plugin)
