Class Search Browser for VA Smalltalk

The Classes Interface Browser is a small search tool to quickly find a Smalltalk class or one of its methods. The two inputs fields on top provide filters for class names and method names of that class. From a selected class or method, you can open a Class Browser by double-clicking. Using the list popup menus, you can navigate (superclass, subclasses…) in the class hierarchy, add a breakpoint and navigate (redefined, overridden) in the method implementation hierarchy.

The “dots” button will popup a menu with the latest selections. De “inst” button will switch between instance and class methods. Another nice little detail is the method signature at the bottom of the window.
