RAD Studio (Common)
Structure View

When displaying the structure of source code or HTML, you can double-click an item to jump to its declaration or location in the Code Editor. When displaying components, you can double-click a component to select it on the form.  

If your code contains syntax errors, they are displayed in the Errors node in the Structure View. You can double-click an error to locate the corresponding source in the Code Editor. ( (Not applicable for C++ development.)
