How does the .Net Reflector's Analyze feature work?

I'm trying to figure what types in a set of assemblies use a particular type from a .Net Framework assembly. How do I tell Reflector what assemblies to analyze? will it use the ones I explicitly load (+ dependent ones)?

I would like to better understand how the 'used by' and 'depends on' features work so that I know with certainty whether my type usage/dependency analysis is reliable.

BTW: this feature is just awesome!

    Hi there,

    Thanks for your post! Glad to hear you like the analyzer feature. :)

    Reflector will analyze whichever assemblies are currently in the object browser. (For the desktop version, you can add/remove assemblies to the object browser as you please, but for the extension, it will only show assemblies that are directly referenced by the current solution)

    Hope that helps!
