How to find Public Property's while using VS2010

I am maintaining an already built web application and I am trying to hunt down how certain values are obtained within a chunk of code. When I highlighted the text in question and clicked on "Go to definition", VS2010 takes me to the "Object Browser" instead of the definition. Why is that?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If the source code is not a part of your immediate project, then you will get the Object Browser instead. The object you are trying to view is a part of a compiled DLL that your project has a reference to. Without the source code, that's what you get.

As far as the public properties, that's exactly what you will see in the Object Browser. Any entry with the icon below is a public property:
