The Source-Navigator (http://sourcenav.sourceforge.net) has a built in editor, but you will be unhappy if your fingers are used to vi. To solve this, configure Source-Navigator to use gvim as the editor:

File menu, Project Preferences. Click on the Edit tab. In the External Editor box, enter

gvim "+call cursor(%l,%c)" %f

Now, double clicking on any symbol, function, etc in Source-Navigator will start gvim and position the cursor in front of the item you clicked.

[edit] Comments

now, how do i make source-navigator open files in different tabs of the same gvim window ? with the tip, each new file gets opened in a new window.

Please see here for asking questions. --JohnBeckett 06:13, 20 April 2008 (UTC)
But, you can probably make use of --remote-tab-silent to do this.
