After typing a class name, add a context menu to add the corresponding USING entry for the class based on the assemblies referenced by the project.
BONUS: Add a context menu to allow stripping the namespace from fully specified class and create the corresponding USING entry.
Is that still needed post 11.4? 11.4 can insert USINGs for you while providing content assist.
@Mike: It would still be useful to have this a batch functionality on a set of sources (i.e. replace all fully qualified class references by the name + add necessary using statements). But you're right, the "Organize usings" functionality, and the automatic adding of USING statements has already filled a large part of the gap here...
I'm still yet to see "Automatically add USING instead of qualified name" actually work on my 11.5 install. It's a hit-or-miss feature.
My request is actually doing things in reverse - "I don't know the exact namespace, but I know my class name. Search for me all possible USINGs."
"My request is actually doing things in reverse - "I don't know the exact namespace, but I know my class name. Search for me all possible USINGs." " - Currently this request can be achieved using following way:
Enter class name and press Ctrl+space, content assist lists all options where this class is available with package information.
Select the right option from content assist list.
The respective USING statement is added at the top.
