Great Job with File Structure Window

I've just started to use the new File Structure window more and it is cool!

Not only is this a great "v1" effort but it looks like a great platform to add a whole bunch of new tools (e.g., sort methods, sort regions, controlling collapse/expand state of region in code, auto-assignment of event handlers to specific region - the UI for this could be done here, etc...)

I'm excited to see what the future holds.

Keep up the Great Work!

Yup. It would be one of my permanent tool windows if the display setting was
persisted across VS sessions :)

The one gripe I'd have about it is somewhat related to this. There is not
shortcut to open it. Ctrl-F12 is assigned to the old popup (which I don't
use and have no intention of using :), so I reassign it to the tool window.
Works nicely to open it again after opening VS, but new builds of RS often
assign it back to the old version.

So question: why a shortcut for the old and not for the new? If anything,
Ctrl-F12 should be the new version by default :)


Nonetheless, I love this window :)

Me too... I really hope they are able to fix that problem with persisting
the tool window. I like to keep it docked.

And I use the old pop-up all the time. Just as I use Ctrl-N to "go to
type", I use Ctrl-F12 to "go to method" once I'm in a type. Give that a
try. Hit Ctrl-F12, type the first few characters of the method or property
name you want to go to, and voila! (I have "narrow down list on typing"
checked).

I find it VERY useful. And I want both.

I second that. It's wonderful but I need it to persist. Also being able to
narrow during typing would be nice as well, just like in Ctrl+F12. Methinks
CtrlShiftF12 is a good shortcut key. Or CtrlAltF12?

So do I. R# starts to bring some nice features of the good ol' Delphi IDE into VS.
ctrl+Click and now the file structure. You guys even made regions collapsible! :)

Can't wait to get a more stable build to start working with R#.
It's been a long time since I could use it for my daily work :(

Except for the narrowing part, that can be done just as well with the
dockable window :)
I hit Ctrl-F12 to activate the window, type the first few characters of the
method or property name I want to go to, and voilà :)

Two shortcuts then. Maybe Ctrl-F12 and Ctrl-Shift-F12, something like that
:)

In intelij IDEA, which from resharper features are coming, there are :
Ctrl + N > Go to class
Ctrl + Shift + N > Go to file

But there is also... one useful shortcut missing in resharper :
Ctrl + Shift + Alt + N > Go to symbol (method, member...)
(that's equivalent of what you say, ctrl-N then ctrl-F12)

Another idea feature i would like to see in resharper, which is not the most
complicated to do i think :
"filtering the lookup lists with the help of the "camel words" prefixes."
Example : UnitsInStock selected by typing (UIS)

If you like resharper, idea is the source... and so much better!...

This feature is already there after ctrlN and ctrlF12.

Oops - make that just ctrl+N.
