View/go-to overloads?

I just had an experience where I really wanted to be able to get a list of
over-loads for the current method (I was positioned at a usage, not within
the object that declares it) so that I could see the various options
available. It also struck me it would have been nice to be able to quickly
navigate to one of the overloads...

Is this currently possible in some round-about way? If not, would a "show
overloads" function be something that might be implemented? I was actually
hoping for more of a drop-down list, rather than the Ctrl+P option, but
maybe Ctrl-P is enough (though it strikes me as a bit hard to read). And a
drop down list would let me navigate easily.

Just an idle thought I had. Comments?

Does anybody else here think that navigation to overloads would be useful?
Any ideas?

Absolutely - that would be great to be able to do that.

Hello Valentin,

Definately!
