- Surround With Live Template. Basically I want a 'selection' to play a
part in the expanded template. Really, what I want is more like "Insert
Live Template" that acts on selected text. It might not always 'surround'
the selected text, but might transform it or replace it in some way, doing
substitutions in the template based on the selected text. For example, I
have a code pattern I use all over the place where the only thing that
changes is the Class name. I'd like to be able to type the class name, and
then invoke the template, which would then expand the selected template
using that class name.
- Better editing of Live Templates: It'd be nice to have a list of macros
that can be inserted (so you always know what's available without having to
look things up in Help)... maybe a drop down list with all the macro names,
and an 'insert macro' button to insert the currently selected macro at the
cursor location. At that point, you could edit the variable properties in
the bottom window.
- You mentioned that "Go To Symbol" would be difficult or inefficient to do
in VS2003 ... could you have just a "Go To Method" maybe? Or is that no
less difficult or inefficient? I find myself missing the Go To Symbol
feature a lot, and nine times out of ten, it's because I want to go to a
method name (and would like to know which objects have that method, or I
forget which of several objects implement that method).
