I've been a great fan of Emacs in the past and used JDEE for sometime
with Java. One of the really nice modes provided an auto completion
function for typenames or variables. So for example if you had a long
variable/field name you could type the first few letters and hit a key
to complete, each match would be cycled. The Emacs function would check
through the current buffer (source file) for matches and cycle through
each in turn.
Has this kind of functionality been suggested or discussed for Resharper?
I also miss the ability in Windows editors to split the screen
horizontally and vertically, flip between the panes and load different
files into each pane. This becomes very useful when you want to flip to
the definition of a class or method and then flip back and leave the
code for reference. Most GUI based editors tile the windows (with title
bar adornmensts) which always felt too cumbersome (Codewright 6.x for
example). Not sure what could be done within a VS.NET plugin but
wondered if anyone else found this useful - One of the features I sorely
miss from Emacs.
