Visual studio: Smarttag menu


Smart tags are strings of text that have type information attached to them

When a text string that matches the criteria appears in a document, it is recognized and the user can perform actions appropriate for that type of string.

Ctrl + dot: displays options on SmartTag menu.  It is very especially useful for showing 'using' import options.

 

Eg: using ctrl + . to display 'using' options (import namesapce):

vs-ctrldot1

 

vs-ctrldot2

 

 

Eg2: ctrl + . to show smarttag.  Another import namespace example:

vs-ctrldot3

 

vs-ctrldot4
