add keyboard handler or right click menu for when mouse is above guide line to go to top or bottom of block

Apr 25, 2012 at 2:58 PM

In visual studio there is a keyboard shortcut ctrl/shift up/down arrow to advance to the next syntactic element at the same level.

You can use this to navigate to the top or bottom of a block.  When you have a guide line extending over several pages, It would be very handy to be able

hover over the guideline and have a context menu selection or keyboard shortcut to go to the top and bottom of the block delineated by the guideline.

I don't seem to have that keyboard shortcut, so I guess that's one of your other extensions (VSCommands, maybe?). I like the idea though, so I'll create a feature issue for the keyboard shortcut. A context menu is highly unlikely - I don't want the guides to become 'active' elements that interfere with normal usage - but I will consider how a keyboard shortcut could work here.

Thanks,

It's not an extension, it's the
Edit.PreviousHighlightedReference binding where visual studio highlights syntactic elements if you are positioned on one and then you can use ctrl/shift up or down to go to the else, end if or end of loop. (in vb.net).

Ah, got it. I didn't actually know about that shortcut (C# doesn't do it for keywords, only identifiers).
