Description Alan McGovern 2011-09-29 06:39:52 UTC
I just saw the following code in MonoDevelop:

public ConstructorName (string name, Sort sortDirection = Sort.Ascending)

when I call this constructor it'd be nice to know that the second parameter is optional. I'm not sure what'd be the best way to implement this. MD could fudge this into two constructors magically in the code completion list. Alternatively it could put brackets around optional parameters so you know they're optional.
