Description Lopatkin Ilja 2013-09-10 02:36:10 UTC
Let's say we have three different namespaces in three different files:

namespace Foo {
    public class Stuff {

namespace Bar {
    using Foo;

    public class Base {
        public abstract void Method(Stuff stuff);

namespace Bazz {
    using Bar;

    public class Derived: Base {

Now if I try to override Method in Derived I'll get the following:

public override void Method(Foo.Stuff stuff) {
    throw new NotImplementedException();

But instead I'd like to get this:

using Foo;


public override void Method(Stuff stuff) {
    throw new NotImplementedException();

I guess it'll be useful to add some kind of an option to switch between this two behaviours.
