Description Malcolm Rowe 2015-04-13 11:24:27 UTC
In mono-4.0.0/9236ac4 and master/bd471cb, C#6-style "using static" directives do not appear to be consulted if the type is a nested type.

(Note that - for master - this is after the fix for issue 28976, which in any case only affected types in different assemblies.)

-- Constants.cs
public class Constants
  public class One
      public override string ToString()
          return "1";
-- Program.cs
using static Constants;

static class Program
  static void Main(string[] args)
    System.Console.WriteLine(new One());

With master/bd471cb:

$ mcs -debug Program.cs Constants.cs
Program.cs(7,37): error CS0246: The type or namespace name `One' could not be found. Are you missing an assembly reference?
Program.cs(8,34): error CS0246: The type or namespace name `One' could not be found. Are you missing an assembly reference?

Replacing "One" in both cases with "Constants.One" works, and produces the expected output:

Fixed in master
