Description Alan McGovern 2012-04-10 07:05:26 UTC
using System;

namespace sadfhgjhkfj
	class MainClass
		public static void Main (string[] args)
			while (true) {
				var t = new Thread

Write the above code and then right click on 'Thread'. The 'Resolve' option is not there as MonoDevelop does not realise that 'Thread' is a type which needs a using statement added.

If i change it to: "new Thread ();" and make the code syntactically valid, it will then offer the Resolve menu.

AST is wrong there - it gives me an ArrayCreateExpression. I try to make the resolve work - but must it be an array create expression ?

Fixed in master
Comment 3 Mike Krüger 2012-04-10 13:38:28 UTC
works now - I've written tests for that case.
