Description lindsey.driscoll 2012-05-07 13:04:12 UTC
Autocomplete lists instance methods when going to access a class's static method with the same name


public class A
  // static method
  public static void Method(string someParameter, object anotherParameter)

  // instance method
  public void Method()

public class B
  public static void Main()
    A.Method(); // <-- Autocomplete allows/shows the method, but 
                //     fails after building

It's not auto complete it's parameter insight :)
