Description Marek Safar 2012-06-22 07:34:18 UTC
1. Create a new C# file outside of MD

add method like this to it

		public static void Foo (string where)

2. Open the file in MD. e.g. File => Open

where is displayed as a keyword which is incorrect. This happens mostly during debugging non-project code.
Comment 1 Mike Krüger 2012-06-22 07:45:58 UTC
y, non project code has semantic highlighting turned off, since references can't be resolved there.

Therefore it's more or less 'by design'.
Comment 2 Mike Krüger 2012-10-24 07:47:11 UTC
Works in ui-refresh - but again we turned off the semantic highlighting there.

Therfore no 'var'/type/method etc. highlighting.
