As titled

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Create a inner class and declare a few private fields in the outer class

Actual Results:
When typing, the intellisense does not offer those fields of outer class

Expected Results:
the intellisense does offer those fields of outer class

How often does this happen? 

Additional Information:

I think, to be exact, the correct terms are nested class and enclosing class. but I think you get the idea
Comment 2 Mike Krüger 2012-10-25 00:48:03 UTC
The fields are not accessible - maybe that's why ?

class Test
    int test;
    static int test2;

    class Foo
        void Inner ()


In Inner test2 is in the list - test is not. But that's correct. If I misunderstood something - can you provide an example file ?
