Sorry for the late response. It was my mistake to point Ctrl + dot as the shortcut for showing JustCode's visual aids menu. In the latest release (Q2 Service Pack - 2010.2 826) the visual aids have keyboard navigation as well - the shortcut is as mentioned Ctrl + ~ (or more accurately Ctrl + `). It will show the available context menus and you can use the arrows to navigate through them. Ctrl + dot is what VS has as shortcut for opening their smart tag, but you can override it by going to Tool | Options | Environment | Keyboard
. Then you can remove the shortcut Ctrl + . for the View.ShowSmartTag command and add it to JustCode.VisualAid. This way when pressing Ctrl + . you will show JustCode's smart tag.
I tested the other case you mention, namely writing someArray.ToList
(without parentheses) and trying to fix it. With and without JustCode, Visual Studio smart tag doesn't show up. You are right that JustCode needs the parentheses to be able to fix the problem and offer you to use some namespace. That's because if you don't have them we assume it's not a method but rather a property/field access and thus do the analysis bases on this assumption. This will greatly improve once we implement some smart intellisense that will allow you to choose the members you want to use even if the namespace is not in the using statements.
