Favorite Visual Studio 2005 feature of the day
I've had a lousy week, so I thought I'd spend a bit of time in VS 2005 to boost my spirits. I haven't done much in it since the early CTPs, and things have come a long way. I'm incredibly happy to see that a number of improvements center around simple time-savers. One of the first ones I ran into was this:Context menus on controls in the designer list all of their ancestors.
Can I get a "heck yea"?
Clicking on ancestor controls can be a real pain sometimes. The property browser's dropdown is helpful, but you need to have good names, otherwise you need to figure out if you're looking for "groupBox8" or "groupBox12". The context menu below is for a TextBox in groupBox3, which is in Panel2 of bottomSplitter and so on.
 To cap it off, I had a rather lengthy widom teeth pulling session today and the painkillers they gave me are only killing the pain. What's up with that?
