Selecting Containing Declarations


Ctrl+Shift+[
ReSharper_SelectContainingDeclaration

While the Extend selection command allows you to make a precise selection of a word, statement or a code block, sometimes you just need to select the current member where your caret is or the whole type. ReSharper helps you do so with a single keystroke. To select the current member, press Ctrl+Shift+[. If necessary, press the shortcut again to select the whole type.
