ReSharper 2020.2 Help

Select Containing Declarations


Control+Shift+OemOpenBrackets
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 Control+Shift+OemOpenBrackets. If necessary, press the shortcut again to select the whole type.
