Visual D: old controls / design
June 13
Why does Visual D use the old icons in the completion box?
And why is the completion box control that outdated?
It would be quite nice to have those category-filtering options from VS2017.

The language service provides these images, they don't update automatically with VS.

What's outdated about it? apart form:

I searched the VS SDK, but didn't find a way to add these filtering options.

Is there any chance to get those images updated?

Please don't get me wrong. It isn't something specific that would be missing or different. It is just the overall experience: those old (and from nowadays view: unexpressive) icons, the missing filters - the completion box feels like a hosted VS2005 control.

I shouldn't be at all surprised if M$ forgot to add such an option.
