Namespace finder

Hi,

Sometimes searching for a .NET solution I can find appropriate VB.NET code on the Internet which would do the job. The trouble is that many times the articles do not mention anything about the namespaces needed to import in order to use a specific method/function used in the articles' code samples.
Hence, it takes time to guess what the namespace for a specific function is which is very frustrating.

Is there any online tools or perhaps some tool included in Visual Studio .NET 2003 which allows one to search for the namespace of a given function/method?

Thanks!

You can use MSDN or google:

Search for the class and put msdn in the search field. 99% of the time you get a direct link to the class in MSDN. On the bottom of the description it says what namespace it belongs to.

"classX msdn" -> search

You can also use the MSDN help files that you install with VS2003.
