Vertical Select in Visual Studio .NET to get rid of System.Web.UI.WebControls

Don’t know where I got this, but a cool shortcut in Visual Studio to vertically select text is to hold down the Alt Key while selecting a region.

I especially use this to get rid of the System.Web.UI.WebControls in the declaration of a page:


protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox FirstName;
protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox MiddleInitial;
protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox LastName;
protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox SSN;
protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox DOB;
protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox FaxNumber;
protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.DropDownList DriverLicenseState;
protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox DriverLicenseNumber;
		

to


protected TextBox FirstName;
protected TextBox MiddleInitial;
protected TextBox LastName;
protected TextBox SSN;
protected TextBox DOB;
protected TextBox FaxNumber;
protected DropDownList DriverLicenseState;
protected TextBox DriverLicenseNumber;

I just hate all that garbage in my declarations. Even if I can hide it with regions.
