Bring back the Code Definition Window in Visual Studio Express

The Code Definition Window is no longer available in the Express version of Visual Studio 2012; bad idea - if anything, Microsoft should be adding features to the free version of their IDE, not removing them.

This is not the kind of feature that can be thought of as 'professional only' or 'enterprise only'; it's a basic development aid, and it's available in other free IDEs (since before it appeared in VS, actually).

If Microsoft wants to maintain their relevance in the IDE space, and win developers over to the new Store and mobile platforms, crippling the free version is not the way to go.

    Thanks for taking the time to share this suggestion. This item has been around for a couple of versions of Visual Studio and we haven’t acted on it. Looking at the VS “15” plans, we’re not going to take action on this item, so we’re going to close it. If the suggestion is still relevant, please either take a look to see if there’s another suggestion that’s similar that you can vote on, or open a new suggestion.
