Direct Support for Symbol Names

For some time, there have been on-line comments about compiler support for something like a "nameof" operator. Bascially, compiler information, such as names of properties, would be directly accessible in a strongly-typed/compiler-checked way. This is really handy for attributes which refer to properties, for data binding, and for a number of other scenarios.

If you've interested in this (and IMHO, you should be ;-) then follow this link to the MSDN forum and add your support by replying to this message thread.

You can also check out my earlier comments on the subject, which include links to other related pages.
