Force navigation features to select first alphabetical match

The Open File in Solution dialog and the List Methods in File drop-down consider recently accessed items to determine a selection when filtering. The policy lets one visit successive items easily.

Set the registry if you prefer that Visual Assist always pre-select the first alphabetical match of a filtered list.

HKCU\Software\Whole Tomato\Visual Assist X\<IDE spec>\SelectRecentItemsInNavigationDialogs = 00

Set the value to 01 to restore default behavior.

Visual Assist build 2094 and older

Create the following STRING value:

HKCU\Software\Whole Tomato\Visual Assist X\SelectRecentItemsInNavigationDialogs = "No"

Delete the entry to restore default behavior.
