Introduction:

With Visual studio versions before 2015 we can not refer static classes in 'Using' statement. With C# 6.0 (Visual Studio 2015) we can use "using" to reference static classes. The advantage is to avoid repetitive method qualification. In order to understand better we will see sample example.

Example:

using System.Console;
using System.Math;
namespace DotNetMirror
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main()
        {
            WriteLine("static class can be referred in using statement");
            WriteLine(Pow(2, 3));
        }
    }
}
If you observe from above code we have not appended Console class to WriteLine method each time instead we referred in using statement. Same for Pow method.
