A tool to eliminate Case-sensitivity in C#?

I'm a VB.net programmer, and I'm about to start working
with two C++ programmers and teach them .net.

I've decided to use C# in teaching them, since it's
similar enough to VB.net that I can read and write it, and
it's what's most familiar to them.

My major problem with C#, however, is its case-
sensitivity. I've heard people talk about how wonderful
it is until they're blue in the face, but the fact stands
that I'm lazy, and I guess so many years of VB has
accustomed me to not having to type anything but
declarations in capital letters.

So my question is: is there a tool or macro for C# that
will eliminate its case-sensitivity? I googled all sorts
of phrases, but all to no avail...

Thanks,

Short answer: Shift-Space (Code-Completion) ist a really great (and cheap)
tool ;-)

I don't think such a thing could work safely in most instances b/c by C#'s
very nature, it's case sensitive and the next time you opened a project in
VS.NET where the programmer used for example, lowercase for private class
variables and uppercase for Properties, it'd give you some serious
headaches. You could write an add-in to do it as you typed , but making
something like that commercially would be a lot of trouble b/c of the way
many programmers in C languages use case sensitivity to their advantage.
This probably isn't that helpful to your problem, but you may find it
interesting ...

Absolutely, but it doesn't work until you've typed the
first word of the statement, whatever it is. It's that
first word that's the biggest problem; after I type System
with a capital S, I can get to whatever I need...it's just
remembering to that fools me. :)
