Allows you to import a specific type and use the type's static members without qualifying them with the type name. This shows an example using static methods:

using static System.Console;

// ...

string GetName()
    WriteLine("Enter your name.");
    return ReadLine();

And this shows an example using static properties and methods:

using static System.Math;

namespace Geometry
    public class Circle
        public double Radius { get; set; };

        public double Area => PI * Pow(Radius, 2);
