No class color syntax highlighting in TypeScript, in VS2015

I'm using Typescript in VS2015, and the color syntax highlighting fells broken, especially on class types.

For example, when defining this module:

child module

And using it:

parent module

The class name is long but colored.

But if I use an import statement to get a more usable class name, I get this:

parent module with bad highlighting

That isn't very readable...
I am doing something wrong?

Answer

Not 100% sure, but I think it should be. The fact is that the type is declared using the keyword "import" statement, so the analyzer considers variable as module rather than as a class, and therefore no highlights it.

But if you use the keyword "type", the class name will be highlighted
