CodeRush Xpress selection features

July 5th, 2010

CodeRush Xpress includes five intelligent features for selecting code more efficiently.

Camel Case Select

If you need to select one or more words from inside a camel-case identifier, just use the Shift key along with the Camel Case Nav keys (Alt+Shift+Left/Right).

Selection Increase

This is a command to increase the selection by logical blocks (Alt+Shift+=).

Selection Reduce

If you accidentally overshoot the block you want to select, you can reduce the selection by logical blocks using Alt+Shift+.

Smart Cut, Smart Copy

If you need to cut or copy an identifier to the clipboard, there’s no need to select it with CodeRush Xpress. Just place the caret on the identifier and press the cut or copy key (e.g., Ctrl+XShift+DeleteCtrl+C, or Ctrl+Insert).

Paste Replace

Once you have an identifier on the clipboard, you can move the caret to a different identifier and replace it with the one on the clipboard using Ctrl+B shortcut. This Paste Replace command will select the identifier at the caret before pasting in the contents of the clipboard.
