April 19th, 2011 Comments off

The Duplicate Line CodeRush feature intelligently creates a copy of an existing line of code, allowing you to easily modify it. If the code line is recognized as a predefined pattern, the line is copied and a portion of it is selected for further modification. Note that some code line bits can be modified automatically for you as well.

The predefined duplication patterns are configurable. They are stored and presented as regular expressions that contain one or several DXCore built-in reg-ex aliases for easy understanding.

However, there an option to copy-paste the entire line of the text if no matches are found when the feature is performed. All available options are listed later.
