Refactorings for anonymous types

September 27th, 2011 Comments off

Anonymous types are type declarations that are generated automatically by the compiler without having to explicitly declare it. They provide a convenient way to encapsulate several read-only properties into a single object that is not declared in the code. Anonymous types are supported by C# and Visual Basic programming languages starting from Visual Studio 2008.

Code Generation – Create Descendant and Create Descendant (with virtual overrides)

June 30th, 2011 2 comments

The Create Descendant code provider shipped in CodeRush generates a descendant class for the active class, providing overrides for abstract members, if any. The second version of the code provider named Create Descendant (with virtual overrides), in addition to the Create Descendant, adds overrides for virtual members into a descendant class.

Code Generation – Create Ancestor

June 29th, 2011 4 comments

The Create Ancestor code provider generates a new base class declaration for the active class. The generated base class will be declared above the active class and the active class becomes a descendant of the new base class. The new base class has the same visibility as the active class and contains the default public parameterless constructor. All identifiers and references of the base class are linked together for easy renaming.

Code Generation – Declare Interface

June 29th, 2011 Comments off

The Declare Interface code provider generates a new definition of an interface and adds interface referenced members to it, if any. The declaring provider is available on an undeclared type reference, that starts with an upper-case letter I, e.g. ILogger.

Refactorings – Convert to Point

June 28th, 2011 Comments off

The Convert to Point refactoring is based on the Introduce Parameter Object refactoring with the difference that it doesn’t create a new object for parameters. Instead, it uses a ‘Point’ structure when there is a pair of two numeric parameters of a method definition are selected.

Refactorings – Move Type to File

January 19th, 2011 Comments off

The Move Type To File refactoring allows users to move a given class, structure, interface, enumeration or delegate to a separate file. It is available when there are two or more types in the current source file.

Refactoring moves a type with a name that differs from the file name to a new source file. All comments, attributes, and XML doc comments relating to the type are moved with the type. The file will be located in the same folder as the current file and automatically added to the project. The name of the new file is based on the type’s name on which refactoring is applied.

Code Providers – Seal Class

January 16th, 2011 1 comment

This is one of the simplest code provider operations which simply marks the active class as ‘sealed’ (CSharp) or ‘NotInheritable‘ (Visual Basic). The sealed modifier is used to prevent inheriting from a class. For example, this can be useful when creating ‘helper’ classes containing utility methods that should never be extended by overriding the existing functionality. Another benefit of this code provider is that it enables a hypothetical run-time optimization, because having a sealed class known to never have any derivations; it is possible for the compiler to transform virtual function member invocations into non-virtual which take less time to perform.

Code Gen – Declare Struct

November 5th, 2010 Comments off

Declare Struct code provider generates a structure for the current type reference to a non-existent type. If the type reference on the editor caret creates a new instance of a non-existent type that takes some arguments, the appropriate constructor is generated for the new structure:
