Rename feature in Visual Web Developer 2010/Visual Studio 2010
Visual web developer is great tool and I am playing more and more with it and every time I am discovering some new features of it. Recently I have discovered a very cool feature of it. I want to rename a variable in visual studio 2010 Web Developer express edition and I found a great refractor tool for that which will rename that variable in all the instance and all the methods. First you need to select variable which you want to rename and then you need to Right Click ->Refractor->Rename. You can also invoke that via its shortcut Ctrl + R,Ctrl +R and it will be available For reference see the below screenshot.
Once you click the rename which will have a dialog box open which will ask for new name or variable like following.
It is also having options for search in comments and search in string. Search in comment will search and replace in comment and search in string will replace word for any string which contains that variable name. Once you put new name in dialog box it will display a preview of replaced strings like following. Here also you can select where you need to rename and where you don’t want to rename and this is really cool. :)
