Cool Resharper Features Part-2

This post will be part-2 of first post Cool Resharper Features Part-1. In this post we are also going to learn some other cool features that resharper is providing. Following are some of features that resharper is providing.

1) Move to another file to match type name:

This feature makes you very productive when you need to create a new class. Suppose with normal visual studio you need to create a new class with new file then you need to do via file menu –> Add new item and then select class. Here you can do very easily without having all this stuff. Just write you class after class in any .cs file like below.

Movetoanother filetomatchtypename

In above image you can see that I have created a employee class. Now when you put a cursor on employee class name resharper will open a popup or you can press ALT + R and it will open a popup like this.

Movetoanother filetomatchtypename2

And once you click on this it will create a file name with Employee.cs and move class code to that file.

Movetoanother filetomatchtypename3

2) Extract Interface(Refactor Menu):

This features comes quite handy when you are working with interfaces. Here you can have interface extracted from class. Let’s take same example of employee class. Now I am pressing Ctrl-Shift-R to open refactor menu.


Now once you click on this.It will open a popup with some options like following.


Here it will ask for Interface name, Where we want to move and what member we need to create once you click. There also button given to select all public or dependent member.Once you select print click on next it will extract a interface in new file like following.


Here for demo purpose I have not selected move to another file so that I can show both class and interface implementation but you could create a new file also with the same class.

3) Go To Implementation:

If we are using interfaces and we want to find a interface is implemented in how many class or we want to find the class which implement this interface this feature becomes quite handy. There are some other use of this feature also here it’s very productive.

For example, I want to find which class has implementation of IEmployee interface as above example then I need right click and select “Go To Implementation” or I can directly do with shortcut Ctrl + Shift + Alt + B.
Once you right click a menu appears like following.


Once you click on this. It will navigate to Employee class which implements this interface.


That’s it. Hope you like I will post some other features of resharper in my future posts.Stay tuned for more.. Smile

Cool Resharper features part -1

I have been using Jetbrain’s resharper since last four years and it’s been my default Visual Studio plugin for visual studio. After this much of experience of resharper I must say if resharper is not there I would not have that much productive with visual studio. Working with it is a pleasure. I this post I am going to explain some cool resharper features.

Resharper uses two keyboard schemes Visual Studio or Intelli IDEA scheme. In this post I am going to use Intelli IDEA scheme. The only difference between two key map scheme is keyboard shortcut. Some Visual Studio short cut will be override by Resharper.

1) ALT + Enter:

It’s a magic key for resharper you can have any feature with ALT+ Enter whether its refactoring, code completion or anything. You can use ALT + Enter for anything. For example you have some name space un used and you want to remove namespace just press ALT + Enter and it will have popup like following.


Once you click on this and it will remove unused namespace. Same way I have a class called Student Repository and I have one private variable which I want to initialize with constructor then I just need to press ALT+ Enter on that line and it will open a popup like following.


Once you click on Initialize field from constructor(s) parameter and it will create a code like following.


2) GO to Type:

This is an awesome feature of navigation. You can have either from resharper menu->Navigation GO to Type or you can have Ctrl + N short cut for intelli IDEA scheme. Once you click it will open a popup and whatever you type it find matching list of type and once you click on type you will be there.


3) Find Usage:

This is also an awesome feature for finding usage of particular type or variable. You can right click any type and click on find usage or you have short cut key ALT + f7.


Once you click on Find Usage it will list all load all the find result and you click on any one and you can go to there file.


3) Smart symbol completion:

When you use Ctrl + Space it will suggest you the option to complete symbol and save lots of keyboard stroke.


4) Smart code selection:

With Ctrl + W you can select current type and again you press Ctrl + W it will select line and again you press Ctrl + W you can select method.

That’s it. This are some feature that I am using I will have more feature list in forth coming posts. Hope you like it. Stay tuned for more.Smile
