CodeRush - What's New in Older Versions

What's New in v17.2.4

XML Support

The following features support XML markup language now:

Visualization Tools

The Right Margin Line can help you keep code lines from getting too long or exceeding style guidelines. The margin serves as a visual indicator showing lines that have overrun the specified line length.

DevExpress | CodeRush

You can enable the right margin line using the new button (on the CodeRush Visualize toolbar) and configure it in the CodeRush Options dialog on the Editor | All Languages | Right Margin Line page.

DevExpress | CodeRush

Code Analysis

Code Metrics can now establish a Threshold value that determines when the metric appears and when/if the metric contributes to code analysis. This allows code analysis to report type members that exceed your specified complexity thresholds.

DevExpress | CodeRush

Code Formatting

C# Document Formatting adds the following options:

  • Wrapping and Spacing configuration for the "??" operator.
  • Wrapping and Spacing configuration for the base types list .
  • Wrapping and Spacing configuration for the constructor initializer .

    DevExpress | CodeRush

  • Excessive Line Breaks Removal.

    DevExpress | CodeRush

Unit Testing

The JavaScript Test Runner is out of beta and you can now run & debug tests for client-side JavaScript code using the powerful CodeRush Test Runner.

DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

Our JavaScript test runner is based on Karma and supports the following testing frameworks:

If you don't use Karma, we also support unit tests linked to the tested code using triple-slash reference directives or a Chutzpah configuration file.

Learn more about the CodeRush Test Runner here.

Code Analysis

  • NullReferenceException Analysis is now available in Visual Basic . This feature identifies unprotected code that may unexpectedly raise NullReferenceExceptions.

    Note that this feature is still in beta . You can enable/disable this feature on the Static Code Analysis options page:

DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

  • We have added the following static analyzers focused on best practices for async and await :

    • Async method has no CancellationToken parameter.
    • CancellationToken parameter is never used.
    • Async void method should be in a try/catch block. Otherwise, that method's exceptions may cause a crash.
    • ConfigureAwait(true) is called implicitly. ConfigureAwait() should always be explicitly called, as the default behavior may cause a deadlock.
    • Redundant 'await'.
    • The 'await' keyword for the Task.FromResult expression is not required.
    • The returned Task is null. Use 'Task.FromResult()' instead.
    • Task.When is used in an async method. Use Task.Wait instead.
    • The 'await' expression is missing a cancellation token.

Code Cleanup

We have added the ability to remove unused assembly references from your projects, accessible through the project's right-click context menu:

DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

Selecting this command will bring up a confirmation window where you can select which references to remove (from the list of unused references).

DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

Code Formatting

Document Formatting receives the following improvements:

  • Blank lines — now blank lines for the first and last items in a list of elements are omitted. Blank lines are only added between elements.
  • Bitwise operators (&, |, and ^) — now have individual wrapping and spacing options for each operator.
  • Relational operators (==, !=, <, >, <=, and >=) — also have configurable wrapping and spacing settings.
  • Regions — we have added blank line configuration options for #region directives.
  • Wrap First — we have added the "Wrap First" option for assignment expressions.

DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

Unit Testing

  • CodeRush Test Runner now supports Microsoft Fakes isolation framework.

    It helps you mock the code you are testing by replacing parts of your application with the small pieces of code under the control of your tests.

    DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

    Note: Microsoft Fakes framework is available only in the Enterprise version of Visual Studio IDE.

  • The Code Coverage Filtering has been improved. You can now filter the report, not only by name and percentage, but also by node kind . For example, you can create a filter that only shows methods with test coverage between 1% and 40%, like this:

    DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

CodeRush for Roslyn

.NET Core 2.0 Support

  • You can now use the CodeRush for Roslyn Unit Test Runner to run .NET Core 2.0 tests and calculate Code Coverage in Portable PDB debug-symbols-format projects.

  • Unit Test Runner is now even faster when running .NET Core test cases.

Code Formatting

  • We have added a new code formatting feature that enables you to specify spacing options in your code.

    CodeRush for Roslyn Spacing options allow you to add or omit spaces around virtually every part of code. It is more flexible than the built-in Visual Studio code formatting options. Spacing style is applied using Code Cleanup.

    DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

  • We have improved XAML Formatting with the ability to format markup extensions . You can now use the following options:

    • Break arguments apart only if they exceed the specified number. You can set a threshold argument count to determine whether argument splitting occurs, as well as a maximum number of arguments per line.
    • Align markup extension arguments with first argument.

    DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

Code Analysis

This release includes a beta version of a new feature we've been working on, NullReferenceException Analysis . This feature identifies unprotected code that may unintentionally raise NullReferenceExceptions.

Null-reference exceptions often occur in edge-case scenarios, and tend to remain undetected even after publishing your software. These bugs are challenging for developers to find and are often discovered by customers after your app has shipped .

CodeRush for Roslyn now identifies code that may be at risk to raising a NullReferenceException. You can turn this feature on for C# (it is disabled by default ) on the Editor | All Languages | Static Code Analysis options page:

DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

We encourage you to turn this feature on and let us know what you think.

Refactorings and Code Providers

We have added a new Add XML Comments Code Provider. Using it you can instantly add an XML doc comment to a member.

If you use Add XML Comments for a member that is an override or an interface implementation, the XML doc comment is based on the documentation found in the interface or ancestor class. If the target method has no base method or its base method or interface declaration has no XML comment, the code provider generates an empty XML comment with the correct structure.

DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

  • T547901 - Unit Testing - 'Go to Class' doesn't work for Paramaterized Test Fixtures

What's New in v17.1.7

CodeRush for Roslyn

Code Coverage

  • You can now exclude specific projects from Code Coverage analysis using the *.runsettings file. For details refer to Microsoft's article, Customizing Code Coverage Analysis.

    DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

  • You can now create and apply Filters to the Code Coverage report. For example, you can create a filter that only shows members with less than 70% coverage.

    DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

Code Analysis - Unused Members

We have added a new analyzer that detects unused members .

DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

You can also configure the highlighting of such members in the code editor ( Editor | All Languages | Static Code Analysis | Highlight unused members ).

DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

The unused members can be safely deleted and this won't affect program behavior.

Refactorings and Code Providers

The Use string.Format refactoring is now available on interpolated strings .

Project-wide Code Cleanup (Preview)

You can now run Code Cleanup for the entire project . Simply right-click the project you want to clean in the Solution Explorer and select Cleanup Project from the context menu.

DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

While the project is cleaned, a progress window is displayed.

DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

If code cleanup is cancelled while it is still in progress, the code will remain unchanged.

Note: This feature is in a preview state, and may break or change the behavior of your code. You can undo the entire operation using the Visual Studio's Undo action (available only when any changed document is open).

What's New in v17.1.6

CodeRush for Roslyn

Code Formatting

We have implemented new formatting rules related to wrapping code (and aligning subsequent wrapped lines) for the following language elements (when they exceed the specified margin):

  • Ternary Expression
  • LINQ Expression
  • Binary Expression
  • Assignment Expression
  • Logical Expression
  • Parameters
  • Arguments
  • Array Initializer
  • Collection Initializer
  • Object Initializer
  • Chained Method Calls
  • Lambda Expression
  • Expression Body

DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

These formatting options are applied as part of the Format Document rule, which can be optionally part of Code Cleanup. You can specify which rules are applied on the Code Cleanup options page.

DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

You can also bind the FormatDocument command to a shortcut and use it to invoke the Format Document separately from Code Cleanup .

Code Analysis

We have added several new features to Spell Checker . We can now:

  • Check XML comments (<c> and <code> tags are ignored).
  • Check File names .
  • Exclude ToString() expressions.
  • Properly handle Microsoft.Naming suppressions. The Spell Checker now ignores words suppressed using the SuppressMessage attribute for CA1704 and CA1709 issues.

We have also added a new toolbar button to toggle the Spell Checker on and off.

DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

Code Style

  • You can now set your preferred order for member modifiers. CodeRush for Roslyn features maintain it when adding or removing modifiers. For instance, you can set public and private modifiers to be placed before static . This feature is available for C# only, because Visual Studio automatically sorts modifiers in Visual Basic.

  • We are now synchronizing Code Style settings with Visual Studio's similar code style settings. The following settings are now synchronized between CodeRush and Visual Studio:

    • Local Declaration Style
    • Built-in Type Names
    • this / Me Qualifier Usage

    If you change any of these settings in Visual Studio, the corresponding settings in CodeRush will be updated to match your changes (going back and changing the CodeRush settings will not alter Visual Studio settings).

  • We have added the new Attribute list Code Style & Code Cleanup rule, allowing you to combine two or more attributes when they are applied to a single member.

DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

Refactorings and Code Providers

We have improved the ForEach to Linq refactoring so it generates cleaner code in complex cases. The following Linq functions are now supported by the query generator: Where, Select, Cast, Distinct, FirstOrDefault, LastOrDefault, Aggregate, Any, All, and Count.

DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

Move Member to Region

We have ported the Move Member to Region feature from CodeRush Classic. You can now create regions and move members among them using a simple GUI. Now simply click a member icon, select Move To Region and choose the target region.

CodeRush for Roslyn

Advanced Code Generation

This release introduces the Declare menu, a quick and easy way to add needed code to your types. These declarations are now available:

  • Automatic Constructor generation (which also automatically initializes selected members).
  • Delegate Members is useful when you want to surface a field's or property's members to this parenting type. Creates members that wrap around the contained field's or property's members. For example, if your type contains a generic List of strings (as a field or property), you can wrap that List's Count property in its own property, surfacing it in your type.
  • IDisposable Implementation generates the Dispose pattern, disposing the specified fields and properties.
  • Equality Members generates two Equals methods and a GetHashCode override.
  • Override Members overrides virtual and abstract methods (e.g. GetHashCode ).
  • Properties and Read-only Properties generate properties for the selected fields.
  • Comparison Members generates a CompareTo implementation, individually comparing the specified fields, and optionally implements the IComparable<T> and IComparable interfaces.
  • Missing Members implements any interface members missing from the active class.
  • Partial Methods implements any partial methods missing from the active class.
  • ToString Override .

  • Encapsulate Property wraps selected field properties (declared by the field's type) in new properties declared in the active class/struct.

Unit Testing

In this release, we're introducing the beta version of the Jasmine Test Runner for JavaScript and TypeScript. This feature, in its current state, should be considered a technical preview, but you can already run Jasmine tests with it using the CodeRush Test Runner window. This beta works with the following restrictions:   - Test discovery is not implemented yet. Every file with unit tests should reference the Jasmine framework (e.g., contain the following string at the beginning: "/// <reference path='path/to/jasmine.js' />"). - Currently all of the project's JS files will appear in the Test Runner. You can Ctrl+click to multi-select the test files you want to run, or you can right-click a file and add it to a new or existing Test Runner session , allowing you to easily run all tests in all files held by that session at once. - Test Debugging and Code Coverage are not yet implemented.

DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

This beta feature is disabled by default , however you can enable it using the Unit Testing | Test Runner options page.

C# 7 and VB 15 Syntax Support

  • We have added support for the new language features to the Debug Visualizer , including support for the new switch capabilities.

    DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

  • Smart Duplicate Line now supports the new language features, including binary literals and digit separators.

    DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

  • Expand Method , Expand Property , Expand Getter and Expand Setter refactorings all now support the new language features.

Other improvements

  • We have implemented asynchronous extension loading , allowing CodeRush for Roslyn to load even faster.

  • Paste Replace Word (default shortcut is Ctrl + B ) is now available in XAML markup.

What's New in v16.2.7

CodeRush for Roslyn

Code Style

We have added a new Code Style rule for placing new Namespace reference imports/using declarations . You can now choose one of three styles: use fully qualified type names, place new imports/using references at the top of the file, or place new imports/using statements inside the active namespace.

DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

New Features for XAML

We have added two new refactorings: Convert Nested Element to Attribute and Convert Attribute to Nested Element . Using them, you can extract an attribute from a XAML tag and make it a child element. You can also perform the reverse operation — inline a child element as an attribute of the parent tag. This refactoring can increase XAML readability when there are excessive attributes or when the nesting level gets too deep.

DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

C# 7 Syntax Support

  • The Expand\Compress Ternary refactorings now support C# 7 syntax.
  • Smart Return ('r' template) now supports C# 7 syntax.
  • Declare Providers also support C# 7 syntax.
  • The Use Expression Body refactoring now works on constructors , destructors , getters and setters .

Refactorings and Code Providers

  • Move Type to Namespace and Extract String to Resource refactorings are now more organized and easier to execute with the new Code Actions Sub-menu .

    DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

  • We have added two new Code Providers: Introduce Change Notification and Convert to Property with Change Notification . These code providers will help you implement the INotifyPropertyChanged interface for the active property.

    DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

Other Improvements

  • To simplify the installation experience, we now provide CodeRush for Roslyn installer designed to install the extension to all supported IDE versions at once. It is accessible through the Download Manager.

What's New in v16.2.5

CodeRush for Roslyn

Code Analysis

We have added the Code Metrics feature. Code metrics measure code complexity. You can now place code metric values in the editor to the left of member declarations, so you can immediately spot problem code members.

DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

Three code metrics are currently available out of the box: Maintenance Complexity , Cyclomatic Complexity , and Line Count . This list will be extended with future releases.

Naming Assistance

We have added a brand-new feature called the Naming Assistant . It makes naming new members, variables, and parameters easier.

DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

The Naming Assistant window automatically opens when you start typing a new symbol name. It holds a list of suggestions, which is filtered as you type.

This symbol name suggestion list is generated from:

  • Identifier names used in the solution and in the current code block
  • The identifier type
  • The identifier role (member, variable, or parameter)

Simply press the up and down arrows to select a suggestion, and then press Enter to accept the selected symbol name.

Decompiler

We have improved the Decompiler output to make it more readable. The following changes were made:

  • Anonymous methods now appear inline.
  • Nullable types use modifiers ( int? instead of Nullable<int> ).
  • XML documentation comments now appear in decompiled code.

Navigation

  • We have added a fast and easy way to navigate to code from the References Window . While the window is open, press the F8 key to jump to the next item and press Shift + F8 to jump to the previous item.

  • You can now use the Jump To dialog to navigate through currently open files.

Refactorings

  • We have added the Move Type to Namespace refactoring, which instantly changes the namespace of the active type.

  • The Introduce Using Statement refactoring replaces object creation and dispose code blocks with a using statement. This improves code readability and ensures the locally used objects are properly disposed.

    DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

Visualization Tools

  • We have added the Region Painting feature, which adds low-contrast visual representation of #region directives, reducing visual noise where regions are used.

    DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

Other improvements

  • You can now highlight errors and warnings in the Output window , making it easier to recognize important messages faster.

    DevExpress | CodeRush for Roslyn

  • The Smart Duplicate Line feature includes the following improvements:

    • When duplicating items in collection initializers and in parameter lists, a comma is added automatically.
    • You can now disable the "smart" part of the Smart Duplicate Line feature so that it simply duplicates the line of code as is.

What's New in v16.2.3

CodeRush for Roslyn

Refactorings and Code Providers

  • Convert to Function - Allows you to easily convert a method that returns void into a function that returns the appropriate type (matching the type of the expression returned). CodeRush For Roslyn | DevExpress
  • Convert to Procedure – This code provider is the opposite of Convert to Function . It converts a method that returns a value of any type to a proc that returns void (or a Sub in VB).
  • Extract Interface – This refactoring creates an interface based on the public members of the active class, and modifies the active class so it implements the extracted interface. CodeRush For Roslyn | DevExpress
  • Widen Scope (promote to field) - Use this to move a local variable declaration from inside a method body out to become a private field of the parenting class. CodeRush For Roslyn | DevExpress

Stop on Build Error

You can now configure CodeRush for Roslyn to stop building a solution if project building fails and an attempt to build a dependent project is made. CodeRush For Roslyn | DevExpress

    • Duplicate Line recognizes camel case parts of an identifier name and create links between similar parts of different identifiers. CodeRush For Roslyn | DevExpress
    • Duplicate Line recognizes enum element references and automatically cycles through those elements (if a pattern of enum element cycling is detected in the surrounding code). CodeRush For Roslyn | DevExpress
    • If Duplicate Line cannot recognize any pattern, it creates a text field around each identifier and literal in duplicated line.

Other improvements

  • Navigation features now support XAML bindings.
  • Now items in Code Actions Menu related to Spell Checker and a number of Code Providers are displayed in submenus.

What's New in v16.1.8

CodeRush for Roslyn

New Features for XAML

  • XAML Code Formatting CodeRush For Roslyn | DevExpress
  • Import All Types code provider – declares all namespace references used in the XAML file. CodeRush For Roslyn | DevExpress

Refactorings, Code Providers and Code Formatters

  • Break Apart or Line Up both Parameters and Arguments – either collapses a list of method parameters or passed-in arguments into a single line, or breaks them apart into separate lines (one for each parameter or argument).
  • Remove Type Qualifier – removes the explicit namespace definition from symbol usage and adds the corresponding namespace reference to the file's using/imports list. You can use it on a single identifier , on all identifiers in the current file, or as a code cleanup rule.
  • Decompose Parameter – changes the method signature in order to improve encapsulation, allowing you to pass in only the part or parts of the parameter instead of the parameter itself. This refactoring often helps in promoting reuse by reducing the complexity of the objects needed to call a method.
    For example, if a method accepts a Person instance but only references that Person's Age property (see IsAdult in the screenshot below), Decompose Parameter will change that method and update all calling sites, so only the Age is passed in. CodeRush For Roslyn | DevExpress
  • Extract String to Resource – Adds a string literal to an existing RESX file (creating the new RESX if necessary), and replaces the string with the resource link. You can also optionally extract all string literals within a method or accessor.
  • Declare Parameter – Adds the selected identifier to the method signature and updates all usages.

Unit Testing

Now, the Code Coverage feature supports .NET Core test cases.

Other Improvements

  • The Duplicate Line feature is now called Smart Duplicate Line . Now it watches and learns from your changes to improve the duplicate line experience, creating text fields for the parts of the line we expect you to change, and automatically incrementing integer values if we detect an incrementing pattern.
  • We have improved and redesigned the options page structure . Now features are grouped by language, and include brief descriptions with links to further documentation. For some pages, configuration options which are less likely to be changed are hidden in the Advanced tab, located in the upper right of the options page.
  • Also, navigation features in the editor have received a UI improvement, enhancing clarity for selected filtering options in the Jump to Symbol menu.
