  • CodeRush for Roslyn (Preview), version 16.1.5

    We’re releasing this preview of CodeRush for Roslyn (CRR) a few weeks early, because we want to get feedback on a new configuration feature before we release. It’s the CodeRush Setup Wizard, and it’s available when you first start CodeRush.

    The Setup wizard guides you through important CodeRush configuration choices, and looks like this:

    SetupWizardNumKeys

    Each page has a Learn More link, which takes you to a video talking about the options on that page of the setup wizard.

    Running the setup wizard is optional, however we highly recommend it, even for experienced CodeRush developers, especially if you’re interested in optimizing your coding efficiency (e.g., getting more code with fewer keystrokes).

    You can bring up the Setup Wizard from the CodeRush menu.

    The CodeRush for Roslyn preview is available on the Visual Studio Gallery. Try it and let us know what you think.

  • CodeRush for Roslyn (Preview), version 16.1.4

    First, a quick update on where we are and how we got here: About a year ago I announced that the CodeRush team had been working on a new project, CodeRush for Roslyn. A new version of CodeRush that relied upon the Roslyn engine instead of our own parser. The architectural shift yielded two primary benefits:

    • Significantly Faster Performance:

      SolutionOpenTimes_5B02F3E5[1]

    • Significantly Lower Memory Use:

      MemoryUse_44DB2064[1]

    And developers are reporting similar results on twitter:

    SolutionOpenTimesCensored

    In the last year we’ve ported hundreds of features from CodeRush Classic, maintaining our focus and priority on faster performance and low memory use. During this time CodeRush for Roslyn (Preview) has been available as a free download from the Visual Studio Gallery, and we received valuable feedback from our customers. Thank you for that.

    In this release, version 16.1.4, we get a step closer to the first official release. In July we expect to make one more preview available, and shortly after that we expect to ship.

    Here are the new features in 16.1.4 (Preview):

    Target Picker

    Now you can quickly select the target location for new methods, events, properties, fields, and constants. Just press the up and down arrows to move the target picker up and down, and press Enter to declare at the specified location.

    TargetPicker

    Reference Filtering

    The Reference window now lets you optionally filter results by usage - Read, Write, or Instantiation:

    ReferenceFiltering

    Jump to Implementation

    Now you can jump to the implementation of ancestor overrides and implemented interfaces, available through the “Implemented API” option in the Jump To menu:

    JumpToImplementedAPI

    XAML Enhancements

    • The Optimize Namespace References refactoring is now available for XAML namespaces:

      Optimize
    • Templates for XAML are now shipping:

       XamlTemplates

    New Refactorings and Code Providers

    • Add Missing Constructors – Adds the default constructor and all constructors specified by parent types to the current class.
    • Add to Interface – Adds a member to an interface that is already implemented by the current class.
    • Declare Field/Property with Initializer – Generates a field of the appropriate type for the selected parameter.
    • Introduce Format Item – Creates a new String.Format item from a selected string part.
    • Move Declaration Near Reference – Moves a local variable declaration to the line of code that is closest to its first usage.
    • Move Initialization to Declaration – Combines separate variable declaration and initialization statements into a single statement.
    • Split Initialization From Declaration – Separates a single-statement variable declaration and initialization into two separate declaration and initialization statements. This refactoring is useful for conditional initialization, or when you want to widen the scope of the declaration.

    Other Improvements

    • The Code Issues window can now show Visual Studio code analysis results instantly without refreshing the list.
    • The Spell Checker now reports misspelled words in the Code Issues window.
    • You can now export your Roslyn settings and import settings from CodeRush Classic using the CodeRush | Support | Import and Export Settings… command.

    Try it Yourself

    Give CodeRush for Roslyn (Preview) a try. The preview edition is free. Let us know what you think, and what we can do to make the experience better.

  • CodeRush for Roslyn 1.0.11 (preview) is Available

    As we’re in the final stretch for the first official CodeRush for Roslyn release, today we offer what may be our final pre-release for you to test-drive. Here’s what’s new and improved in this version:

    Code Analysis

    In this version we introduce code analysis through the Code Issues window, showing potential logic errors and code smells found in the code. Just open your solution, bring up the Code Issues window, and click Refresh to analyze your code.

    CodeIssues

    Code Style

    Code Style gets an update with new options for:

    • Implicit/explicit declaration of local variables
    • Visibility modifiers (always specify or remove if possible)
    • Prefer CLR type name or language-specific keywords (e.g., int, string, bool)
    • Use this/me qualifier for members

    Styles are applied automatically when executing refactorings or expanding CodeRush templates. We have also linked the following code cleanup providers to the code style rules:

    • Apply variable declaration style
    • Apply built-in type style
    • Apply ‘this’ qualifier style
    • Apply visibility style

    And we’ve added new naming conventions for newly-declared identifiers.

    XAML Navigation

    Two new XAML navigation providers:

    • Go to Source – Opens the resource dictionary for the active reference when you press F12.
    • Find Usages – Helps you quickly navigate to a particular resource reference.

    JumpToXamlReference

    JumpToXamlLocations 

    Settings Import/Export

    In this version you can import/export your CodeRush for Roslyn settings.

    Test Sessions

    The Test Runner now supports multiple test sessions:

    Test Sessions

    This is a convenient way to group collections of related tests and run them independently. Just right-click on one of the test or fixture icons in the tree list and choose “Add to session”.

     

    Standalone Decompiler

    The Decompiler is now its own standalone executable, which means you can use the Decompiler outside of Visual Studio. The executable is located in the "Decompiler" folder inside the CodeRush for Roslyn Extension folder (which typically has a uniquely generated folder name). To find this folder quickly, from Visual Studio use the CodeRush | Support | Extension Folder... menu item.

    Decompiler

    Navigation

    Symbol and File navigation windows are more responsive. When they appear start typing for what you are looking for and they’ll populate with entries matching your filter.

    The navigation windows also include a few minor visual tweaks to improve clarity.

    CollectingItems

    Refactorings and Code Providers

    We have added the following refactorings and code providers:

    • Convert to Constant – convers a variable or field into a constant.
    • Create Backing Store – converts an auto-implemented property to a property that encapsulates a private field (the field backing store is created automatically).

    Organize Members now allows you to configure the amount of line breaks between groups and between members. In this release it is also possible to configure Organize Members so that it removes existing line breaks.

    Debug Visualizer

    The Expression Map has been ported from CodeRush Classic:

     ExpressionTree
    Also, strings containing long file paths are now trimmed so that the beginning and end of the path are always visible.

    IntelliRush

    • Argument insertion can now be disabled for method calls created by IntelliRush.
    • Optional parameters are no longer inserted into method calls.
    • Constructor overloads are now listed in the IntelliRush overloads menu:

    ConstructorOverloads

    Smart Semi-colon

    It’s finally here. The feature that gives C# developers the smallest gain, hundreds of times a day. With this C# feature enabled, CodeRush for Roslyn automatically places a semi-colon at the end of the expression when a semi-colon is manually typed inside an expression.

    Other Improvements

    • Code view sections in both the Decompiler and Code Coverage windows include line numbers.
    • Selection Embedding is now available from the “light bulb” menu, which can be invoked using the Ctrl+~ or Ctrl+. hotkeys.
    • The languages supported by Code Templates and Selection Embeddings has been extended. You can now define custom code templates and embeddings for XAML, XML, HTML, JavaScript, CSS and F# languages.
    • The CodeRush menu gains the following items:
      • Support
        • CodeRush Logs (used to quickly open the logs folder in Windows Explorer)
        • Extension Folder (used to quickly open the root extension folder in Windows Explorer)
      • Shortcuts (opens the shortcuts options page)
      • Code Templates (opens the code templates options page)

  • CodeRush for Roslyn Update – 1.0.10

    Today we discovered an important crash bug in CodeRush for Roslyn 1.0.9 that results in a stack overflow when editing XAML files when the Show Color feature is enabled (Show Color is disabled by default in version 1.0.9, so this crash bug will only affect you if you’ve turned the feature on and are editing XAML files).

    We have updated CodeRush for Roslyn on the Visual Studio Gallery to 1.0.10 which includes a fix for this issue.

    If you’re using CodeRush for Roslyn 1.0.9 we strongly recommend you upgrade to the latest version.

  • CodeRush for Roslyn 1.0.9 (preview) is Available

    In this release, we’ve added XAML features and improved the Test Runner, Code Coverage, Debug Visualizer, Navigation and Refactorings. You can get the latest CodeRush for Roslyn on the Visual Studio Gallery. The preview is free until we release, currently expected by the summer of 2016. Details on the new features are below.

    Unit Test Runner

    The CodeRush Unit Test Runner now supports NUnit 3.0 framework, and test execution output is now displayed in the Console output tab:

    TestRunnerConsoleOutput

    Code Coverage

    Code Coverage lets you filter displayed members using the Search Box:

    CodeCoverageSearch

    Navigation

    Four new features here. The References window now supports multiple tabs. Want to find all references for the symbol at the caret? Just click the green plus button to create a new tab and instantly fill it with all the references to the symbol.

    ReferencesTabs

    The second neat feature is improved interaction with CodeRush’s Jump To feature. Typically you use the Jump To feature to quickly find and get to a single location of interest. But what if you want to visit multiple locations across your session? Just press Ctrl+P to pin the results in the References window, or click the References button from the Jump To window, like this:

    JumpToReferencesButton

    This will instantly create and populate a new tab in the References window, filled with all the locations found by Jump To. Now these locations are in a single place and persist until you close the tab or close Visual Studio.

    The third new feature modifies the Jump To feature, allowing you to drill into decompiled code:

    DrillIntoCompiledCode

    And the fourth new navigation feature we’ve added is to bring CodeRush Classic’s Drop Marker Before Jump feature, which drops a marker automatically before you go away using the Visual Studio Edit.GoToDefinition command. This makes it easy to return to where you were (just press Escape to get back).

    XAML Language Support

    We’ve ported four XAML features over from CodeRush Classic: Break Apart Attributes, Line Up Attributes, Show Color (for showing and changing color references in XAML), and Import Type (to declare XAML namespace references for unresolved types).

    XamlRefactorings

    New Refactorings

    CodeRush for Roslyn adds a new refactoring: Rename Namespace to Match Folder Structure, which renames the namespace according to the project default namespace and the path to the source code file.

    And we improved Convert to String Interpolation. This refactoring is now available everywhere Use String.Format is, and is also aware of string formatting in calls to Debug.Print, Console.Write, Console.WriteLine and the StringBuilder.AppendFormat.

    Debug Visualizer

    We’ve added the Debug Toolbar, which lets you turn the Debug Visualizer on and off, control execution while ignoring breakpoints, step into the member at the caret position, and toggle temporary breakpoints.

    DebugVisualizerToolbar

    And we’ve improved the Debug Visualizer user interface to make preview expressions easier to read. In the two identical code samples below, you can see the UI from earlier versions (on top) compared to the improved version of the UI (below):

    DebugVisualizerImprovements

    Other Minor Improvements

    • Smart Constructor Template now allows you to initialize properties.
    • Code Cleanup and Organize Members features are now available from the CodeRush | Edit menu. 

      CodeRushCoverageMenuItems

    As always, we’re interested to know what you think. Download the latest version of CodeRush for Roslyn and give it a try. Thanks for your support and feedback.

  • CodeRush for Roslyn 1.0.8 (preview) is Available

    Team CodeRush continues its 45-day sprint cycles with today’s release of CodeRush for Roslyn 1.0.8. We’ve fixed bugs, improved performance, and reduced memory consumption. New features include:

    Paste as XAML/SVG

    Starting with version 1.0.8, CodeRush for Roslyn enables you to easily to incorporate vector graphics into your applications, with the new "Paste as XAML" and "Paste as SVG" code providers. Simply copy a graphic selection from a vector editing tool (such as Microsoft Visio®, Microsoft PowerPoint®, or Adobe Illustrator®) and then paste that vector drawing inside your XAML, or inside an HTML file as SVG.

    PasteAsXaml2

    Code Coverage

    CodeRush for Roslyn can now collect coverage information for CoreCLR test cases in the DNX environment.

    Decompiler

    The CodeRush Decompiler can now search for symbols across multiple assemblies simultaneously. Search progress across for assembly is individually visualized.


    DecompilerSearch 
     

    We have also improved the decompilation logic to produce code that is even easier to read. The CodeRush Decompiler now understands and builds code for:

    • Members explicitly implementing an interface
    • Constructor initializers
    • Events
    • Custom event accessors
    • Indexers

    Quick File Navigation

    Quick File Navigation is now faster and uses less memory.

  • What’s New in CodeRush for Roslyn (preview) 1.0.7

    CodeRush for Roslyn (preview) v1.0.7 is now available on the Visual Studio gallery.

    Here’s an overview of new and improved functionality in CodeRush for Roslyn (CRR):

    Unit Test Runner

    The Unit Test Runner now detects and runs unit tests for the MSTest framework. The Test Runner also runs CoreCLR test cases in the DNX environment.

    Structural Highlighting

    This release includes Structural Highlighting support for C#, Visual Basic and XAML. Structural Highlighting helps you easily see the structure of your code.

    Navigation Tools

    The Quick Nav and Quick File Nav features have been ported to CodeRush for Roslyn, so you can quickly find symbols and files throughout your solution.

    Refactorings

    The Refactorings Catalog options page is now available. This options page lists all refactorings and enables you to control the availability of each refactoring.

    Code Cleanup

    The Make properties auto-implemented code cleanup rule is now available.

    Code Coverage

    Now you can export code coverage statistics to XML, HMTL, and an NDepend-compatible format. CodeRush for Roslyn also now collects and presents coverage information for MSTest unit tests.

    Decompiler

    Decompiled code structure now more closely matches the original structure of the code (before it was compiled), and the Decompiler now automatically names variables based on their usage or type.

    Additionally, the following code structures are now supported:

    • for and foreach loops
    • using statements
    • auto-implemented properties
    • null-coalescing operators

    Give it a Try

    As always, you are encouraged to download the CodeRush for Roslyn preview and give it a try.

    Side note: One of the new CodeRush 15.2 features, Paste as XAML/SVG, did not make it into the CodeRush for Roslyn v1.0.7 release due to tight development constraints. Our intention is to release this feature in the next CodeRush for Roslyn update, v1.0.8.

    Earlier blog posts on CodeRush for Roslyn:

  • What’s New in CodeRush Classic 15.2

    CodeRush Classic (CRC) gets two new features in 15.2.

    Note that most of our development effort is currently directed toward CodeRush for Roslyn (CRR) which is driven by 45-day sprints between releases. We’ll talk about new features in CodeRush for Roslyn as those releases become available.

    In CodeRush Classic, we’ve found clever ways to improve the speed of Quick Nav, making it significantly more responsive.

    Also, CodeRush Classic gets two new features in this release:

    Code Coverage

    CodeRush classic gets Code Coverage, which tells you how much of your application is covered by test cases, which can be one indicator of overall code quality. This feature is also useful when maintaining code – you can get a clear picture of how safe it is to change methods or even individual lines of code. If the code you want to change is covered by test cases, it is safer to change that code (because the test cases covering the code you want to change increase the chances you’ll know immediately if you unintentionally break something).

    To see Code Coverage, you need to first run your tests from the CodeRush Unit Test Runner using one of the two orange test tube icons at the top:

     UnitTestRunner

    These icons run your tests so CodeRush watches for coverage.

    The orange test tube button with only a single green triangle ( RunSelectedTests ) shows coverage provided by only the selected tests.

    The orange test tube button with two green triangles ( RunAllTests  ) shows coverage provided by all your tests.

    Regardless of which button you press, after the test run is complete, CodeRush reports the results in the Code Coverage window, which looks like this:

     image

    The Code Coverage window provides a hierarchical view of the projects in your solution, and shows the code coverage results for each member, type, namespace or project. Results are summarized in the percent graphs on the right, showing the lines of code covered over the total lines of code.

    The Code Coverage window optionally shows you a code preview in a separate pane, shown in the screenshot above. Code highlighted in green is covered – that means at least one of the test cases resulted in that line of code being executed. Code with a gray background is not covered by the tests that were run.

    You can bring a method of interest to focus inside the Visual Studio editor by right-clicking that node in the tree view and choosing “Go to Method”.

    Paste as Xaml/Svg

    This is one of the more interesting features we’ve introduced in some time, and it’s for developers who are creating applications and web sites that need scalable graphics. Up until now, creating vector graphics for your applications has been relatively painful, especially if your team lacks a dedicated graphic designer. Existing vector graphic editors are either functionally weak or they require a sequence of tedious export/import steps to get those vector graphics from the graphic editor into Visual Studio.

    CodeRush Classic 15.2 solves this challenge rather elegantly, with the new Paste as Xaml/Svg code providers. Just design or open the graphic in your vector editor of choice (Microsoft® Visio, Microsoft® PowerPoint, Adobe® Illustrator, etc.), copy it to the clipboard, and then paste the graphic inside Visual Studio (inside a XAML file or an HTML file using Ctrl+V or Shift+Insert). CodeRush will convert the vector data on the clipboard into XAML or SVG automatically. You can also press the CodeRush key to bring up the CodeRush menu and choose Paste as Xaml or Paste as SVG.

    To be clear, here are the steps:

    1. Create or open your vector shape in the vector editor of your choice: 
    VectorPowerPoint
    For example, I used PowerPoint to create the gear shown above by forming a union with four rounded rectangles and a circle, and then subtracting a circular hole from the center (you can create this custom shape in PowerPoint in about 45 seconds – it’s that easy).

    2. Copy your custom shape to the clipboard.

    3. Paste into the XAML code or into an HTML file inside Visual Studio:

    PasteAsXaml 

    Of course, you can adjust properties after the paste, such as height/width, fill, stroke, etc.

    Here’s the same gear that I created in PowerPoint pasted inside Visual Studio as SVG (and then copied and pasted here into this post):

    <svg height="352px" width="351px" viewBox="0 0 351 352">

    So now it’s easy to create your own custom vector graphics and use them inside your XAML applications and web sites.

    As always, let us know what you think.

        Also, if you work with a non-U.S. keyboard, check the bindings and redefine them if needed to correspond with the keys you press for the left and right parentheses, and the “!” character.

      • New for Refactorings and Code Providers:
        • Declare Constant - declares a constant for the primitive value at the caret.
        • Introduce Setter Guard Clause - introduces a value-changed check at the start of a property setter, exiting early if the assigned value matches what is already in the backing store.
        • Optimize Namespace References gets a new options page, letting you specify sorting options. You can also use this page to specify which references should be never removed even when they aren’t used.

        • Rename File to Match Type - renames the file (and updates the project), so the file name matches the type name.

          • Improved support for code providers declaring classes and members.
          • Add Parameter
          • Declare Method
        • New refactorings for C#:
          • Collapse Property - collapses a property with backing store to a single line if its accessors are empty or contain a single one-line statement.
          • Collapse Accessor - Collapses an accessor to a single line if it is empty or contains a single one-line statement.
          • Collapse Method - collapses a method to a single line if its body is empty or contains a single one-line statement.
          • Expand Property - expands a property, placing its getter and setter on separate lines.

    • CodeRush for Roslyn, v1.0.5

      The CodeRush team, continuing its 45-day or less release pace, is ready to bring you the latest update to CodeRush for Roslyn, version 1.0.5.

      Our previous release, CodeRush for Roslyn v1.0.4, included new refactorings, code providers, text commands, and test runner and code coverage support. You can download the latest version of CodeRush for Roslyn from the Visual Studio Gallery.

      Zero Bug Policy

      The team has a zero-bug policy, which essentially means we resolve all reported issues before we write new features. And so in this release, v1.0.5, we’ve prioritized quality and performance over new/ported functionality, resolving over 200 issues, including:

      • Templates:
        • Expansions in split views
        • Corrected context to prevent unintended expansions inside XML doc comments and interpolated strings
        • Corrected a number of template expansion issues in Visual Basic
      • Exceptions when editing code
      • Performance issues:
        • Toggle Comment
        • Test Runner in large files with a huge number of test cases
      • An edge case out-of-memory exception
      • Edge case deadlocks on solution open/close and Test Runner build
      • Edge case crashes (when rename is invoked in navigation link, or when double-clicking tests in the Test Runner)

      Other feature areas receiving improvements in this release:

      • Code Cleanup
      • Code Coverage
      • Code Providers
      • IntelliRush
      • Linked Identifiers
      • Refactorings
      • References tool window
      • Shortcuts
      • Tab to Next Reference
      • Text Fields
      • Test Runner

      We also added hundreds of test cases to help ensure these issues never appear again.

      New in v1.0.5:

      We added the following new features in v1.0.5:

      • CodeRush now updates test run progress on the Windows taskbar.

        TestRunnerProgressOnTaskBar 
      • The Test Runner filter now shows the full path to each test, so you can easily find the test you are looking for even if you have tests with identical names in different test fixtures.
      • We added the "Add Else Statement" and “Declare Interface” code providers.
      • Smart Constructor, Declare Class, Declare Property, and Declare Property (with field) are now available for Visual Basic developers.
