  • CodeRush Template Deep Dive Wrap Up

    Here's the source code and an export of the templates folder Rory and I created today for the CodeRush Template Deep Dive. The session was indeed deep and intense. We hope you enjoyed it and found the information useful.

  • CodeRush Template Deep Dive - Thursday 10am PDT, 17:00 GMT

    This webinar will provide a brief overview of existing CodeRush template technology followed by a deep dive behind-the-scenes look at how CodeRush templates are built. Rory and I will show how to position the caret, select text, call templates from templates, create alternate expansions, and use fields, linked identifiers, context, dynamic lists, TextCommands, and StringProviders -- everything you need to know about exploiting the power of CodeRush templates.

    If you have a common code sample you would like to see us turn into a template, send it to me at markm at the DevExpress domain and we may discuss it in this session.

  • CodeRush Screenshot of the Week – Test Runner Goodness

    This week’s screenshot, submitted by CodeRush customer Casey Kramer, who likes the CodeRush Test Runner:

    Casey says: "I dig the unit test runner, and I do TDD whenever I can….here is a view in the “Red” stage of the Red-Green-Refactor cycle.  The graphic elements on the tests themselves are nice too."

    Congratulations, Casey. Your t-shirt is in the mail!

    Jeff says: "Saving time by generating null exceptions, I like it."

    Congratulations, Jeff. Your t-shirt is in the mail!

    Jeff’s screenshot has inspired us to reveal a sneak preview of more chunky goodness, support for .NET 4.0 contracts, coming in CodeRush 10.2:

  • CodeRush Screenshot of the Week

    One of the things I love about CodeRush is there’s so much depth that sometimes even I forget what we put in there. Here’s an example of a feature I discussed with the devs a while back, but didn’t need until moments ago: Create Event Trigger

    With the caret on an event declaration, press the CodeRush/Refactor! key (Ctrl+` by default).

    I love it when a plan comes together. :-)

    Seen something amazing in CodeRush? Take a screenshot and send it to me (markm at the DevExpress domain). If we use your photo we’ll send you a killer CodeRush Nation t-shirt.
