CodeRush 17.2.4 is Available for Visual Studio

Another 30 days, another CodeRush release. In this release, what used to be called “CodeRush for Roslyn” (which works in Visual Studio 2015 and up) is now known simply as CodeRush.  If you’re working in earlier versions of Visual Studio CodeRush Classic is still available and supported.

CodeRush has a new product icon, which looks like this:

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.

RightMargin

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.

Code Analysis

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