CodeRush – New Release (v18.1.3)

New CSS language support, new layered options, plus multi-select and templates all see improvements in this latest release of CodeRush.

Note, if the Visual Studio Marketplace is still showing version 17.2.8, we are working with Microsoft to resolve this issue. In the meantime you can download the latest CodeRush from the DevExpress Download Manager.

CSS Language Support

CSS gets support for the following features:

Layered Options

CodeRush now stores your settings in Layers, which allow you to bind settings to a particular solution and team, in addition to personal preferences which can serve as defaults (unless overridden by team/solution settings).

You can use this feature to create solution-dependent options and share them across your entire team. These options are applied automatically to all team members using CodeRush when the solution is open.


The actual configuration settings are determined by merging all the settings layers.


There are three pre-defined layers:

  • Solution Personal Options — your personal preferences for the solution that is currently open. This layer has the highest priority and overrides any settings in lower layers.
  • Solution Team Options — your team’s preferences. Stored in a solution directory and should be added to your version control system (VCS) so these options can be shared with the entire team. Solution/Team settings override any default settings below.
  • Personal Options — These are your default preferences for all solutions you work with in CodeRush. This layer has the lowest priority and settings here may be overridden by settings in a higher-priority layer.

You can also add child layers to any pre-defined layer. Custom layers can be stored in any directory and used to specify options not defined in the base layer.


The “ninst” template (generates a new instance for the variable in clipboard) now initializes all properties with the default values, adding TextFields so you can easily change the default property initialization.


We have also added a "ninst," template (with a comma at the end), which creates a simpler initialization of the variable on the clipboard.

To use either of these templates, first copy a variable name to the clipboard, place the caret on an empty line, type the template name and expand it (with Space or Tab, depending on your settings).


Multi-selections are now cleared after being copied.

We have also added the Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Backspace shortcut to restore the most recent multi-selection.
