New CodeRush Community Plugin - DX_ConvertToTryParse


This new plugin provides a new item for the Code menu which converts…




There is a small limitation in this version. The new variable introduced (“Success”) is currently hardcoded and may clash with an existing variable. I’ll fix that in an update. I just wanted to get this out there for now.

Well, actually it does change the behavior. In original case you'll get an exception when an input text doesn't represent a number while in "refactored" case there won't be an exception.

The addition of code is insignificant as long as behavior is the same.

Nice one! This should be included as an out of the box refactoring.

@Miha Fair enough... I'll sort that out ASAP :)

Does this work for VB.NET?

I couldn't seem to get it...

@Miha Latest version is reconfigured as a CodeProvider rather than a Refactoring. :)

@SimonMartin Yes this should work with VB.Net

Place your caret on the = sign of...

       Dim X As Integer = Integer.Parse("34")

...and hit your CodeRush Refactor key.

It is possible that the .dll may need to be unblocked. see

Rory, I think this should be available when the caret is on the Parse method call.

Seems pretty reasonable. I'll see what I can do. :)
