Duplicates Tool Window
On this page:
Panes of the Duplicates tool window
The window consists of the following panes:
- The left pane displays the tree view of the duplicate fragments of source code.
Each node shows the following information:
- The number of duplicated code fragments found in scope.
- The 'cost' of the duplicate (which is an arbitrary unit calculated using an additive algorithm on the base of the code block size; generally, the larger is the code fragment, the higher is its cost).
- The containing class where the duplicates are located.
- The right pane shows the differences between the duplicated fragments of source code, selected in the left pane.
