ReSharper 2018.2 Help

Code Style

ReSharper | Options | Code Editing | C++ | Code Style

Preferences configurable on this page are taken into account when ReSharper produces new code with code completion and code generation features, applies code templates and performs refactorings. They can also be applied to the existing code by using code cleanup with the corresponding settings.

Item

Description

Include directives

Use forward slash in include directives

Use this check box to choose the preferred path separator for include directives: forward slash or backward slash.

Prefer to use forward declarations if possible

If this option is selected, the new items are created with the forward declaration in the header file.

Use paths relative to the source file

You can use this selector to configure how ReSharper inserts paths to source files when importing types with a quick-fix or with import symbol completion.

Use angle brackets instead of quotes

By default, generated include directives are added in quotes, if necessary, you can use this selector to specify cases where generated include directives are added in angle brackets.

Position of cv-qualifiers

Put cv-qualifiers before type

If this option is selected, the const, volatile, and mutable qualifiers are put before the type specifier. Otherwise, they are put after the type specifier.

Put 'const' before 'volatile'

Defines the order of cv-qualifiers.

Initialization

Default pointer initializer

You can specify 0, nullptr or NULL as the preferred initializer for pointer initializers, e.g.: const char *foo = nullptr.

Use uniform initialization in member initializers

By default, ReSharper uses C++03 style when generating initializers (e.g. when you generate constructors or apply a quick-fix that inserts initializer into an existing constructor). You can select this check box to enable uniform initialization in the above mentioned cases.

Prefer uniform initialization in NSDMIs

Refactorings

Insert type alias instead of typedef in the 'Introduce Type' refactoring

Generate

Use trailing return types in generated function declarations

If this option is enabled, various code generation features will create function declarations with trailing return types instead of using the classic return type style.
