Convert Method to Indexer
This refactoring helps you convert methods that access collections into indexers and update method usages accordingly. You can apply it to:
A method with return value and one or more parameters to convert it into the
getaccessor of an indexer with the same set of parameters.
A method with
voidreturn type and two or more parameters (the last of which is expected to be a value and the others represent the index) to convert it into the
setaccessor of an indexer.
Consider the following example:
|Before refactoring||Applied to 'GetBookAt'||Then applied to 'InsertBookAt'|
To convert a method to an indexer
- Place the caret at the declaration or a usage of a method in the editor, or select the method in the File Structure window.
Do one of the following:
- On the main menu, choose
- Right-click and choose Refactor | Convert Method to Indexer on the context menu.
- Press Ctrl+Shift+R and then choose Convert Method to Indexer
- If no conflicts are found, ReSharper performs the refactoring immediately. Otherwise, it prompts you to resolve conflicts.
