CamelHumps™ is a feature that identifies parts of compound names composed according to CamelCase, where each part starts with a capital letter.

By default, it works in all Search by Name commands, namely Go To Type, Go To File, Go To File Member, and Go To Symbol , as well as in all Code Completion features. It is very convenient to type capital letters and get the list of available symbols with matching names:

Even better, type lowercase letters, ReSharper will recognize and match them as well:

 Tip

CamelHumps™ works perfectly with symbol names that use underscores. For example, you can type iie to look for is_in_empty_code_block.

However, you should take some additional steps to use CamelHumps™ in Extend/Shrink Selection and Next/Previous Word features.

To enable CamelHumps in Extend/Shrink Selection and Next/Previous Word
  1. On the main menu, choose ReSharper | Options. The Options dialog box opens.
  2. Click Editor on the left pane of the Options dialog box.
  3. Select the Use CamelHumps™ check box.
  4. Click Save or Save To to apply changes.

     Note

    ReSharper maintains several setting layers, so pay attention what layer you modify. For more information, see Managing and Sharing Options.

Now, after you've switched CamelHumps™ on, the Next/Previous Word command works in a slightly different way. When you press Ctrl+Right/Left, the caret moves to the next/previous upper case character in the current word, and only after that, it moves on to the next/previous word.

The Extend/Shrink Selection commands are also affected by CamelHumps™. Suppose you've placed the caret in the middle of a compound word with several parts that begin with upper case letters:

If CamelHumps™ is switched on, then pressing Ctrl+W for the first time selects the current part of the word:

Only after pressing this keystroke for the second time ReSharper selects the whole word:

All subsequent presses are processed as usual.

To change the way code completion filtering works with CamelHumps™
  1. On the main menu, choose ReSharper | Options. The Options dialog box opens.
  2. Click IntelliSense, then click Completion Behavior on the left pane of the Options dialog box.
  3. Clear the Match middle of the identifiers check box on the Completion Behavior pane of the current dialog box.
  4. Click Save or Save To to apply changes.
