dotPeek 2018.1 Help


CamelHumps is a feature that identifies parts of compound names composed according to CamelCase, where each part starts with a capital letter, or when parts of a compound name are separated by underscores. You can type only initial letters of these parts, and dotPeek will find items with matching names automatically.

CamelHumps in search commands

CamelHumps always works in all Navigation by Name commands, namely Search Everywhere/Go to Type, Go To Assembly, Go to File Member, and Go to Symbol. It is very convenient to type initial letters of name parts and get the list of matching items:

You can type either uppercase or lowercase letters:

dotPeek can also find CamelCased items that match letters in the query in any order:

dotPeek: order of CamelCase abbreviation
Of course, such items will be placed lower in the results lists if there are items that match both letters and their order in the query.

CamelHumps in code viewer assistance actions

CamelHumps can also work for Extend/Shrink Selection

To enable CamelHumps in typing assistance actions

  1. Select Tools | Options in the main menu.
  2. Go to the Environment | Viewer page of dotPeek options.
  3. With the Use CamelHumps in viewer navigation check box, toggle CamelHumps support in typing assistance features.
  4. Click OK.

If the CamelHumps is enabled, the Extend/Shrink Selection commands take into account parts of compound names. Suppose you have placed the caret in the middle of a compound name with several parts that begin with uppercase letters:

ExtendSelection CamelHumps 1
With CamelHumps, pressing Ctrl+W for the first time selects the current part of the word:
ExtendSelection CamelHumps 2
Only after pressing this keystroke for the second time dotPeek selects the whole word:
ExtendSelection CamelHumps 3
All subsequent presses are processed as usual.
