The Extract Constant refactoring makes your source code easier to read and maintain. It also helps you avoid using hardcoded constants without any explanations about their values or purpose.

Extract a constant

  1. In the editor, select an expression or declaration of a variable you want to replace with a constant.

  2. Press Ctrl+Alt+C to introduce a constant or select Refactor | Extract | Constant.

    Select an expression you want to extract as constant and press Enter. Select the number of occurrences you want to replace and a name you want to use.
