Redundant qualifier name

Reports redundant qualifiers (or their parts) on class names, functions, and properties.

A fully qualified name is an unambiguous identifier that specifies which object, function, or property a call refers to. In the contexts where the name can be shortened, the inspection informs on the opportunity and the associated 'Remove redundant qualifier name' quick-fix allows amending the code.


package import kotlin.Int.Companion.MAX_VALUE class Foo fun main() { val a = // 'Foo' resides in the declared '' package, qualifier is redundant val b = kotlin.Int.MAX_VALUE // Can be replaced with 'MAX_VALUE' since it's imported val c = kotlin.Double.MAX_VALUE // Can be replaced with 'Double.MAX_VALUE' since built-in types are imported automatically }

After the quick-fix is applied:

package import kotlin.Int.Companion.MAX_VALUE class Foo fun main() { val a = Foo() val b = MAX_VALUE val c = Double.MAX_VALUE }
