Rename Dialogs

Refactor | Rename

Use this dialog to rename a class, a file, a class member, etc..

In addition to renaming the target item itself, AppCode can also look for the usages of the target item name. If found, the changes you are making to the target item name can also be applied to these usages.

The usages are assigned to different categories which correspond to the options which you can turn on and off.

Note that regardless of the options selected, the search scope (that is, the places where the name occurrences are looked for) is always limited to the current entity (file, class, etc) and the entities that the current one depends on.
