Code Inspection: Complex class should be refactored

Reports the classes that are too complex.

Class complexity is evaluated based on three metrics:

  • TCC (Tight class cohesion) — the measure of class cohesiveness (more is better).

  • WMC (Weighted Method count) — the sum of cyclomatic complexities for all methods in a class (less is better).

  • ATFD (Access to foreign data) — the number of properties from another class that are accessed in the current class (less is better).

Suppress an inspection in the editor

  1. Place the caret at the highlighted line and press Alt+Enter or click the Intention action icon.

  2. Click the arrow next to the inspection you want to suppress and select the necessary suppress action.
