Invert boolean

This refactoring aims to flip the value of a Boolean variable and all its usages from True to False and vice versa.

Example

BeforeAfter
def foo(): abc < caret here > = True return abc
def foo(): abc = False return not abc

To invert a Boolean variable, follow these steps

  1. Place the caret at the name of a Boolean variable.

  2. From the main menu, choose Refactor | Invert Boolean.

  3. In the dialog that opens, click Preview to view the suggested changes in the Find tool window, or Refactor to invert the detected occurrences silently.
