Generating Partial Methods

The Generate partial methods command will help you create implementation stubs for not implemented partial methods.

  1. In the editor, position the caret within a partial type at the line where you want to insert implementations of partial methods.
  2. Press Alt+Insert or choose ReSharper | Edit | Generate Codeā€¦ in the main menu .
  3. In the Generate pop-up menu, select Partial Members.
  4. In the Generate dialog box that appears, select partial methods to create implementation stubs for.
