In this page of ReSharper options, you can specify your preferences for code inspection.
|Enable code analysis||Select this check box to enable design-time code inspection.|
|Color identifiers|| This option lets you enable or disable ReSharper syntax highlighting scheme. |
If it is selected, language identifiers are highlighted with colors as defined in Visual Studio options: .
The list of syntax identifiers provided by ReSharper is available in the Display items list, each name starting with ReSharper prefix.
|Highlight color usages||Enables highlighting of color definitions in code. For more information, see Color Assistance.|
|Highlight special characters in string literals||Enables highlighting of correct and incorrect escape sequences in non-verbatim strings. For example: For more information, see Regular Expressions Assistance.|
|Highlight context exits|| This option, enabled by default, tells ReSharper to highlight all places where the control flow can exit the current context. For example, for a method, it will highlight the return type of the method, all |
Note that if a method is not entirely visible in the editor, you can invoke the Navigate To Function Exits command on the method name to trigger another kind of highlighting, which will not disappear when you your caret leaves the method name.
|Enable solution-wide analysis|| |
Note that in large solutions, solution-wide analysis may result in some performance degradation. However, there are several ways to improve the performance of solution-wide analysis. For more information, see Configuring Solution-Wide Analysis.
|Include warnings|| |
Enables warnings in the solution-wide analysis.
By default, solution-wide analysis monitors errors and warnings in your solution: as long as there are errors in the solution, only errors will be displayed; unresolved warnings will appear when the last error is fixed. If you only want to monitor errors, you can disable warnings; in this case, the status bar indicator will turn green as soon as the last error is fixed.
|Show the 'Import namespace' action using popup||If this option is selected, a pop-up that suggests importing namespaces shows up if there is one or more non-imported types are detected in the file: If it is not selected, the corresponding action appears in the action list. See Importing Missing Namespaces for details.|
|Value analysis mode|| Using the value analysis, ReSharper finds out which entities can hold null value and highlights possible errors with null dereference. You can choose one of the following modes. |
|Visual Studio Integration|
|Do not show Visual Studio bulb...|| This option is not available in Visual Studio versions older than 2015. |
If it is selected, Visual Studio's light bulbs are not shown separately. If necessary, Visual Studio's quick actions are integrated into ReSharper's action list. For each Visual Studio's quick action, ReSharper does the following:
|Suppress Visual Studio squiggles...|| This option is not available in Visual Studio versions older than 2015. |
If it is selected, Visual Studio's error highlighting in the editor is not displayed, only ReSharper's highlighting appears.
