Editor Behavior

ReSharper | Options | Environment | Editor | Editor Behavior

This page of ReSharper options allows you to adjust ReSharper's behavior in the editor.

ItemDescription
Typing assist
Use CamelHumps Enables CamelHumps for the following actions:
  • Extend/Shrink Selection (Ctrl+W / Ctrl+Shift+W)
  • Extend Selection to Next/Previous Word (Ctrl+Shift+Right Arrow / Ctrl+Shift+Left Arrow)
  • Go to Next/Previous Word (Ctrl+Left Arrow / Ctrl+Right Arrow)
  • Delete text from the start of the word to the caret (Ctrl+Backspace)
  • Delete text from the caret to the end of the word Ctrl+Delete
If this check box is selected, the words that compose CamelHumped names are taken into account when you use these actions.

This check box does not have any impact on how CamelHumps works in Code Completion (IntelliSense) or in Navigation and Search commands.

Auto-format on semicolon If this check box is selected, ReSharper applies code formatting rules to the statement when you type a semicolon.
Auto-format on closing brace If this check box is selected, ReSharper applies code formatting rules to the block of code when you type its closing brace.
Auto-format on paste This selector lets you configure whether to apply code formatting rules for pasted code. By default, ReSharper only applies indentation settings when you paste code, which is a convenient option if you do not want to follow formatting rules very strictly.

Even if auto-formatting or auto-indenting on paste are enabled, you can paste code without reformatting it: press Ctrl+Z right after pasting, and only formatting will be undone.

Note that by default, Visual Studio applies its own formatting rules for edited and pasted code. If you are using ReSharper auto-formatting features, we recommend that you disable Visual Studio auto-formatting. You can do it in Visual Studio options (Tools | Options). For C# for example, clear the corresponding check-boxes on the Text Editor | C# | Code Style | Formatting | General options page.

Correct common language-specific typos If this check box is selected, ReSharper automatically fixes mistyped characters - @$ in verbatim string interpolation or dot or semicolon inside parentheses.
You may want to clear this check box if you prefer to specify double values without the leading zero, e.g. DoSomething(.33);.
Smart indent on Enter If this check box is selected, each time you press Enter in the editor, ReSharper will calculate the indent for the next line taking into account all settings that affect indentation, e.g. whether and how to use tabs (configurable on Code Editing | General Formatter Style), whether to align chain method calls (configurable on Code Editing | C# | Formatting Style | Other), etc.
If this check box is cleared, the next line will be aligned according to Visual Studio settings.
Braces and Parentheses
Auto-insert pair brackets, parenthesis and quotes If this check box is selected, a closing bracket, parenthesis or quote is automatically created whenever you type the corresponding opening element [, (, " or '. If you change your mind and press Backspace to delete the opening delimiter, its closing pair is also deleted.
Auto-insert closing brace If this check box is selected, a closing brace is inserted automatically:
  • Immediately after you've typed the opening brace (On typing an opening brace)
  • After you've typed the opening brace and pressed Enter (On Enter after an opening brace)
Structural navigation
Use Tab/Shift+Tab keys for structural navigation This check box enables Structural Navigation and overrides the behavior of Tab and Shift+Tab. There are also three sub-options that allow you to specify when the standard behavior of these keys should be preserved.
C#
Annotate nullability on '!'/'?' after type name When this option is enabled, ReSharper will automatically add the [NotNull]/ [CanBeNull] annotations when you type '!'/'?' after a type name in a method signature or member declaration. E.g: if you type public void Foo(string?, ReSharper will automatically convert it to public void Foo([CanBeNull] string.
Annotate nullability on '!'/'?' after entity name When this option is enabled, ReSharper will automatically add the [NotNull]/ [CanBeNull] annotations when you type '!'/'?' after a name of the declared symbol or parameter in a method signature or member declaration. E.g: if you type public void Foo(string myStr?, ReSharper will automatically convert it to public void Foo([CanBeNull] string myStr.
Insert parameter null check on '!' after type or type name... If a parameter is marked with the [NotNull] attribute, you can set the caret directly after the parameter name or parameter type and press !:
private void Foo([NotNull] object/*!*/ arg/*!*/)
ReSharper will generate a null check for this parameter. You can configure the null-check pattern on the Code Editing | C# | Null Checking page of ReSharper options.
VB.NET
Insert end constructs If this check box is selected, ReSharper will automatically add a matching end construct when you type the opening part. For example, when you type Sub, End Sub will be added automatically.
HTML
Auto-format on enter If this check box is selected, ReSharper applies code formatting rules to the recently typed code after you press Enter.
Auto-format on closing tag If this check box is selected, ReSharper automatically formats recently added code after you type the closing tag of an element.
Synchronous changing of matching tag If this check box is selected, ReSharper simultaneously changes the closing tag when you are editing the opening tag of an element and vice versa.
ASP.NET
Auto-format on enter If this check box is selected, ReSharper applies code formatting rules to the recently typed code after you press Enter.
Auto-format on closing tag If this check box is selected, ReSharper automatically formats recently added code after you type the closing tag of an element.
Synchronous changing of matching tag If this check box is selected, ReSharper simultaneously changes the closing tag when you are editing the opening tag of an element and vice versa.
Razor
Auto-format on enter If this check box is selected, ReSharper applies code formatting rules to the recently typed code after you press Enter.
Auto-format on closing tag If this check box is selected, ReSharper automatically formats recently added code after you type the closing tag of an element.
Synchronous changing of matching tag If this check box is selected, ReSharper simultaneously changes the closing tag when you are editing the opening tag of an element and vice versa.
