ReSharper 2018.2 Help


ReSharper | Options | Code Editing | C++ | Inspections

On this page, you can adjust the way code inspection works in C++.




Enable C++/CLI support

By default, ReSharper will work in C++/CLI code. If you notice some problems there, you can disable this feature.

Show popups for import actions

Enable inspections, quick fixes and context actions in files external to the solution

Color identifiers

This options enables extended highlighting of C++ syntax. There are 20 identifier types that you can highlight differently. You can change colors and fonts at any time in Visual Studio options (Tools | Options | Environment | Fonts and Colors).

Configuring syntax highlighting for C++ identifiers

Replace Visual Studio tooltip

Show gutter icons

By default, ReSharper adds action indicators (gutter icons) that provide quick access to navigation and other actions.
In some cases, there may be too many of these indicators and you may want to disable them:

ReSharper's action indicators (gutter marks in a C++ file
The most frequently appearing action indicator is Navigate to declaration/definition ThemedIcon Switch Screen Gray , so you can either disable only this action or hide all action indicators.

Severity of inspections inside template code

Treat resolve errors as warnings in template code

This option lets you decrease severity of errors in C++ templates. By default, this option is enabled. You may want to leave it enabled for two reasons:
  • Visual Studio does not compile unused C++ templates. Thus, if this option is not enabled, you may see errors in perfectly compilable code.

  • Visual Studio compiler works not exactly the same as the C++ standard prescribes. Therefore, this option allows you not to highlight errors that that are possibly ignored by the Visual Studio compiler.

Severity of inspections inside template code

Enable clang-tidy support

Lets you enable or disable Clang-Tidy integration.

List of enabled/disabled clang-tidy checks

The -checks command line option of the Clang-Tidy binary is used to pass the list of enabled checks, which then gets appended to the value of the checks option read from the Clang-Tidy config. To construct the -checks argument, ReSharper takes this value and appends to it the names of Clang-Tidy checks which are turned off on the Code Inspection | Inspection Severity options page.

Additional clang command line arguments

Arguments specified in this field are appended to the list of arguments passed to the Clang-Tidy binary.

Clang-Tidy config

Use this field to pass a string with custom configuration to the Clang-Tidy binary via the -config command-line option.

Reformat changed code after applying Clang-Tidy fix-its

By default, ReSharper will reformat code changed by Clang-Tidy fixes to maintain the code style.
You can disable this setting to speed up the execution of Clang-Tidy fixes and bulk-reformat the modified code later.
