To generate properties
  1. Position the caret within a class where you'd like to generate properties.
  2. On the main menu, choose ReSharper | Edit | Generate Code, or press Alt+Insert.
  3. From the Generate pop-up menu, select Properties or Read-only properties.
  4. On the Generate properties or Generate read-only properties page of the Generate wizard, select fields to generate properties for.
  5. Optionally, use the following controls that are applied to all properties at this point (see next step for guidelines on customizing individual properties):
    • Access Rights defines common access rights for generated properties.
    • Read-only defines whether to generate properties as read-only or not. If you choose Automatic, ReSharper will generate only getters for read-only fields, and both getters and setters for any other fields.
    • Virtual (if applicable) adds the virtual modifier to generated properties.
    • Debugger steps through adds the DebuggerStepThrough attribute to getters and setters of generated properties.
    • Copy XML documentation copies XML documentation from fields to properties.
  6. Do one of the following:
    • To configure generation options (listed in the previous step) individually for specific fields, click Advanced. You can then select individual fields, or Ctrl-click two or more fields to configure their respective settings in a uniform fashion.

      After finishing this step, click Next, and as soon as the following screen appears, click Finish.
    • Click Finish to complete the wizard.
      For example, if two fields are configured to be accessed with public read-only properties with duplicated XML documentation, and the other two are configured to be accessed with protected virtual read-write properties that debugger should step through, the following code is generated:


Fields that already have read, write, or read-write properties will not appear in the Generate Properties wizard.


You can convert any property with backing field to an auto-property by clicking Alt+Enter at the name of the property and choosing Convert to auto-property in the list of quick-fixes and context actions:
