Code style and cleanup
ReSharper provides a lot of features for keeping your code neat and clean. Being tightly interwoven with the majority of other ReSharper's features, they help you produce code and change existing codebases according to the specific code style. The code style, which includes naming standards, formatting rules, file layout, file header style, and many other tiny aspects (such as order of modifiers or whether to use the 'var' keyword) can be configured to a very detailed level and shared across your team.
ReSharper uses different approaches to deal with different aspects of the code style. For instance:
Violations of code formatting rules as well as some other minor inconsistencies are not highlighted for the reason of keeping your code readable in the editor. Violations of formatting rules can be easily fixed though — select non-formatted code, press Alt+Enter and choose Format Selection.
The mechanism of shared settings allows keeping your code style configurations under a VCS and automatically sharing them with your team members.
You can refer to specific topics in this section to learn how exactly ReSharper deals with the corresponding code style aspects.
Most of ReSharper's code style features are available in C# and Visual Basic .NET, some are available in several languages, others are language-specific. The table below lists all code style features and languages/technologies where they are supported.
The instructions and examples given in the topics within this section address the use of code style features in C#. For more information on code style features available for specific languages, see the corresponding topics in the ReSharper by language section.
