Find Code Issues in Specific Scope
Design-time code inspection is a great help when you are coding in the editor or reviewing specific files. However, ReSharper also allows you to run static code analysis in the whole solution or narrower scope and examine the results in a friendly view. You can even share inspection results if necessary.
Start code inspection
Inspect code in solution, project or in a custom scope
Decide whether you want the results of the solution-wide inspections (for example, unused public members) to be included in the report. If you want these results to be included, enable the solution wide-analysis. Note that when the solution-wide analysis is enabled, ReSharper has to analyze the whole solution even if you need to inspect a single project, so be prepared that it takes more time.
Do one of the following:
In the main menu, chooseor .
In the Solution Explorer, select items (files, folders, projects, solution folders) that you want to inspect, right-click the selection and choose Find Code Issues in the context menu.
In the Architecture View, select one or more items, right-click the selection and choose Find Code Issues in the context menu.
The Inspection Results window will open displaying detected code issues.
Analyze inspection results
In the Inspection Results window, you can view the list of discovered code issues and locate them in the editor by double-clicking the entries:
Each new run of code inspection opens a new tab in the window so the results of previous runs are preserved until you close their tabs.
By default, issues are grouped by files. If necessary, you can regroup issues by type, severity, and so on using the Group by: selector.
To check context of the selected code issue, use the Preview pane that displays one or more lines related to the issue in the code file. Use the Show Preview selector to open the pane at the bottom or on the right of the window.
Filter inspection results
When you inspect code, ReSharper apply code inspections with all severity levels. However, issues detected with inspections of 'Hint' severity are filtered out by default. If necessary, you can customize filtering of code issues.
Note that the selected filtering affects the way code issues are filtered in the current tab and the way issues are filtered the next time you run code inspection.
Filter issues in the inspection results
If you want to hide issues of some type or hide all other issues except issues of this type, right-click a code issue and choose Hide All [Issue type] Issues or Show Only [Issue type] Issues correspondingly.
For more precise filtering, click Filter Issues on the toolbar and use the Filter Issues dialog to specify issue types that should be displayed. The Defaults button in this dialog restores the default filtering when issues with severity levels of 'Hint' are filtered out.
Share inspection results
Export inspection results to a file
Click Export on the toolbar to export the data currently displayed in the window in text format , or use the drop-down selector to export the data in XML or HTML format. The Export Data dialog that appears, will help you to save the data to a file or copy it to the clipboard .
An alternative way to export current issues to an XML report, is to choosein the main menu and then specify filename and location.
Study inspection results saved in an XML report
In the main menu, choose.
Select an XML report file and click Open.
The report is opened in a new tab of the Inspection Results window. If the current solution corresponds to that of the XML report, you will be able to navigate to the issues by double-clicking on the inspection result items.
