Copy Type refactoring

This refactoring allows you to copy a class, interface, struct, or enum defined in your solution from one namespace to another, or clone it within the same namespace. For partial types, all parts will be copied even if they are located in separate files.

Make a copy of a type

  1. Select a type in one of the following ways:

    • In the editor, set the caret at the name of a type.

    • Select a type in the Solution Explorer.

    • Select a type in the File Structure window.

    • Select a type in the Class View.

    • Select a type in the Object Browser.

    • Select a type in the type dependency diagram.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • Press Control+Shift+R and then choose Copy Type

    • Right-click and choose Refactor | Copy Type in the context menu.

    • Choose ReSharper | Refactor | Copy Type… in the main menu.

    The Copy Type dialog will open.

  3. Specify a name for the copied type and a namespace where it should be added.

  4. To apply the refactoring, click Next.

  5. If no conflicts are found, ReSharper performs the refactoring immediately. Otherwise, it prompts you to resolve conflicts.
