Assembly Diff

ReSharper options: Tools | Assembly Diff

In this page of ReSharper options, you can configure preferences for comparing assemblies, NuGet packages, archives, and folders in the Assembly Explorer .

Diff mode

Select one of the following options to display the compared entities:

  • Show all — all items within both entities will be displayed.

  • Show only differences — only items with differences and items that are missing in one of the entities will be shown. All identical items will be hidden.

  • Show only signature differences — only members with different signatures are shown. Members with the same signatures (bodies are ignored) as well as all identical items will be hidden.

  • Show only public API differences — only public members with different signatures are shown. Public members with the same signatures (bodies are ignored), all non-public symbols, as well as identical items will be hidden.

Ignore member order differences

If this option is selected, the following classes will be considered as having no differences:

class Test { int _one = 1; int _two = 2; }
class Test { int _two = 2; int _one = 1; }

Ignore attribute order differences

If this option is selected, the following fields will be considered as having no differences:

[Obsolete] [NonSerialized] string _test = "test";
[NonSerialized] [Obsolete] string _test = "test";

Ignore differences in nullable reference types annotations

If this option is selected, the following methods will be considered as having no differences:

void Sample(string test) { //do something }
void Sample(string? test) { //do something }
