Postfix Templates

ReSharper | Options | Code Editing | Postfix Templates

This page of ReSharper options lets you configure postfix templates.

Use tabs to switch between postfix templates in specific languages and use check-boxes to enable or disable templates. Note that the same templates in different languages should be enabled/disabled individually.

On the bottom of the page, you can find the following configuration options:

Item

Description

Code completion

Show postfix templates

Clear this check box if you want to disable postfix templates in the auto-completion lists.

Show source templates

Clear this check box if you want to disable source templates in the auto-completion lists.

Other options

Put braces after statement templates

If this check box is selected, ReSharper adds braces after statement templates. For example, ReSharper will add braces after the template .if applied to myBool:

if(myBool) { }
.

Search for occurrences in .var template

If this check box is selected, ReSharper checks whether the expression, which you are introducing a variable for, has more occurrences in the current scope. If multiple occurrences, ReSharper can help you replace all of them with usages of the newly introduced variable:
