Code Inspection: Join local variable declaration and assignment

If you declare a local variable and initialize it later without any conditions, Rider suggests to join declaration and assignment in the place where the variable is first initialized. This removes unnecessary line and improves readability of your code.

Here is an example of a quick-fix suggested by this inspection:

Suboptimal codeAfter the quick-fix
int Bar() { int myInt; //do something myInt = 3; // do something else return myInt - 1; }
int Bar() { //do something var myInt = 3; // do something else return myInt - 1; }

When Rider joins the declaration and the assignment of your variable, it will use var or an explicit type depending on your preferences.
