Move Types into Matching Files
This command is a bulk fix that helps you organize types and/or delegates so that each type/delegate definition is located in a single file with the matching name — that is, if there are several types/delegates declared in a single file, new files are created for each declaration; if a file name does not match the single type/delegate declaration it contains, then the file is renamed.
All required imports are added in new files; all imports that are no longer necessary are removed from the original files.
To move types into matching files
- In the Solution Explorer, select a node where you want to organize types into matching files.
- Do one of the following: Move Types into Matching Files dialog will open.
- Select the kinds of declarations that should be moved into matching files.
- To apply the refactoring, click Next.
- If there are no conflicts, the refactoring is performed immediately. If there are existing files that conflict with newly created or renamed files, the wizard displays a page with conflicts. You can double-click conflicts to navigate to the corresponding declarations and fix them.
You can also move a single type into the matching file right from the editor using a context action or apply this action in a larger scope (which will give you the same result as performing the refactoring):
Mismatching type and file names can also be fixed from the editor with a context action:
You can also move any type to a new or existing file using the Move Type to Another File refactoring.
