Inline Class refactoring
This refactoring allows you to merge one class into another class. The class that you merge in is removed, its members are moved to the class where the merged class is used, and all usages of the merged class are updated accordingly.

To inline a class
- Place the caret at the name or a usage of a property or a field that represents the class that you want to merge in. Or, alternatively, select a property or a field in the Structure window.
- Do one of the following:
- Press Ctrl+R, I and then choose Inline Class
- Press Ctrl+Shift+R and then choose Inline Class
- Choose in the main menu.
- If no conflicts are found, JetBrains Rider performs the refactoring immediately. Otherwise, it prompts you to resolve conflicts.
After applying the refactoring the property or the field is replaced with members of its type. All usages of the property or the field are updated accordingly.
