Inline Field refactoring
This refactoring helps you replace a field with its value and remove its declaration. For obvious reasons, the refactoring can be applied to a field that has only one write usage. This may be a constant or readonly field, or a field that is initialized and used in the same function.
If the target field has conditional or complex assignment and it is used within a single function, JetBrains Rider will create a local variable to handle the value of the field.
In the example below, we use this refactoring to inline a constant that has a single usage:
|Before refactoring||After refactoring|
| || |
To inline a field
- Place the caret at the declaration or a usage of a field, which has only one write usage.
- Do one of the following:
- Press Ctrl+R, I and then choose Inline Field
- Press Ctrl+Shift+R and then choose Inline Field
- Choose in the main menu.
- If no conflicts are found, JetBrains Rider performs the refactoring immediately. Otherwise, it prompts you to resolve conflicts.
