Invert Boolean refactoring
This refactoring allows you to automatically modify a boolean member so that its value is inverted. If you apply this refactoring to a boolean field or a property, JetBrains Rider lets you specify a new name and invert all its usages, i.e. if you refactor
private bool isEnabled; to
private bool isDisabled;, JetBrains Rider will make sure that, for example,
If you apply this refactoring to a boolean method, JetBrains Rider lets you choose whether to invert its internal logic, usages, or both.
In the example below, we use this refactoring to invert the
IsEven method. We specify a new name
IsOdd and choose to invert both the internal logic and usages:
|Before refactoring||After refactoring|

- Place the caret at the declaration or a usage of a boolean member in the editor, or select it in the Structure window.
- Do one of the following:
- Press Ctrl+Shift+R and then choose Invert Boolean
- Choose in the main menu.
- If no conflicts are found, JetBrains Rider performs the refactoring immediately. Otherwise, it prompts you to resolve conflicts.
