JetBrains Rider 2018.2 Help

Generating GUIDs

Rider helps you quickly generate a GUID when you need it. It provides several GUID formats that can be copied to the clipboard and then pasted in the code. Optionally, you can choose between lowercase and uppercase GUID representations.

To generate a GUID

  1. Do one of the following:

    • Choose Tools | Generate GUID from the menu.

    • Press Ctrl+Shift+A, start typing guid and then pick the corresponding action.

  2. In the dialog that opens, choose how you want to copy the generated GUID and whether it is uppercase.
