Code Inspection: Inconsistent Naming

This inspection notifies you about violations of symbol naming style whether you use the default set of naming rules or configure your preferences.

Out of the box, JetBrains Rider provides a naming rule for each type of identifier. These rules are based on the Microsoft Naming Guidelines, .NET Foundation Coding Guidelines, and best practices.
Note that there is no strict correspondence between JetBrains Rider naming-rule defaults and any of the above mentioned guidelines.

If your personal preferences or company standards differ from JetBrains Rider defaults, you can configure the naming style in a flexible way: for each type of identifier you can choose capitalization rules, prefixes and suffixes, variations for different access rights, abbreviations to preserve, and more.

Your naming style preferences are saved using the mechanism of layer-based settings. Among other things, this mechanism allows you to maintain different preferences for different solutions as well as to keep these preferences under a VCS and automatically share them with your team members.
