Predefined surround templates

This topic lists all predefined surround templates in JetBrains Rider 2022.1.

Live/Surround templates can be used for generating code in existing files and (if there is the $SELECTION$ parameter in the template body) for surrounding code fragments with template code, such as try...catch statement.
Each live template is identified by a Shortcut — a short string of characters, for example foreach — that you can type right in the editor to invoke the template.
