How ReSharper C++ Helps Visual Studio Users

Analyze and improve code quality

ReSharper C++ highlights code issues in the editor and provides quick-fixes to improve code in one way or another. Unreachable code? Redundant statements? Suspicious object slicing or incorrect format specifier? ReSharper C++ will bring these and other kinds of problems to your attention and help you fix them.

Find usages and navigate code

You can instantly jump at any file, type, or type member in solution. You can search for usages of any code and enjoy a clear view of found usages, with grouping and preview options. Last but not least, you can go from any code symbol to its declaration or definition, its base or derived symbols.

Refactor and transform code

Code refactorings for C++ help safely change your code base, which is especially important in a language as non-trivial as C++. Context actions help switch between alternative syntax constructs and serve as shortcuts to code generation actions.

Generate common code

Code that ReSharper C++ can generate for you includes definitions, missing and overriding members, equality and relational operators, hash and swap functions. Add dozens of customizable templates, and you have the tools to deal with boilerplate code faster than ever.

Run and manage unit tests

ReSharper C++ supports running Google Test and Boost.Test based unit tests in Visual Studio. You can run and debug unit tests contextually, right from the text editor. Dedicated tool windows help you view, group, filter and run unit tests, create and manage unit test sessions.

Use a consistent code style

Configure code formatting options and naming style, share settings with your teammates, and maintaining a consistent code style should never be a problem again.

What's New

Why Upgrade to ReSharper C++ 2016.3

Introduce or inline a typedef with ReSharper C++

Typedef refactorings

The Introduce typedef refactoring allows you to quickly create a typedef for the selected data type and replace this data type and all its occurrences with the newly created typedef.

The Inline typedef refactoring does the inverse: it replaces an existing typedef with the actual data type.

Support for Catch unit testing framework

Unit testing with Catch C++

In addition to Boost.Test and Google Test frameworks, unit testing assistance is now available for the Catch C++ test framework. Therefore, you can now use ReSharper C++ unit test runner to discover, run, and debug Catch tests in Visual Studio.
