ReSharper 6 - Another clever feature!
Recently I was copying a composite property which I will just have to refer to as Team. (This was on client's code so I have to change all the names) In class A, Team looked like: return this.Tom + "-" + this.Dick + "-" + this.Harry; In class B, Tom, Dick and Harry were called UncleTom, UncleDick and UncleHarry. When I copied the composite property from class A to class B, highlighted Tom in this.Tom and pressed control-J, ReSharper went straight to this.UncleTom - "clever" ReSharper! Really I should ......

Style Cop 4.5, GhostDoc and Resharper
I am in the midst of style-copping the Irony project for possible use for a VB.NET parsing for StyleCop. I have GhostDoc Pro and a licence for ReSharper. When I first un-zipped Irony, I compiled it and then run the unit tests - all pased. I then started the style-cop process. The first step was to put in a Style-Cop compatible copyright header.

Resharper - another useful feature - dealing with embedded classes

This weekend I was style-copping some code I had downloaded. One of the files contained two classes. Within one file there were two classes; the first class was named the same as the file.  I found the second class header and ReSharper gave me an option to split out the second class to its own file.

ReSharper has many such useful features to aid in fixing code.
