Tomer Gabel's annoying spot on the 'net RSS 2.0
# Wednesday, 02 January 2008

A few ReSharper tips for your viewing pleasure (according to rumors it can extend your penis too!):

Alt+Shift+L locates the current file in the Solution Explorer (at least with the IDEA-style keyboard bindings we all know and love). This is particularly useful for extremely file-heavy solutions where you often want to Get Latest (or Undo Check Out) the current file.

Note: you can get this behavior automatically through Tools->Options->Projects and Solutions->Track Active Item in Solution Explorer, but in my opinion it's annoying as hell.

Easier unit testing: you can bind shortcuts to run or debug unit tests by context. Context means that the behavior is exactly as expected: using the shortcut with the cursor on a test will run just that test, using it on a class will run it as a whole fixture, and using it on a directory in the Solution Explorer will run all tests that reside in that directory. This is easily accomplished by going to the Tools->Options->Keyboard menu and binding:

  • ReSharper.ReSharper_UnitTest_ContextDebug to whichever shortcut you wish for debugging purposes (my favourite is Ctrl+T, Ctrl+D)
  • ReSharper.ReSharper_UnitTest_ContextRun to whichever shortcut you'd like to use in order to just run tests (my favourite is Ctrl+T, Ctrl+T)

Note: You can get the same behavior with the ubiquitous, but it makes no sense to me to pay twice for the same functionality.
