Visual Studio does not provide built-in real-time code metrics calculation as you type. However, Visual Studio does offer code metrics features that can be used to analyze code quality and calculate metrics for your codebase. These features include:
Code Metrics Window:
Analyze -> Calculate Code Metrics:
SonarLint or Other Third-Party Extensions:
While Visual Studio does not perform real-time code metrics calculation as you type, you can leverage the aforementioned features to periodically analyze your codebase and assess its quality based on metrics. Additionally, integrating third-party extensions like SonarLint can provide more comprehensive and immediate feedback on code quality and potential issues as you write code.
Removing unused code from a project in Visual Studio can help improve the performance, reduce code complexity, and make the codebase easier to maintain. Visual Studio provides several tools to help identify and remove unused code.
Code Analysis: Visual Studio's Code Analysis feature can help identify unused code in your project. To run Code Analysis, right-click on the project in Solution Explorer, select "Run Code Analysis," and then select "Microsoft.CodeAnalysis.NetAnalyzers" from the list of rulesets.
CodeLens: Visual Studio's CodeLens feature can show you references to a method or property, which can help you identify unused code. CodeLens shows you information about code such as the number of references to a method or property, the last time it was modified, and who modified it.
Remove Unused References: You can use Visual Studio's "Remove Unused References" feature to identify and remove any references to assemblies that are no longer used in your project. To use this feature, right-click on the project in Solution Explorer, select "Manage NuGet Packages," and then select the "Consolidate" tab. From there, you can remove any unused references.
Remove Unused Code Manually: You can also remove unused code manually by using tools such as Visual Studio's "Find All References" and "Go To Definition" features to find where a method or property is used. If you find that it's not used, you can safely remove it from the codebase.
In summary, Visual Studio provides several tools to help identify and remove unused code from your project. Using these tools can help improve the performance, reduce code complexity, and make the codebase easier to maintain.
In Visual Studio Code, the order in which suggestions appear in the autocomplete list is determined by several factors, including:
Frequency: Suggestions that you have used frequently in the past will appear higher in the list.
Type: Suggestions that match the type of the current context, such as methods or properties, will appear higher in the list.
Name: Suggestions that match the name you have typed so far will appear higher in the list.
Proximity: Suggestions that are closer to the current cursor position will appear higher in the list.
If you want to change the order in which suggestions appear in the autocomplete list, you can adjust the settings in Visual Studio Code.
To configure the order of suggestions in the autocomplete list, follow these steps:
Open the settings editor by clicking on the gear icon in the lower left corner of the window and selecting "Settings".
In the search bar, type "editor.suggestSelection" to filter the settings related to autocomplete.
Look for the setting "editor.suggestSelection": this setting allows you to configure how suggestions are selected in the autocomplete list. The possible values are "recentlyUsed", "first", "recentlyUsedByPrefix" and "nearest".
Select the value that best fits your needs. For example, if you want to prioritize suggestions that you have used recently, set the value to "recentlyUsed".
Save the settings by clicking on the "Save" button in the upper right corner of the window.
By adjusting the settings in Visual Studio Code, you can customize the order in which suggestions appear in the autocomplete list to best fit your coding habits and preferences.
