C# + ReSharper = Awesome: Tip #1 – To Automatic Property

This is the first in a series of quick how-to posts on ReSharper. I love ReSharper. It is a tool that I use every day and don’t really realize how much I rely on it until I use a machine without ReSharper installed.

Tip #1 – To Automatic Property

Use: If a public property does not contain any logic, it can be converted to an auto-property, removing the corresponding private field and replacing usages of the private field.

Before
        private string _name;
        public string Name
        {
            get { return _name; }
            set { _name = value; }
        }

        public void CheckName()
        {
            if (_name == "Dark Side of the Moon")
                Console.WriteLine("Awesome");
        }

Place your cursor on the Name property and…

Press <Alt-Enter>

After
        public string Name { get; set; }

        public void CheckName()
        {
            if (Name == "Dark Side of the Moon")
                Console.WriteLine("Awesome");
        }

Happy coding!
