Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Format rules for Visual Basic in Visual Studio 2017, part of Visual Studio Essential Training: 05 Code Editors.
- [Instructor] In an earlier movie in this chapter,…I looked at the formatting rules for Visual Basic.…What I want to look at in this movie…is some of the enhancements you'll find…in Visual Studio 2017,…at least as it applies to the Tools Options dialog…for the text editor.…What I've got showing here on this screen is…on the left side is Visual Studio 2015,…and on the right side is Visual Studio 2017.…Now I've got the Tools Options dialog open…in both Visual Studios.…So over here, you can see in the Basic node,…there is a Code Style here that just has three items in it.…
Over on the 2017 version, you'll see that Code Style…has a General and a Naming section.…Now the idea behind code styles is that you can…define a set of rules on how you name variables,…or interfaces, or how you work with code,…for instance whether you prefer field access with me…or do not prefer using the me keyword.…You can define these code styles and then…Visual Studio will monitor your code,…and when it finds that you're violating that style,…
