SharePoint and LightSwitch Support in ReSharper 7
The ReSharper team here at JetBrains has added support for SharePoint and LightSwitch projects to ReSharper 7. Due to how these project types handle generated partial classes, previous versions of ReSharper displayed errors even though the project compiled successfully. By implementing support for these project types in ReSharper 7, ReSharper no longer displays spurious errors allowing developers to be more productive when using these project types. To see the improvements in action, let’s look at a SharePoint project and a LightSwitch project using ReSharper 6.1 and ReSharper 7.
Creating a SharePoint Site Definition project, ReSharper 6.1 displayed 3 errors in one file:
With ReSharper 7, that same project shows no errors:
If you open the LightSwitch Course Manager in Visual Studio, ReSharper 6.1 displayed 170 spurious errors across 16 files:
With ReSharper 7, no errors are displayed:
ReSharper 6.1 couldn’t locate partial methods or certain global LightSwitch-related classes such as
ReSharper 7 can:
ReSharper 6.1 couldn’t locate model partial classes or base classes:
ReSharper 7 can:
Notice that ReSharper 7 provides quick-fixes for unused parameters, superfluous “this” usage, and all the other great features you expect from ReSharper. The SharePoint and LightSwitch enhancements in ReSharper 7 work for both C# and VB.NET projects. SharePoint and LightSwitch developers can now develop with pleasure too!
