Naming Conventions

Plugin has interface that allows you to specify what naming rules should be applied to certain declarations.

Naming rules include

  • Obligatory prefixes
  • Obligatory suffixes
  • Prefixes that should be avoided.
  • Suffixes that should be avoided.
  • Casing rules: Camel, Pascal, Uppercase.
  • Regular Expression rules.
  • Declaration to which a naming rule applies is identified by one or more matching rules. In Matching rule following can be specified:

  • Declaration type.
  • Visibility
  • Attribute declaration is marked with.
  • Base class of interface (for classes and interfaces).
  • For a naming rule also non matching rules can be specified in similar way.

    For each kind of rule plugin highlights incorrect declaration and suggests quickfixes(except regular expressions).

    XML comment validation

    Agent Smith can check that certain declaration have xml comments, perform spell checking of XML comments and suggest quick fixes (Word suggestions, Replace with <see cref...). It also contains flexible configuration interface.


    Smart paste

    Agent Smith performs spell checking of

  • XML comments
  • C# string literals
  • C# identifiers. Identifiers are split by camel humps and checked against dictionary.
  • Resource files (it can automatically choose appropriate dictinary depending on resource file extension)
  • and suggests quick fixes (Word suggestions, Replace with <see cref...). Open Office dictionaries can be imported so a few languages are virtually supported.

    Smart paste

    If you are smart pasting a text into XML comment Agent Smith will insert '///' characters at line breaks and optionally escape XML reserved characters. If you are smart pasting into a string literal Agent Smith will escape string characters correspondingly.
