ReSharper C++: Keep Code Consistent with Syntax Style

ReSharper C++: Keep Code Consistent with Syntax Style

ReSharper C++ 2021.1 adds another powerful tool to your code style toolbox – a new collection of syntax style settings.

One of the main benefits of using a developer tool such as ReSharper C++ is that it helps you maintain a consistent code style throughout your code. ReSharper C++ already provides a rich set of features, including a configurable code formatter, naming style settings, sorting of #include directives, and many others. ReSharper C++ 2021.1 adds another powerful tool to your code style toolbox – a new collection of syntax style settings.

Let’s take a look at the new syntax style settings in ReSharper C++ in detail. And please feel free to go ahead and try them out!

Syntax style

While the code formatting settings control only the way your code looks, the idea behind syntax style settings is to let you configure the aspects of code style that govern the use of various C++ language constructs, which often can be used interchangeably. You can find all the new options on the Code Editing | C++ | Syntax Style options page.

One typical example is the usage of the auto specifier. The choice of when to use auto is often a personal preference. Some people prefer to always have the explicit type in their code for better readability. Others are proponents of the Almost Always Auto style, which favors widespread auto usage. Regardless of which approach you take, it helps when all the members of the team are on the same page and use the chosen preference consistently throughout the entire codebase.

With syntax style settings, you can configure your code style preferences – just select the required option from the drop-down list on the Syntax Style options page. The preview panel immediately shows how the current value of the setting will affect your code.

Just like with other ReSharper settings, you can share your syntax style configuration with your team, thereby enforcing a style between all members of the team that is consistent.
