Using predefined rule sets.

To get more accurate result of analyse you can select one of the OOTB rule set. Please read more about rule set list here.

From Aprile 2014 release we provided our own rule set - Community.spruleset file. It is focused on the C# developers and architectors. You can modify it anyhow or use it as example to create new one. Just to remember, any ruleset file contains ONLY prohibited items (categories by name or rules by CheckId). See installation details on the download page to get it work. To select it in Visual Studio do follow: click.png Rule_Set_Selection.png

ReSharper plugin

Using ReSharper you have an online validation of code, markup, xml and javascript. Once installed the SPCAFContrib plugin pay your attention on the problems in SharePoint API usage, potential performance issues, invalid xml tags and others. Code inspection is performed automatically in design time for all files opened in the editor. Depends on issue severity level the problem text is highlighted in different ways and corresponded color marks are added to the marker bar. Mostly each of highlightings has a quick fix action (look as a bulb). And you can apply this fix on the current file, current folder or project or whole solution.


Bulk action

Like SPCAF ReSharper can analyse whole solution and expose list of incidents in the separate windows: "Inspection results" and "Solution wide error analyse".


Unfortunatelly currently it is not supported for XML and JS files. You need to open its in the Visual Studio editor and check marker bar.

How to change rule severity in the ReSharper?
1 approach:
  1. Open ReSharper | Option dialog and select Code Inspection | Inspection Severity
  2. Click on the SPCAF Contrib title
  3. Click on the colored box with curent severity level.

2 approach:

How can I read more about highlighting?
Open context menu, select Options for "name of issue" and select "Why is SPCAF Contrib suggestion this?". The help page will be opened immediatelly in the browser.

You can read more about ReSharper code inspection here.

How can I do something more with ReSharper?
Read this article to know about live templates.

Where I can find the quick access key map in for ReSharper?
Check out this guide (PDF).

How can I enable/disable ReSharper code analysis for specific files?
  • Ctrl-8 for the current file, for the current session.
  • Ctrl-Alt-8 for disabling Resharper code analysis.

Suggested new rules and metrics

Please consider starting a new issue here to let us know about that.


Few things about CheckId generation.

List of excluded libraries

Some time we need to eliminate 3-rd party assembly from analyse. Currently there are follow exceptions:
  • Aspose.*.dll
  • Telerik.*.dll
  • System.*.dll
  • Microsoft.*.dll
  • DocumentFormat.OpenXml.dll
  • ClosedXml.dll
  • NVelocity.dll
  • Camlex.NET.dll
  • AjaxControlToolkit.dll
If you want to add your own assembly to list above please be free to post it name to us.

You can configure lists of ignored files using regular expression or wildcards in the ReSharper | Options dialog.
