I may have missed something here but I have not found it. I always like to know what changes are going to be made before anything goes making them. So being able to scan the solution then review the suggested changes would be a must for me.
as a test I created a simple VS2013 MFC application with various classes and code then ran CodeMaid Clean up All Code. The result was then not able to be compiled a CodeMaid removed the EOF character from the end of the .rc2 file, so I would be very fearful of running this on larger projects.
Thanks for the constructive criticism, that is very helpful.
For that specific item with the .rc2 EOF indicator not being on a separate line, Issue #18 opened and resolved for the next minor release. There is a "Remove end of file trailing new line" option that could be disabled in the interim.
I've also placed a card in the backlog to investigate adding integration tests that would iterate across all the different project templates and invoke CodeMaid actions upon them. https://trello.com/c/Sqv2bIWC
First its awesome and second its awesome, very light weight and incredible. But for some reasons it doesn't work on solution level clean-up all. I have mix projects in solution, ASP.NET MVC, Web API, Silverlight, WCF, Windows Service etc.. and total around 50+ projects excluding unit test projects :)... if it work at solution level then save more time for me and save me 50+ individual project level clicks...
VS2013 had a known issue with solution level cleanups being disabled. They fixed it recently with Update 2. If that doesn't do the trick a shortcut is you can multi-select projects and do cleanup on several at once. Also feel free to open a BitBucket issue and we can figure it out if it wasn't the VS update.
Code Maid persistently crashed the GUI for the project I maintain without me using any code maid features. I guess its for hobby use only. Using C++ VS2010 Vista.
The loaded solution consists of 8 legacy programs with origins in VMS consisting mostly of C with Win API with some newer simple C++.
The VS GUI crashed in the following instances: rearranging window positions, selecting class view and while browsing the code before I un-installed it. After un-installing and before installing of code maid there were no VS crashes. I have been using VS 2010 to maintain this code since 2010 without any GUI crashes.
Hello first of all, I want to say thank you, I was using this extension for several years and it was great.
BTW I just figure out lately that it is not removing the unused using statement, this is the first happened to me. so what i did is check the configuration. On the inside the Cleaning->Visual Studio the "Run remove unused using statements" option is check.
I am using the codemaid 0.8.0 on VS2013 update 5
You're welcome, I'm glad you've been enjoying it.
There is an additional clause for removal of unused using statements. By default, it will skip running that operation during an automatic cleanup on save. The reason for this is that when a build, triggers a save, which triggers a cleanup, in some scenarios it could cause Visual Studio to lock up. This was mostly noticed with VS2012, but the default option has been kept the same. If you manually invoke CodeMaid, then by default it will go ahead with removing the unused using statements.
I hope that helps. If it doesn't, can you please open an issue on GitHub along with a minimal code sample? https://github.com/codecadwallader/codemaid/issues
I like the Spade very much but have no need for other features, like the 'popup' after mouse hover over e.g. a property. Is it possible to disable those features and keep just the Spade 'window'? Thanks.
I'm glad to hear you like it. There currently isn't a configuration option specifically for disabling the tool tip, but you could make a custom build by forking the code or requesting it on the public backlog.
Hi, firstly thanks for this excellent extension. It's one of the ones I could hardly live without these days.
I've got a little feature request. I was wondering if CodeMaid could insert spaces after code control-flow block braces. e.g. following if/while/for code blocks.
Thanks, that's really great to hear. :)
We do have that feature request in our backlog, contingent on the Roslyn rewrite (a pretty big effort on the horizon). Check it out and vote it up here: https://trello.com/c/t3ZG4jsB
I really like this Extendion, but for some reason my VS2013 always crashes when trying to apply changes as long as Code Maid is activated.
When I deactivate Code Maid, then I can use Edit+Continue without problems.
This doesn't seems to have anything to do with Formatting, since I saved the Changes before continue.
This doesn't seems to be a Managed Exception
I use VB.Net Projects, and have VS2013 + VS2015 preview installed.
Hi Alexander -
I'm glad you really like CodeMaid. :) That's peculiar behavior you are describing. CodeMaid explicitly checks the IDE state and will not run if you are in debugging mode. If you right click and look at the CodeMaid context options you will see cleanup is not available.
I tried reproducing your issue with a simple VB "Hello World" type application but it did not exhibit any issue like you were describing.
So we can get to the bottom of it, will you open an issue on GitHub (https://github.com/codecadwallader/codemaid/issues) with some steps to reproduce (e.g. this is what the code looks like, I break on this line, make this change and then continue causes the exception).
Thanks for reporting the issue,
Interestingly I had the same issue and never suspected CodeMaid. Eventually I started disabling extensions one by one, and disabling CodeMaid fixed the issue. But so far re-enabling CodeMaid has not reintroduced the issue.
I am using Codemaid v0.3.7 in VS2010 and i want to upgrade it to the latest one. When i try to update, i am getting the error message like "Extension CodeMaid must be uninstalled through the Windows Add/Remove Programs dialog." But i couldn't find any codemaid entries in Windows Add/Remove Programs. Please help me to this and i am very much excited about the update. Please help me...
CodeMaid v0.3.7 is a very old release, about four years ago. Yes, that version would need to be uninstalled from the Control Panel Add/Remove programs dialog.
If you are not seeing in the list, you can also re-run the CodeMaid v0.3.7 installer and choose to 'uninstall'. It is available here: https://bitbucket.org/s_cadwallader/codemaid/downloads/CodeMaid_v0.3.7.zip
Also, you need to be logged in to the same account that as used to do the install. Some more details here: https://bitbucket.org/s_cadwallader/codemaid/issue/93/unable-to-uninstall-previous-version-to
Codemaid does not appear to uninstall from VS2013. I have version v0.7.6 installed and after uninstalling and restarting VS2013, Codemaid menus still show up and all items still working. Something I'm missing ?
It appears that when I choose uninstall that it disables but doesn't remove it. When I think uninstall the second time it is gone from my list (extensions and updates) but still is a menu on vs2013 along with all functionality still working.
I'm glad you got it figured out, but not sure why you were having difficulties. You do need to restart VS for the process to complete, but that's the same VSIX infrastructure and process used by all VS extensions.
