Rename / Find all references RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I try to rename an identifier (any identifier) using the refactoring option in the context menu the IDE suddenly disappears (no error /watson dialog asking me to send a report to MS, nothing, the IDE suddenly disappears). This also happens when I try to find all references of an identifier (using the context menu).

    The behaviour is the same for Beta 2 Std Edition and Beta 2 Express Edition.

    Strangely enough  I can rename a class if I rename its corresponding file (and the file's name corresponds to the class's name).

    I've installed Refactor! for VB to see if their Rename works, but the option never appears (I put their "Rename" button on the command bar as well, but it is always grey).

  • Hi Rolf,

    The first part of your post sounds like a bug.  However, I am not able to repro it.  (The IDE does not disappear when I try to rename an identifier in my project.)

    Can you please report the bug at our Ladybug Product Feedback Center?: http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/productfeedback/.  Please include whatever info you can about your project and the specific repro steps.

    I'm glad to hear that you've installed Refactor!.  This Rename option is not available in Beta2, but will be in the final product.  So, you can look forward to seeing it then.
