Remove Empty Handler

Removes an empty event handler along with the event handler assignment.

Availability

Available from the context menu or via shortcuts:

  • when the edit cursor or caret is on an empty method that handles an event.
Note

This refactoring is only available in Windows Forms applications.

Example

class TestClass
{
    public TestClass()
    {
        TestButton = new Button();
        TestButton.Click += TestButton_Click;   
    }
    public Button TestButton;
    private void TestButton_Click(Object Sender, EventArgs e)
    {

    }
}
Class TestClass
    Public Sub New()
        TestButton = New Button()
    End Sub
    Friend WithEvents TestButton As Button
    Private Sub TestButton_Click(ByVal Sender As Object, _
        ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles TestButton.Click

    End Sub
End Class

Result:

class TestClass
{
    public TestClass()
    {
        TestButton = new Button();
    }
    public Button TestButton;
}
Class TestClass
    Public Sub New()
        TestButton = New Button()
    End Sub
    Friend WithEvents TestButton As Button
End Class
