Introduce Constant (local)

Declares a new constant in the member, initialized to the value of the string or number under the caret.

Availability

Available from the context menu or via shortcuts:

  • when the edit cursor, or caret is on a number or string in the code.

Notes

  • This refactoring is equivalent to Introduce Constant. The only difference is that a constant is created within the current method, instead of getting class-wide scope.

Example

public int AddValue(int ValueA)
{
    return ValueA + 25;
}
Public Function AddValue(ByVal ValueA As Integer) As Integer
    Return ValueA + 25
End Function

Result:

public int AddValue(int ValueA)
{
    const int MyConst = 25;
    return ValueA + MyConst;
}
Public Function AddValue(ByVal ValueA As Integer) As Integer
    Const MyConst As Integer = 25
    Return ValueA + MyConst
End Function
