Duplicate Line

  • 2 minutes to read

The Duplicate line tool is useful when you need to create similar lines in the code. For instance, you are going to declare a number of string fields. You can declare each field manually, but that will take too much time. The other method is to create a single declaration, and duplicate it with Duplicate Line. Place the cursor on the line to be duplicated, and press SHIFT+ENTER. CodeRush Classic will duplicate the line and select the field name in the new line.


Available Duplications
