Members Declaration

  • 2 min to read

Templates library includes multiple templates for quick member declaration. These templates are available when the caret is inside a class body, but outside methods and properties. Most member declaration templates are complex and consist of two parts — the kind of member and its type. The table below shows examples of member declaration templates.

Member Kind void Boolean Integer Double String Object
Method m mb mi md ms mo
Property pb pi pd ps po
Auto-implemented Property ab ai ad as ao
Field fb fi fd fs fo

The full list of member declaration templates is available in the code templates configuration options.

Note

If you need to force the creation of a static member, Uppercase the first letter of the required template. For example, the "Ms" template creates the static method that returns a string.
