Split Initialization From Declaration

Purpose

This Refactoring is used when the variable is declared and initialized in the same statement. It breaks this statement into two lines: separates the initialization from declaration. It is useful for conditional initialization, or when you need to widen the scope of the declaration.

Availability

Available when the caret is on a variable name in the statement where it is declared and initialized.

Usage

  1. Place the caret on a variable name in its initialized declaration.

    Note

    The blinking cursor shows the caret's position at which the Refactoring is available.

    double a = 1.42;
    
  2. Use the Ctrl + . or Ctrl + ~ shortcut to invoke the Code Actions Menu.
  3. Select Split Initialization From Declaration from the menu.

After execution, the Refactoring moves the variable initialization to the separate statement.

double a;
a = 1.42;
