Reformat Code... Options should persist

The settings, Advanced, should persist... it's annoying to have to click
advanced and re-set them on each re-format.

The new dialog is not an improvement. Advanced should probably be replaced
with More/Less type button. If you click More it should remember to open up
the additional settings on future invocations.

I don't like that you removed options for all files in project and all files
in solution from the Reformat Code dialog either. Can you put them back? It
is nice to have Reformat Code on context menu for projects and solutions.

Best,

Why do you need the removed options? Why not use invoke "Reformat Code" on
solution/project node?

Of the following 2 issues... persistent reformat options is more annoying as
I reformat current file many time throughout the day. I reformat
project/solution less often.

Placement of Reformat Code Project/Solution...

Because I consider ctl-alt-F as my interface to Reformat code... it is now
more cumbersome than in previous versions. I have to go to different places
depending on what I'm doing. Not good.

Lack of Persistent Reformat Code Options...

Options under Advanced should persist across Reformat invocations. It is
very annoying that they don't persist... cause I like to use it so often :)

Typical usage of Reformat code shouldbe_ ctl-alt-F, Enter. It should not
be ctl-alt-F, click Advanced, 5+ clicks to set options, Enter.

Question...

Why do you see the placement of reformat project/solution mutually exclusive
from the Reformat code dialog?

Seems like ctl-alt-F or project/solution context node should both display
the same Reformat code dialog... the only difference is setting for Current
file, Project or Solution radio button.

There will be no Advanced button at all. The dialog will be redesigned.

Hey Valentin,

Sounds good to me. Here's another try at the last part...

As I understand you... you think that the Reformat Code dialog should not
have option to reformat project/solution (i.e. radio buttons for 1) current
file, 2) files in project, 3) files in solution). You think the option to
reformat project/solution should only be available on the project/solution
nodes in the Solution Explorer.

I see ctl-alt-F as my interface to Reformat Code... therefore I'd like the
radio buttons in the Reformat Code dialog. [note: I'm not suggesting you
remove the project/solution context menuitems]

So, whether you use ctl-alt-F or Solution Explorer context menu... you get
the same Reformat Code dialog... only difference is how the scope is
defaulted (current file for ctl-alt-F, project for project node, solution
for solution node).

Clearer?

/jhd

Yes, it's clearer now. But You may select project/solution node in the
explorer and use Ctrl-Alt-F shortcut. No need to use the popup menu. What's
wrong with that?

Selecting the project/solution in explorer view is a lot of shortcuts/arrow
keys or worse yet I have to take my hands off the keyboard and use the
mouse... this is evil ;)

I typically reformat the project/solution as part of my check-in/commit
process. Therefore I, almost, always have a source window open... so I just
want to do ctl-alt-F, optionally set 1 radio button, and smack Enter.

I suspect you view format project/solution as a different workflow, and it
may well be for some, many, all except me ;) I might occasionally use the
project/solution node context menu... but I'll use ctl-alt-F 99% of the time
(100% if you put the radio buttons back :D ).

I understand that having to select project/solution node is a bit of unconvinience for you but having radio buttons there really clutters the dialog.

P.S. We'll solve your problem when we have our own IDE. There will be an option to reformat/optimize usings on checking in.

The reformat code dialog is too simple to be cluttered with a single widget
to select scope.

I understand that having to select project/solution node is a bit of

unconvinience for you but having radio buttons there really clutters the
dialog.

P.S. We'll solve your problem when we have our own IDE. There will be an

Selecting the project/solution in explorer view is a lot of
shortcuts/arrow keys or worse yet I have to take my hands off the
keyboard and use the mouse... this is evil ;)

I typically reformat the project/solution as part of my
check-in/commit process. Therefore I, almost, always have a source
window open... so I just want to do ctl-alt-F, optionally set 1 radio
button, and smack Enter.

I suspect you view format project/solution as a different workflow,
and it may well be for some, many, all except me ;) I might
occasionally use the project/solution node context menu... but I'll
use ctl-alt-F 99% of the time (100% if you put the radio buttons back
:D ).

widget to select scope.


I didn't mean the absolute size of the dialog. More controls is worse. Especially for novice users. I do not think many users needed the scope chooser there (I may be wrong though).
