Custom patterns with Resharper are cool. And can help you and your team to make your code more uniform. I know me and my team are using them ;-).
The human brain works in such a way that it will filter out any information it knows or thinks it knows. You know that text without the vowls that you can read without a problem because your brain just knows what should be there. Ths s txt wtht vwls. Pretty sure you can read what I meant there. So the more you make something uniform the faster your brain will be able to skim over a certain text.
Now in NUnit these statements
are the same as these statements
I prefer the bottom one because less code is less bugs (maybe).
So I set about to create custom patterns in Resharper 6.
I made 3.
One for The IsTrue thing.
One for the IsFalse thing
One for the IsEmpty String.
I will now recieve a suggestion saying I should better use IsFalse, IsTrue or IsEmpty where appropriate.
And I can do the Alt+Enter thing.
Rules are important in a team, a way to make it easier to enforce them is helpful.
That does not mean that rules shoud be made into a religion.
