  • VS2017 RC integration
  • Official support for VS2015 Update 3 and ASP.NET 5/ASP.NET Core 1.0 solutions

  • New rules

For the complete and detailed list of the v3.0 changes see What's New in CodeIt.Right v3.0


Solution Filtering

The solution filtering feature allows to narrow the code review scope to using the following options:

  • Analyze files modified Today/This Week/Last 2 Weeks/This Month – so you can set the relative date once and not have to change the date every day
  • Analyze files modified since specific date
  • Analyze files opened in Visual Studio tabs
  • Analyze files checked out from the source control
  • Analyze only specific files – only include the files that match a list of file patters like *Core*.cs or Modules\*. See this KB post for the file path patterns details and examples.

cir-v3-solution-filtering

New Review Code commands

We have changed the Start Analysis menu to Review Code – still the same feature and the new name is just highlighting the automated code review nature of the product. Also added the following Review Code commands:

  • Analyze Open Files menu - analyze only the files opened in Visual Studio tabs
  • Analyze Checked Out Files menu - analyze only files that that are checked out from the source control

cir-v3-profile-filterImproved Profile Editor

The Profile Editor now features

  • Advanced rule filtering by rule id, title, name, severity, scope, target, and programming language
  • Allows to quickly show only active, only inactive or all rules in the profile
  • Shows totals for the profile rules - total, active, and filtered
  • Improved adding rules with multiple categories

 

Summary Report

The Summary Report tab provides an overview of the analyzed source code quality, it includes the high level summary of the current analysis information, filters, violation summary, top N violation, solution info and metrics. Additionally it provides detailed list of violations and excludes.

The report is self-contained – no external dependencies, everything it requires is included within the html file. This makes it very easy to email the report to someone or publish it on the team portal – see example.

cir-v3-summary-report-part

The Summary Report is based on an ASP.NET Razor markup within the Summary.cshtml template. This makes it very easy for you to customize it to your needs.

You will find the summary report API documentation in the help file – CodeIt.Right –> Help & Support –> Help –> Summary Report API.

Note to GhostDoc Pro v4 users: The v4 licenses won’t work with the v5. We have sent out the v5 license codes to users with License Protection and active Software Assurance subscription. If you have not received or misplaced your new license, you can retrieve it on the My Account page. See more information at the bottom of this post.

Both Pro and Enterprise editions of GhostDoc in version 5 introduce Documentation Quality hints in Visual Studio editor; Documentation Management assistance - find auto-generated comments, edit or remove the bulk created docs; identify and fix comments that are missing, out of sync or can be copied from base class; mark generated XML comments as auto-generated and "to be edited". The v5 also includes multiple Help documentation themes and layouts to choose from.

The free version of GhostDoc has been re-branded as GhostDoc Community Edition and adds general improvements, limited generation of CHM help documentation as well as the means to find auto-generated comments.

GD_v5_new_commands

The new menu commands

  • Documentation Quality Hints in Visual Studio editor
  • Documentation Maintenance - Find auto-generated comments - edit or remove the bulk created docs
  • Documentation Maintenance - Identify and fix comments that are missing, out of sync or can be copied from base class
  • Theme support for generated help documentation and new themes - Flat Gray and Flat Main
  • Official Visual Studio 2015 support
  • Options to add Auto-generated doc and TODO 'Edit' attributes
  • Option to have the default summary text focused and selected when using Document This command - allows to edit/override the summary quickly
  • Exclude from Documentation action – marks a member with a tag to exclude it from the help documentation
  • Hide/Show Comments feature – an easy way to expand/collapse documentation comments to minimize the XML Comments footprint in the Visual Studio code editor
  • New Summary Override table in Options - configure predefined summaries for specific member or type names instead of auto-generated
  • A basic Build Documentation feature is now available in the Community Edition of GhostDoc – while quite limited and watermarked, yet allows to produce simple CHM help documentation for personal use without paying for the commercial version

For the detailed list of v5.0 changes see What’s New in GhostDoc v5.

To see new features by product edition see this page - http://submain.com/ghostdoc/editions/


Documentation Quality Hints

This new feature provides real-time visual hints in the Visual Studio Editor window to highlight members which have documentation issues that require attention.

GD_v5_maint_hints

The following documentation hint actions included with this release make it very easy to maintain the documentation quality:

GD_v5_maint_hints_list


Documentation Maintenance

This feature will help you identify missing documentation, find auto-generated XML comments, maintain your documentation, and keep it up to date. Once these are found, GhostDoc provides the tools to edit or remove the bulk created docs, add missing or fix the dated documentation – one by one or as a batch. You can fine tune the search criteria and use your own template library if yours is different from the built-in.

  • Find auto-generated docs and edit or remove them
  • Find and fix members that are missing documentation
  • Discover members that have parameters, return types, and type parameters out of sync with the existing XML comments and fix the comments
  • Find members that can have XML docs copied from the base class
  • Find documentation that require editing

GD_v5_maint_autogen

The Community Edition only allows to find auto-generated documentation and not batch actions – only one action at a time.


Help Documentation Themes

In the v5 we are introducing theme support for the generated help documentation and including two new themes, The old help doc view preserved as the Classic theme. You can see the new theme preview here - Flat Gray (default) and Flat Main.

The Enterprise Edition users can modify the existing themes or create and deploy own help documentation themes – now easier than ever!

The Community Edition theme selection is limited to one – Classic.

GD_v5_help_sample


Auto-generated doc and TODO 'Edit' attributes

The option to add tag to XML comment is intended to provide an explicit flag that the comment has been generated automatically.

The option to add a TODO comment “TODO Edit XML Comment Template for {member name}” which in turn adds a TODO task into the Visual Studio Task List –> Comments as a reminder for the auto-generated comment requires editing.

GD_v5_autogen_todo

Both flags can be used as additional criteria for the documentation quality hints and documentation management “Find auto-generated Documentation” feature. When generating help documentation these flags are also accounted for – the flagged members can be included, ignored or highlighted in the final docs.


Summary Override

The Summary Override table allows to configure predefined summaries for specific member or type names to be used instead of the auto-generated. We ship some predefined summary overrides and you are welcome to add your own. If you find a summary override that the GhostDoc user community can benefit of, please submit it to us to be reviewed for the inclusion.

gd45_TemplateLibrary

Template Libraries

While GhostDoc Pro T4 template mechanism provides maximum flexibility how you can tweak and reconfigure your XML Comments and even regular comments, until now there was no easy way to share the set of templates with your team or the community.

Today we are introducing Template Libraries - you can Export the whole set of your custom templates and distribute it as one file which can be imported. Template Library includes meta-data - the library author, company name and contact information. To access the feature use Options -> Rules -> Export.

We will be hosting a section on our web site where we publish GhostDoc Pro Template Libraries we release. If you have specific comment formats you want us to release, send your requests in.

We also want to encourage sharing your templates with the community. Contact us if you have template library you was us to publish.

gd45_HelpFormats

New Help File Formats and Options

When we introduced a simple single click way of generating help file from your project XML comments, we realized that just one CHM format is not enough and we would need to add options to tweak your help file output.

Today GhostDoc Pro can build into the following help file formats:

  • Html Help1 (.CHM)
  • MS Help 2 (.HxS)
  • MS Help Viewer aka MS Help 3 (.MSHC)
  • Website (HTML, ASP.NET, PHP)

You also have the following options when building help file with GhostDoc Pro:

  • Select solution projects that you want to be included into the help file
  • Define Header and Footer for the help file pages
  • Decide whether you want to include Private, Internal, Protected members

Today we are releasing new version of CodeIt.Right - build 1.8.09300.

This version features complete ASP.NET support, it is compatible with VS2010 Beta 2 (in addition to VS2008, VS2005, VS2003), Add Rule dialog improvements - "Hide Rules in the Profile" and "Quick Search", 10+ new rules including new category "CodingStyle".

Those of you who are using CodeIt.Right with very large solutions may know of the memory limitation issue for the tools that live in the Visual Studio address space, aka "Out of Memory" exceptions. You will be excited to know we have addressed the issue in this version by introducing new "Memory Optimization" mode. The "Performance mode" is still on by default since it offers a little faster analysis but CodeIt.Right will offer to switch to the "Memory Optimization" option when you open a large solution or get the dreaded "Out of Memory" exception. You also are free to switch between the options manually.

Another change we made - we removed Sealed modifier for all built-in rules. This gives you even easier way to extend and customize existing rules by simply overriding just the methods you wanted changed. See Tutorial: Extending Existing Rules for a sample.

As you may know yesterday Microsoft released VS2010 Beta 1 to MSDN Subscribers. The Beta will also be publicly available for the rest of the world on Wednesday. This is long expected and very exciting new version of Visual Studio; and we here at SubMain are fully prepared to support the new shiny version!

While some companies make a big deal posting screenshots of the upcoming VS2010 versions and announcing availability of previews for their products within a month, we at SubMain have been working hard to give our customers a new fully VS2010 compatible version on the day of VS2010 Beta 1 release!

So ... today, within the 24 hours of the VS2010 Beta 1 availability, you can download new version of CodeIt.Right that runs in VS2010 (as well as VS2008, VS2005, VS2003) and fully understands the syntax changes in C# 4.0 and VB10! This is just of the many new features that come with this release - you can see the long list below.

With the VS2010's multi-monitor support and CodeIt.Right allows for even better performance as you keep violations up on one monitor while review source code and the changes on the other monitor.

Another great feature added in this version is the template based rules. We currently support T4 templates. The template based rules are simpler and more flexible alternative to writing custom rules using CodeIt.Right SDK.

Click for a full-sized image

Over the next couple of weeks we will be adding a tutorial on how to use and customize T4 templates in CodeIt.Right. Ping us if you want this sooner.

Give it a shot and let us know what you think!

Known issues

We are releasing the product with one known issue this time for it is very minor.

  • Under VS2010 Beta 1 CodeIt.Right rule documentation links, like "More", "Tell me more..." don't work. This feature depends on the Visual Studio offline help module which was not shipped with VS2010 Beta 1. You still can use Rule Help in the Profile Editor. Rule documentation help works fine in VS2008, VS2005 and VS2003.

As promised last week, new version of PrettyCode.Print for .NET is now available for download. The new version adds support for .NET Framework 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008 as well as many bug fixes since the last release.

Although v2.0 (technically) marks a major version update, the upgrade is still free for current users. Here at SubMain we like to keep things simple :) Enjoy!

CodeIt.Right is finally finished after about 3 years in the making. That's right, CodeIt.Right is Released! It is out in its all new shiny package :)

I would like to make a pause here and extend my deepest gratitude towards everyone who helped make this release possible. From the SubMain development team, the advisory board members, to everyone who participated in the community and contributed feedback over the year since we released the first public beta.

CodeIt.Right, my 7 years long dream come true. The tool it out! Cheers! (I truly believe that code analysis coupled with automatic refactoring will change the way .NET developer teams and solo developers work!)

With the touchy-feely stuff out of the way, let's get back to the actual product, shall we? :)

If you are new to CodeIt.Right:

What's next?

This not a road map per se, just highlights of where we are heading with CodeIt.Right over the next months:

  • We will keep publishing new rules as they are developed and will push them to you using the Auto-Update feature
  • We will publish more tutorials and how tos on using the product and developing your own custom rules using CodeIt.Right SDK
  • Create community section over at http://community.submain.com and allow custom developed rules shared with other users
  • Version v1.1 is coming in 4-6 weeks - .NET 3.5 syntax, merging profiles, Pivot View improvements, generating team guidelines document template from profile, and of course, more rules!
  • Version v2.0 is preliminarily scheduled for summer 2008 and will introduce VSTS integration and manual refactorings (we will merge CodeIt.Once into CodeIt.Right)

So, don't wait, go ahead, download CodeIt.Right - http://submain.com/download/codeit.right - play with it, explore the rules included in the box, get out of the box and try developing your own custom rules, share them, ask questions, tell us what you think!
