  • 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.

We published two updates this morning:
  • CodeIt.Right v1.9.10111 - both Standard and Enterprise editions. This is a minor update, primarily bug fixes. Not a required update unless you are experiencing some rule issues or unhandled errors this update might fix.
  • New setup for TestMatrix - we have created a brand new setup for TestMatrix to replace the often confusing "silent" version. New setup experience is very much the same as all our other products. Version hasn't of the product hasn't changed.

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.

This update is free for all users who are current on their Software Assurance and Gold Support Subscription

  • Addressed issues related to incorrect source file encoding when Byte Order Mark (BOM) attribute was missing.
  • New Rules:
    • Abstract class should have at least one derive class (Design)
    • Interface should have at least one implementation (Design)
    • Project should have AssemblyInfo file (Design)
    • Do not place assembly attributes outside of AssemblyInfo file (Design)

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!

This update is free for all users who are current on their Software Assurance and Gold Support Subscription

  • Compatible with VS2010
  • C# 4.0 and VB10 syntax support
    • Automatically Implemented Properties (VB.NET)
    • Generic Variance (VB.NET)
    • Multi-line lambda expressions that can contain statements (VB.NET)
    • Implicit line continuation (VB.NET)
    • Dynamic lookup (C#) - (the "dynamic" type)
    • Named and Optional parameters (C#)

  • Added T4 template based rules

    • Rule "Externally visible types and members should have XML comments" has been rewritten as a template based rule and is customizable now
    • Added Global Properties tab in Options - user configured properties to be used with the T4 templates
  • Spell-checking rules
    • Significantly improved performance, now suggested spellings lookup is only performed when the the Correction Options dropdown is clicked
    • Spell-checking rules - improved performance when use a secondary (non-English) dictionary
    • Spell-checking rules - renamed en_US.usr to complang.usr
  • Further improved ASP.NET support - rename refactoring now also corrects the ASP.NET page HTML markup server tag IDs and attributes
  • Context menus Check All, Clear All and Correct Checked are now context specific when clicked on file or project lines in the violations list
  • Improved performance for Check All, Clear All, Exclude Rule and Exclude File

  • more bug fixes

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.

This CodeIt.Right rule update includes fixes as well as 3 new security rules.

New rules:

  • Do not declare read only mutable reference types (Security)
  • Seal methods that satisfy private interfaces (Security)
  • Secure GetObjectData overrides (Security)

These rules are included with the default profile and you will only need to follow the wizard to merge them into your custom profiles.

Fixes:

  • Rule "Do not override operator equals on reference types" incorrectly triggered violation for the "Equals" method. Now this rules only reports violation for the operator "==" override.
  • Fixed "If the type is a generic type, CIR adds the apostrophe-count string to the class name for the deserialization constructor"
  • Fixed "If there is no explicit default parameterless constructor, adding the deserialization constructor causes errors in all derived classes that called the parameterless constructor"

As a reminder, this set of rules is distributed using the Rule AutoUpdate feature which triggers 15 minutes after you start Visual Studio. If you turned the feature off, you can manually start the update wizard from the CodeIt.Right/Help & Support/Update Rules menu.

New CodeIt.Right rule posted:

  • Externally visible types and members should have XML comments (General)

This rule makes sure all Public and Protected members and types have XML documentation comment.

AutoCorrect option for this rule is 'Add XML comment template' which will add

(for VB)

    ''' <summary>
    '''     
    ''' </summary>
    ''' <value>
    '''     <para>
    '''         
    '''     </para>
    ''' </value>
    ''' <remarks>
    '''     
    ''' </remarks>

(for C#)

    /// <summary>
    ///     
    /// </summary>
    /// <value>
    ///     <para>
    ///         
    ///     </para>
    /// </value>
    /// <remarks>
    ///     
    /// </remarks>

(actual content of the template will depend of the code element the XML template are being added to).

This set of rules is distributed using the Rule AutoUpdate feature added into the Beta 2 of CodeIt.Right. Auto Update triggers in 15 minutes after you start Visual Studio. If you turned the feature off you can manually start the update wizard from the CodeIt.Right/Help & Support/Update Rules menu.

We published new Beta build of CodeIt.Right - added new rule, a number of UI improvements and bug fixes. Give it a try.

We will be rather quiet for two weeks - Misha is traveling up here to Seattle for the Microsoft MVP Global Summit. We both will be busy with the Summit and events around it. Misha is very excited about the trip - this is his first time in Seattle and United States. We both will take few days off and go ski at Crystal Mount. We've worked hard getting CodeIt.Right Beta out and certainly going to enjoy the time off - just to rejuvenate before we jump on the next set of improvements :)

That doesn't mean we will go incommunicado - there will be no new CodeIt.Right builds for two weeks that's all. We are leaving two developers in the shop and Stuart as usually will be on the top of the support issues. I will make sure I follow up on support cases at least every other day.

Changes in build 1.0.07066:

  • ADDED: Progress window for parsing code, loading references and running code analysis
  • ADDED: Progress window the Correct Checked operation
  • FIXED: Disabled Naming rules for ASPX type names
  • FIXED: Issue with concurrent access when caching references
  • FIXED: Resolved issues when CodeIt.Right installed under an Andministator account and used under a User or Restricted User account
  • ADDED: SkipOnCheckAll propery to the IRule interface (for Custom Rules)
  • ADDED: Text description to most of the toolbar buttons
  • IMPROVED: Unhandled exception logging
  • FIXED: "NullReferenceException" when the "Show Analysis Window" toolbar button clicked
  • ADDED: Separate tree branch in New Project/New Item for CodeIt.Right Custom Rule Library and Wizard in VS2003 and VS2005
  • CHANGED: Excluded modifier "Extern" in most rules in built-in profile
  • ADDED: New rule "DoNotRethrowExceptionsExplicitly"
  • FIXED: Bug in the "DoNotRaiseReservedExceptionTypes" rule
  • other fixes

New build of CodeIt.Right Beta is available for download

Change list:

  • IMPROVED: Windows Vista compatibility. CodeIt.Right still requires you run VS2005 "As Administrator" but so is VS2005 itself. We all hope that expected soon VS2005 SP1 update for Vista will help to address the Vista issues for Visual Studio
  • FIXED: Now compatible with 64 bit versions of Windows.
  • ADDED: Auto-generated Designer.cs and Designer.vb files are now ignored
  • FIXED: Rule "Types that own disposable fields should be disposable" ignores static classes
  • FIXED: setup doesn't run "devenv.exe /setup" - install/uninstall speed improved, resolves issues related to resetting 3rd-party VS Add-In custom settings and re-enabling disabled Add-Ins.

We are still working on the memory use optimization.

NOTE: Please take a look at the Flash presentations as they help to understand CodeIt.Right better.

Build 1.0.07040 can be downloaded here - http://submain.com/download/codeit.right
