Reference to bug #10717 comment 1

Add an Auto-Fix that simplify blocks of code:
Any lambda with one parameter
$(i) => { ... }
can be simplified to: 
i => {...}
Note: it works just for 1 parameter method
Comment 1 Ciprian Khlud 2013-04-05 18:47:21 UTC
I've made a visitor for lambda expression with parenthesis and it seems that the parser removes paranthesis, so there is basically no way to detect where the extra parenthesis are:

an unit test like this:
var input = @"
class TestClass
        delegate void EventT<T>(T data);
        public void T() {
            EventT<int> a=null;
            a+= (i) => { };
			var output =@"
class TestClass
        delegate void EventT<T>(T data);
        public void T() {
            EventT<int> a=null;
            a+= i => { };
Test<RedundantLambdaParenthesesIssue> (input, 1, output);

And a visitor as minimalist as this one:

public override void VisitLambdaExpression (LambdaExpression expression)

  AddIssue (expression.StartLocation, expression.EndLocation, 
    ctx.TranslateString ("Remove redundant parentheses"),
    script => { script.Replace (expression, expression.Clone ()); } );

would do the job.
