Description Stephen Shaw 2012-07-17 12:45:49 UTC
In a mono for android app I was trying to rename:
Context _context;
Context Context; (so that I could get rid of the variable)

When I hit command-r it highlighted each instance as expected, but also renamed a using statement and one of the interfaces before I started typing anything.

For example,
it renamed something like Android.Views.View.Something to Android.V_contex.ew.Something with the _context highlighted.

I haven't been able to track down a decent test case as this doesn't normally happen.

A test case would help - just renaming a _context identifier seems to work.

I have some like problem. When i try rename some variable, context menu -> re-factoring -> rename, very often another text is broken in different place. Example of code:
		treeviewLessees.AppendColumn("Код", new Gtk.CellRendererText (), "text", 0);
		treeviewLessees.AppendColumn("Название", new Gtk.CellRendererText (), "text", 1);
		treeviewLessees.AppendColumn("Директор", new Gtk.CellRendererText (), "text", 2);
		treeviewLessees.AppendColumn("Товары", new Gtk.CellRendererText (), "text", 4);
		treeviewLessees.AppendColumn("Опт", new Gtk.CellRendererToggle (), "active", 5);
		treeviewLessees.AppendColumn("Розница", new Gtk.CellRendererToggle (), "active", 6);

If i click on treeviewLessees and select rename, all these string is broken.

I use build of 3.1 from git code, in openSUSE from repository home:dirk-s:Mono

Works for me in our internal version.
