Description Lluis Sanchez 2011-09-19 14:25:18 UTC
Bug/feature request in Monodevelop 2.6 in the refactoring function: pick a class from your code and use the context menu Refactor->Rename. It renames correctly but the class'es constructor(s) won't be renamed. Studio does that and I think MD should behave the same way.

Seems to work in 2.8 / 2.6 - can you give me a use case where that fails ?

My test case was:

public class MyClass
	public MyClass ()
	public MyClass (int i)
	public MyClass (int i, string j)

Hover over MyClass - all constructors & declaration is highlighted. And rename works for me on any constructor + class declaration.

Tested on 2.6 final + 2.8 master.

@"rene@brainloop.com" : Any infos on that ?

I tried to reproduce it but of course it is working now... You can close the bug. I'll reopen it in case I find a way to consistently reproduce it.

kk closing that. Expect that it works generally better in 2.8 since 2.8 contains numerous parser fixes.

(however 2.8 won't be as good as 2.10 :))

This bug exists in newresolver. The testcase in comment 1 demonstrates the issue.
