I find myself quite often creating "shallow" (or poco) classes, up to 10 fields, that should have properties and normally one default and one "complete" constructor.
set of private fields:
private string service;
easy step to a constructor:
by copying from the ctor signature I come to a constructor body:
Final step is to achieve:
this.service = service;
Everything above the final step is very straight forward. The final step was contradicting with my laziness when I was doing copy and paste line by line.
As it was a weekend day, I decided to take a look into VS2005 find and replace capacities.
My first impression even was that I can't use substituting groups in the Replace. Opening the help for this I saw - VS2005 has got regular expressions with its own twist :).
My expressions then to achieve the final step are:
this.\1 = \1;
Is not this different from the regex syntax? I wonder what is the story behind those differences :).
P.S Another sample:
Change method name and add an extra parameter to the method call:
