In-method regions are shown within Spade.

Steps to recreate

  1. Use a class file with in-method regions such as:
namespace ClassLibrary2
    internal class Issue272

        #region Public Methods

        public int AMethod()
            #region Declarations

            int x = 5;

            #endregion Declarations

            #region Calculations

            int y = x * 2;

            #endregion Calculations

            #region Returns

            return y;

            #endregion Returns

        #endregion Public Methods
  1. Look at the file within Spade and note that the in-method regions show up beneath the method.

Current behavior

In-method regions are shown.

Expected behavior

In-method regions should not be shown.

I have a proposed fix for this so that regions inside methods will be ignored. This will be available momentarily in our CI channel (v10.0.84 or higher) if anyone would like to test it:

Hi codecadwallader,
Bravo for your work.
I use only Spade because i was using VsCommands for VS 2010 File Structure. So i get used to see the structure of each file right the way it is coded (file order) for 3 years ! With public only properties, region, methods.... Recently i had to move to VS 2012 (i cant remember why) and the extension VsCommands for VS 2012 File Structure is totally useless (all properties are shown, no region...). So like i said it's very hard to change the way we are used to work. I need to see the file order structure because a lot of files in my solution are more than 2000 lines big.
One day i felt on CodeMaid Spade and it was just amazing. The Spade window is almost the way i want.

I want to ask you some questions.

  • Is there a way to show only public properties (because i use a lot of mvvminpc properties) / methods / region) / region in methods ? (maybe with a !suffix / suffix or the key word private)
  • Is there a way to Spade to keep the collapse/expand the way i leave it ? Because it's annoying when i do some code or switch to en other file and then Spade reload the entire structure and expand all.
  • In this previous example, if i click to many times during the refresh, VS 2012 can freeze. I have to reboot the solution. I'm pretty sure it's CodeMaid fault because the Spade window seems to do some infinite loop or something and i think VS is waiting for it.

Thanks for your job and your reply

@FlouFlou To avoid confusing other users, please create a new issue for your questions instead of commenting on an old unrelated issue. As a quick response to your questions: No, Yes (default), and try resetting to default settings (known issue if you override some 'skip' options in VS2012).
