In Nov 11 2011, I released FxCop Integrator 2.0.0 Beta 2. You can download it from CodePlex project site.
FxCop Integrator is a Visual Studio 2010 extension that integrates FxCop to VS2010 and makes it easy to execute FxCop like VS2010 Premium/Ultimate. It also supports to filter code analysis results and shows the FxCop rule detail.
Version 2.0.0 supports to execute Metrics.exe (Visual Studio Code Metrics Power Tools 10.0) and provides some new features.
Visual Studio Code Metrics Power Tools 10.0 Integration
FxCop Integrator 2.0.0 supports to integrate Visual Studio Code Metrics Power Tools 10.0. You can easily execute Metrics.exe on the Solution Explorer.
When you execute code metrics calculation, FxCop Integrator shows calculation result as below.
Because FxCop Integrator supports FxCop and Metrics, I added some menus for executing code analysis.
- [Code Analysis] : Execute both FxCop and Metrics.
- [More Tasks…] > [Inspect XXX] : Execute FxCop only.
- [More Tasks…] > [Calculate Metrics] : Execute Metrics only.
But if you don’t want to use Metrics, you can change the [Code Analysis] menu behavior from option page.
Multi-Project Analysis, File Level Analysis
FxCop Integrator 1.X only supported to analyze all projects in a solution or a single project. But 2.0.0 supports to analyze selected multi-project.
Also you can analyze only some types that are defined in the specified file. This feature can be used when the language of source code is C# or VB.NET. And, this doesn’t support code metrics calculation.
The Suppress Message is added in the Rule Detail window to let developers more easily add a “SuppressMessage” attribute into the code.
Export Code Analysis Result
The [Export] menu is added in the Code Inspection Result window and the Code Metrics Calculation Result window. You can export code analysis result as CSV.
And more improvements and bug fixes.
I’ll release FxCop Integrator 2.0.0 RTW in late November or early December.
