Lazarus IDE refactoring
« on: February 15, 2024, 11:57:14 pm »
Does this feature not exist?
This feature is very useful and is used in many IDE's and I am surprised that it is not available in Lazarus.
It's probably such a trivial situation that it isn't even mentioned and I'm the one who can't find it.
I Googled for this and found nothing but vague stuff.
For example, replacing something as simple as the name of a variable in all files that are part of the project.

Which of them? There are hundreds, maybe thousands of refactoring methods. E.g. "rename variable" is a refactoring https://refactoring.com/catalog/renameVariable.html

In Lazarus you can find some of them in the menu "Source", or in the context menu of the source editor. Both have a submenu called "Refactoring"

There are however many other feature of the IDE that also can be used for refactoring.

Gosh... I can't believe it didn't occur to me to look there.

That can be done with a shortcut F2 when your editor cursor is on the variable name.
Mostly Lazarus trunk and FPC 3.2 on Manjaro Linux 64-bit.

OK, didn't know that F2 also worked for that.
Have used Ctrl+Shigt+E for that feature ever since that feature existed (and I use Lazarus)......

Interesting. I didn't know about Ctrl+Shift+E.

That comes from Delphi. Since D2005.
bitrate is always calculated like this:sample rate * bitdepth * number of channels.

That's also about the last time I touched a copy of Delphi. Coincidence? ;)
