Copy Var Type To Clipboard

Copy the fully qualified type represented by a var to the clipboard

This feature is available in MFractor Professional


The var keyword is a powerful C# langauge element that removes the need to explicitly declare local variable types, improving the readability and maintainability of your code.

However, there are sometimes cases when you need to know the type stored by a var in order to reuse it in other parts of your code base.

To solve this problem, MFractor includes the Copy var type to clipbaord code action to copy the fully qualifed type stored by a var expression to the clipboard..

Using The Code Action

To use the code action, locate a var expression and press Alt+Return or right click and select Quick Fix. In the menu that opens, choose Copy type name to clipboard.
