C# Structural Code Comparison and Expression-Bodied Members

Post by dczbvd » Fri 22 Dec 2017 08:06

Hi all,

We're using Code Compare for its Structural Code Comparison feature.
We're coding in C# in VS 2015.
The structural code comparison stops analysing at the first expression-bodied members it finds. I guess this is an unhandled way to code.

Here is an example comparison :
We can see in this screenshot that every change is present in Difference Explorer.

If we move the "NewProp" block after the Prop that uses expression-bodied syntax, we can see now that the change is correctly seen as added by Code Compare but does not appear in Difference Explorer anymore...
Image

Do someone else have the problem ?
Do you know a fix for this ? (except by stopping to use expression-bodied members as we have a lot of these in many of our files)

Thank you,

David.

Hi,

Is there any news about this ?
It begins to become a big issue as my team uses a lot of expression-bodied members so the structural code comparison becomes totally unusable...

Thank you,

David Cz.

Hi David,

I apologize for the late answer. I had a lot of tasks on another project (Review Assistant) and didn't have enough time for investigating. Today I have investigated the problem and found the bug in the CSharp Parser in the third-party component. I have forwarded this problem to my team leader and as soon as I get an answer I will contact you (probably tomorrow).

Thank you for the waiting. Product manager added C# 6 support to our backlog. This feature will be available in one of the next versions.

Dear Mstislavs,

Thank you for your investigation.
You say C# 6 support will be available in one of the next versions, do you have an idea of the release planning ?
As I said it is an important issue making this feature unusable. We've renewed our subscriptions 2 months ago and haven't seen any update since so I hope that "one of the next release" won't be in a too far future...

Thank you.

PS : There seem to be a problem with your "New reply notification" in the forum, I didn't receive notification of your post, that explains my late answer...

Hi,

Unfortunately, I cannot provide the exact date of release of the next version. Because now we are working on the next version of Review Assistant and the release of Code Compare is not planned in the nearest future.

Thank you for reporting the problem. I have forwarded this problem to the website development team.

Hi,

As C# 7.1 is available since august 2017, please also include C# 7 support in your next update otherwise it will become useless even with the update...

Do you have any news about a release date ? (Why do we have to pay for yearly subscriptions if you don't make new releases of the soft, even when there is requested features / bugfixes ?)

Thank you,

David Cz.

Hi David,

Today we have published the internal release of Review Assistant. After the Review Assistant release, we plan to make the release of Code Compare. I think we will start working on the new version of Code Compare at the end of April - beginning of May. In any case, I will contact you when we start developing the new version.

Hi,

What are the news about this ? Development has started but when is the release planned ?
I submitted this issue 7 months ago...
As I said, it's a big issue making structural code comparison totally unusable...
You said it's because C# 6 is not yet supported... How can this be possible as C# 6 was released 3 years ago ?
Will C# 7.3 (released in may 2018) be supported only from may 2021 ?

Thank you,

David Cz.

Hi David,

At this moment we have supported C# 6 and 7 for Code Compare and our QA will test this feature. I'll contact with you when I know the release date.
