Class Renaming Options 

Visual Studio 2005

Several options exist for class renaming. You may:

  • Specify classes to be renamed while keeping their namespace membership (keepnamespace)
  • Rename namespace names while preserving namespace hierarchy (keephierarchy)
  • Rename completely, removing the notion of namespace (default).

 <option>keepnamespace</option>

 <!-- Preserves namespace hierarchy but rename --> 
 <!-- namespace names -->
 <option>keephierarchy</option>
