Hello,

I suppose that 'Rename' of function parameter should change both definition and declaration.
It is better than change only one piece of function, isn't it?

Thank you

case=20637 is fixed in build 2380.

Change Signature failing to rename the parameter in the implementation is fixed in build 2089.
However, case=20637 is still open.

It fails for me as well. It looks like an entirely unrelated issue to the one I thought I was responding to. Thanks for your follow-through.

And yes, it appears that 85429 is a duplicate of 20637.

> triggering Change Signature on the function and making a change works, both the declaration and the implementation are updated correctly
Implementation is not updated correctly.
I has the following code after Change Singature for your example:
using namespace spaceTestingChangeSig;

void spaceTestingChangeSig::testRefactoring::testRenameParamUsingNamespace(int nFirst)
{
    nSecond += 2;
}


PS: Are cases 20637 and 85429 similar?

I think I am seeing the same problem. Using this simple test case, this code in the header file:

namespace spaceTestingChangeSig
{
	class testRefactoring
	{
		void testRenameParamUsingNamespace(int nSecond);
	};

}

and this code in the matching cpp file:

using namespace spaceTestingChangeSig;

void testRefactoring::testRenameParamUsingNamespace(int nSecond)
{
	nSecond += 2;
}

triggering Change Signature on the function and making a change works, both the declaration and the implementation are updated correctly, but the namespace is added to the implementation, even though it is not needed.

case=85429

Is this what you are seeing?

> This statement is incorrect in other cases
All my classes are placed in the namespace. Change Signature is always adding garbage namespace prefix.
So it always 'thinks' that my definition is out-of-sync.
sean Posted - Jan 18 2016 : 2:20:12 PM
I should note that my previous comment only applies when the parameter names are out of sync (when comparing definition vs declaration).

This statement is incorrect in other cases:
>However, Change Signature does not perform Rename for parameters. It just change header without touching body.

Change Signature does in fact update both definition and declaration (since 2013 as of build 2007).
sean Posted - Jan 18 2016 : 2:12:34 PM
Yes, it appears that when the declaration and definition do not use the same parameter name, Change Signature will only make the declaration match the definition. It will not run if the signature is unchanged (as taken from declaration) -- making it impossible to make the definition match the declaration in a single step. Changing the declaration to match the definition is possible in a single step. Getting them in sync as taken from the definition requires two steps.

Once definition and declaration are in sync, Change Signature will modify both as expected.

I have opened a feature request to allow Change Signature to run in this scenario (out of sync, trying to make declaration match definition). case=94526

However, Change Signature does not perform Rename for parameters. It just change header without touching body.

PS: I see 10 topics starting from 2007 except my one. So.. It will not be fixed soon, am I right?

We are considering to implement this at some point:

case=1140

For now, you can use Change Signature to change parameter names.
