Visual studio 2022 - Disable auto sync namespace and folder name

Hello,
can i disable the auto refactoring of the namespace if i drag a cs file in a dictionary?

I work with MAUI and i get some problems with my xaml pages if visual studio change the namespaces if i drag some cs file in some dictionary.

Summary:
Visual studio 2022 does this automatically:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/ide/reference/sync-namespace-and-folder-name?view=vs-2022
But i don't want it.

Best regards

The sync namespace is a refactor option that you have to opt into. I don't see the behavior you see when I move a file to a new folder. It retains the old namespace name like I'd expect. There was pushback about making this automatic for the very reasons you mentioned, amongst others so it was opt in.

Unfortunately the paste command doesn't expose which refactors it'll do and I believe it is tied to code cleanup which itself is tied to format document so it gets ugly fast. Some things that come to mind as to what might be causing this for you:

  • Your editorconfig has enabled this feature (not sure if it is available there yet)

  • You have some other extension installed (like ReSharper or CodeRush) that is actually running the code cleanup tools

  • A setting in the MAUI project properties has this feature turned on. Try doing this same thing on a console/class library project and see if the problem still occurs. If it does then it is VS wide otherwise it might just be tied to the project settings.

Unfortunately I don't know a great way of diagnosing what is triggering the code cleanup rules (which I believe is what is causing this issue for you).

I see the same behavior with a console project.
I haven't installed some extensions.
I reseted the settings but this didn't help

I should say that i must use the preview version of VS 2022 for MAUI.
I use VS 2019 for my other projects

Oh that is different then. In the Preview version of VS 2022 go to Tools\Options -> Projects and Solutions\General. At the bottom is the Enable namespace update when moving files. Uncheck that box or uncheck the box below it so you'll get a prompt instead. This feature isn't in the RTM version of VS 2022 yet.
