Overview

This rule concerns the use of language keywords, where they exist, instead of framework type names.

Options

Use the associated options for this rule to apply it to:

An option value of true means prefer the language keyword (for example, int or Integer) instead of the type name (for example, Int32) for types that have a keyword to represent them. A value of false means prefer the type name instead of the language keyword.

For information about configuring options, see Option format.

dotnet_style_predefined_type_for_locals_parameters_members

Property Value Description
