How do I get a part of a method name?
Question asked by Hans Kesting - 5/17/2018 at 4:41 AM
I am trying to create a rule for "ShouldSerialize" methods (see docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/winforms/controls/defining-default-values-with-the-shouldserialize-and-reset-methods).
For example for a method "ShouldSerializeSomeProperty()" I want to have a summary like "Determines whether property <see cref="SomeProperty"/> should be serialized".
Currently I use <see cref="$(End)$(MethodName.ActualName)"/> so I must manually delete the first part of the name.
How do I get just the "SomeProperty" part of the method name?
Some suggestions:
* a substring after some specific number of characters
* the non-matched part of the name (matching is "startswith 'ShouldSerialize' ")
