Visual Studio Sort Lines


Code Cleaning

Sort usings.; 2 minutes to read; m; g; In this article. This refactoring applies to: C#. What: Sort usings. When: You want to sort using directives at the top of your file so that they are in alphabetical order. Why: It makes it easier to find a using directive. Select Edit from the menu bar. Select Intellisense Sort Usings. The Indentation, New Lines, Spacing, and Wrapping subpages each display a preview window at the bottom that shows the effect of each option. To use the preview window, select a formatting option. The preview window shows an example of the selected option. When you change a setting by selecting a radio button or check box, the preview window updates to show the effect of the new setting. Sort selected text from Visual Studio context menu. I have some lines of code I wish to sort alphabetically, nothing clever. I wish to just select the lines, and then sort them. (I could copy them into Excel then sort and copy them back, but there must be a better way) This is the bit of code I am trying to time, in real life it is a lot longer.

Code cleanup can run automatically on save,
or on demand. It can run on an individual file,
all open files, any selection in the solution
explorer, or the entire solution.

Actions taken on cleanup

  1. Remove unused using statements
  2. Sort using statements
  3. Add unspecified access modifiers
  4. Remove empty regions
  5. Add blank line padding
  6. Remove blank lines next to braces
  7. Run Visual Studio formatting
  8. Remove consecutive blank lines
  9. Remove end of line whitespace
  10. Update endregion tags

Code Digging

Visualize and navigate through the contents of your C# and C++ files from a tree view hierarchy.


Quickly switch between different sorting methods to get a better overview.

Type a search filter to find specific items.

Drag and drop to reorganize the code.

Including multi-selection capabilities.

See McCabe complexity scores and informative tooltips.

Code Reorganizing

Reorganize the layout of members in a C# file to follow Microsoft’s StyleCop convention, or your own preferences.

Reorganizing before

Automatically generate regions to match.

Regions Before

Comment Formatting

Format comments to wrap at a specified column and arrange tags on separate lines.

Formatting before


Join two adjacent lines, or a highlighted section of code onto a single line.

Joining before


Sort a highlighted section of code alphabetically.

Sorting Before


Find the current file in the solution explorer window.

Finding before


Recursively collapse nodes or the entire tree in the solution explorer window.

or in the Windows taskbar, both with a green/red status indication.


Switch between related files, such as cpp and header files or xaml and code-behind.

Switching before


Enable, modify or disable many of the aspects of how CodeMaid does its work.

If the order of lines is not important

Sort lines alphabetically, if they aren’t already, and perform these steps:
(based on this related question: How do I find and remove duplicate lines from a file using Regular Expressions?)

  1. Control+F
  2. Toggle “Replace mode”
  3. Toggle “Use Regular Expression” (the icon with the .* symbol)
  4. In the search field, type ^(.*)(n1)+$
  5. In the “replace with” field, type $1
  6. Click (“Replace All”).

If the order of lines is important so you can’t sort

Visual Studio Alphabetize Lines

In this case, either resort to a solution outside VS Code (see here), or – if your document is not very large and you don’t mind spamming the Replace All button – follow the previous steps, but in steps 4 and 5, enter these:
(based on Remove specific duplicate lines without sorting)

Caution: Blocks for files with too many lines (1000+); may cause VS Code to crash; may introduce blank lines in some cases.

  • search: ((^[^S$]*?(?=S)(?:.*)+$)[Ss]*?)^2$(?:n)?
  • replace with: $1

and then click the “Replace All” button as many times as there are duplicate occurrences.

Visual Studio Sort Lines

You’ll know it’s enough when the line count stops decreasing when you click the button. Navigate to the last line of the document to keep an eye on that.
