Re: Danger of using R#

Thank you to Ilya Ryzhenkov's comment regarding my previous post about Resharper. I finally got some time to test out the code myself.
1. Indeed this is a Resharper (2.5 build 350) Bug where "Remove Parameter" didn't take consideration of delegate declaration.
For example:

   1: public class Form1 : Form
   2: {
   3:     delegate void SetTextCallback(object sender, string text);
   5:     private void SetText(object sender, string text)
   6:     {
   7:         // InvokeRequired required compares the thread ID of the
   8:         // calling thread to the thread ID of the creating thread.
   9:         // If these threads are different, it returns true.
  10:         if (this.textBox1.InvokeRequired)
  11:         {
  12:             SetTextCallback d = new SetTextCallback(SetText);
  13:             this.Invoke(d, new object[] { this, text });
  14:         }
  15:         else
  16:         {
  17:             this.textBox1.Text = text;
  18:         }
  19:     }
  20: }

However, most likely you will not encounter the runtime error that I mention. Instead, you will encounter compiling error because you would have fix your delegate declaration and therefore you would have fix the following line by removing the "this" paramter:

this.Invoke(d, new object[] { this, text });

Of course, if you missed fixing this function, then you will still run into runtime time error of InvalidCasting exception, because Invoke() try to cast "this" object to a String.
