Hello, I''m using Ms Visual C++ 6.0. The automatic statement completion is great, it''s really helpful not to have to look at the help everytime you make a Windows API call. My problem is, I haven''t found how to expand the knowledge base of the statement completion. One example: I''m programming with DirectX 8.0. How can I have the function prototypes appear on my screen when typing? I''m using other "custom" libraries, and it would really help me having this feature work for them too. So if you know how to do it, your help is welcome! Thanx

As far as I know, you can''t.

However, if you buy Visual Assist, it has this and a whole load of great new features, including better syntax highlighting, it recognises #defines as well, and a whole bunch of other stuff.

It''s not free, but well worth the cost. Check it out here: http://www.wholetomato.com/.

Well, I just had a glance at the feature list, it seems it''s exactly what I was looking for, and even more!

I''ll install the trial version to be sure, but I think you''re right, it''ll be really worth it!

Thank you a lot Dean!

I think if add the DX8 .H file to your project (don''t copy it) you will get the little tooltip things
