for example: class number { public: int i; }; number variable; variable. <-----right there when you hit that dot a little pop down menu should show that lists the class members.....but I somehow disabled mine. Does anyone know how to turn this back on? thanks in advance, -Brad

This option is only available in visual C++ 6.0 and up. It is also very restrictive in how it works. For instance if you have an error in your code before that line you will not get a popup until you have fixed that syntax error.

Erros in your code can cause it and the database gets hosed easily, too. You can just delete it and VC will recreate a fresh one the next time you start. It is either the .ncb or .opt file, you can safely delete either or both. One is the autolist database the other just has settings like what windows you had open in the IDE.
