Visual Studios coding assistance.

Recommended Posts

A long time ago, my Visual Studio 6.0 had this really helpful thing that I will call the "assistant" for the lack of a better name. If I begin to type, say, "memset()", by the time i enter the open parenthesis, visual studio will give me a little small box that has the proper syntax for memset! This "assistant" also gave me a description of an error if I pressed F1 after i highlighted an error inthe debug window. I really miss have this assistance thing on. What is it, where can I get it, and is it free? (I have a copy of Visual Studio 6.0, i hope its on there).

edit: i said google intellisense, but when i went, it didn't really help at all..

it comes with visual studio, and it is free, although sometimes it breaks =(, like when using direct3d..

I think the Itellisense version included with MSVS6 only, uh, intellisenses for functions whose headers are added to your project.

it works fine for functions that i have defined in my project workspace.

but for standard functions like memset, strlen, memcpy...etc, it doesnt do it for these. but it used to.
