It can happen because there''s a syntax error somewhere in the code file you''re editing, in that case, it will not be able to parse the names for what you are typing.

It also seems to happen if you haven''t included the source/header files necessary to recognise the variables/types in your project.

Good question.

I''ve got the same problem with OpenGL functions even if there are no code errors.

I have the GL headers included, but the code help whatsit NEVER comes up for any GL calls.

I think it''s a conspiracy on the part of Microsoft to get us all to move to DirectX

From MSDN:
quote:

SYMPTOMS
When working with macro definitions in Microsoft Visual C++, the following two IntelliSense limitations occur:

IntelliSense does not dynamically resolve macro definitions.

Using #ifdef or #ifndef to define functions produces unexpected results.



I think OpenGL relies quite heavily on macros, this could be the problem.

you should get visual assist. It integrates right into MSVC and will show parameter info on anything (even directx). It also has a bunch of other cool features.
