directx 8 / C++ 6 Question

Recommended Posts

hello, i was wondering if anyone can help me. i''ve been studying directdraw for the last few weeks and i am finding it really annoying to remember all of the parameters of the fuctions. when using a function from the c++ library a small yellow display comes up showing you the parameters needed to fill the function, is there any way this display can be enabled for directx. i''ve directx 8 and c++ 6 if that is important. thanks in advance sie

I myself have had similar problems--I would love the AutoComplete functionality to work with DirectX function calls. Alas, in the years I have worked with C++/DirectX, the only way I''ve been able to get AutoComplete to come up is to directly include all of the directx .h files in my project.

Ugh...

Anyone else been able to get this to work?

Annoying way:
Add all of the directx headers to your project. They don''t need to be included.

Better way:
Get Visual Assist from www.wholetomato.com and experience programmer bliss.
