You could just do the reasonable thing and switch over to VC++ Express...

I don't know how to Dev-C++'s version of intelliSense, but I have always been prompted to enable it when installing Dev-C++.

That said, I agree with Promit. VC++ Express is free and the intelliSense is MUCH MUCH better than anything you'll get with Dev-C++.

Hi;

I think what you are looking for is the Code Completion feature.

To enable code completion, go to "Tools / Editor Options" and enable the class browser and code completion.

I wouldn't call it MUCH MUCH better, I would say a little better, I believe Microsoft thought the IntelliSense feature was a lost cause on C++ and did not warrant the "making it better" approach. But still grab VC++ Express as it is, IMO, the best free C++ IDE & Compiler around.

If you are looking for a lot better IntelliSense for C++ then I think you have no choice but to look towards getting the non-express edition of C++.NET 2005 and to try out WholeTomato's (www.wholetomato.com) Intellisense addin.
