IDE question

Recommended Posts

is visual c++ the only IDE with a feature that helps organize classes? the feature im talking about is the box on the left side of visual c++ with a line on top saying "FileName classes" and right under it, it lists all functions and classes and structs of the file. just curious.. --------------------- ..I still dont get the difference between c and c++...

Nope. Metrowerks Codewarrior has a button you click that drops down a menu listing all functions. Not classes though. Just the same, I assure you that msvc++ is not the only one. The chances of that are nill.

In VC++, when you type in a function, it helps you by popping a little yellow tips that shows the data type of the parameters...this works with CreateWindow, and function in and those I defined myself...but it doesn''t seems to work with those gl functions, (I just downloaded the VC++ tutorial from this site)? Anybody knows solution?

borland c++ builder does aswell. I forgot if the later versions of borland c++ did though (don''t remember it being there).

Borland C++ 5.x (I''m not sure if it was only in Enterprise or Professional or above though) had a class browser, but it was somewhat more hidden (up in one of the menus or something).

VC 6 has a file named sysincl.dat that lists all the names of the header files to exclude from the tooltip and auto complete type stuff. I haven''t tried it myself but why not see if removing the references to the ogl headers fixes the problem (they are in the file - I''ve looked) ?

HTH,

CodeWarrior 7 has a "Class heirachy window" that shows all the classes in the project (rather than per source file) and the inheritance relationships. Sadly it includes all the standard classes too, and there''s no option to hide them, so it can be tricky spotting your own classes.

well, yes, gl*.h is in sysincl.dat...but so is windows.h which shows up on help...so that didn''t work...thanks for the suggestion though...any other idea?

Well it was worth a shot - the MSDN says that the info is pre-compiled and stored in .NCB files, and the tools to create these yourself have not been published (yet)

When you''re using Visual C++, I have to recommend the excellent Visual Assist. Take a look at the features and you''ll want to buy it immediately. After working with it for an hour, you''ll never want to work without it again.

No, I don''t have shares in Whole Tomato. I just think it''s that good!

to get the argument viewer for functions in visual c++, first
you must save the note pad as cpp
if that doesnt work
i think you have to compile it at least once...but that doesnt
make sense


ok anyways, another question, for all the IDE''s that has the
class heirachy feature, are any one free for use??? i mean
as free as dev-c++ is???
