I came in to work today and fired up MSVC++ and when I started trying to access the parameter/function list for a variable, the list didn''t show up. I tried reinstalling the MSDN (Oct 2001) and made sure the settings in the Tools->Options dialog were set correctly but I still can''t get it working. It was working when I left work yesterday... please help

i had this same problem. delete your project files (* not your ".h" and ".cpp" files but project files *) and then recreate the project. it should be fine after that.

(* cool. pascal style comment block. *). hehe.

ohh, and code complete is not part of the MSDN. most likely part of the classwizard.

On a side note, Any clue as to why it does all this auto-completing of class functions/parameters but doesn''t work if i do something like this:

  
std::vector<int> v;
v.clear();


i get auto complete after the scope resolution operator but not when i do v.

dunno. is this after you have re-created you project. try creating a new project and see if the problem re-occurs.

Thanks jenova and Torn.

To jenova: Yes, if I create a brand new project it still doesn''t work. Not a big deal but quite curious.

Would you mind being more specific Oluseyi? Because when I installed it originally it went through with no errors (i know that doesn''t necessarily mean it installed correctly).

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!
