Intellisense in MC++

I am using Microsoft Visual C++ .NET in Visual Studio 2003. Why there is no
intellisense in MC++? Any workarounds?

This is probably not going to be of much help to you but Visual C++ .NET 2005
has this feature included but don't hold your breath because it does not
always work the correct way.

Thanks John. You are right, I am also exploring VS2005 beta2.

Already spend time on converting code from "VC++ Visual Studio 6" to "Visual
Studio .NET 2003". It is not that easy. For some time I would stick to Visual
Studio .NET 2003, unless there is compelling reason.

Hello guys:
Visual C++ 2003 support IntelliSense both for native C++ and for Managed
Extensions for C++. The reason you it is not working for your current
project might be a configuration issue or even a product bug.
Let me give you some tips so that you can try to get IntelliSense back for
your MC++ project:
- Is the /clr switch set in the project properties? Is it a make file
project?
- If the /clr switch is correctly set for your project and still you have no
IntelliSense for your code, go ahead and close your solution and delete the
file with a .ncb extension in your project. Reopen the solution will make
the IDE rebuild this file and probably restore IntelliSense for you.

In Visual C++ 2005, the IntelliSense experience for managed code is a lot
more compelling. For a detailed explanation of how our IntelliSense support
works and what to expect from Visual C++ 2005 you can read the following MSDN
article
