Intellisense and COM

I have the following coded elements:
1. An interface
2. A baseclass implementing the interface
3. A subclass that inherits the baseclass and contains some extra properties and methods

I use my subclass through COM, in this case in Access2003.

Now, if I declare a variable x As mySubClass, then on typing "x." Intellisense shows me nothing.
If I declare a variable x As myBaseClass, then on typing "x." Intellisense still shows me nothing.
If I declare a variable x As myInterface, then instantiate x = new myBaseClass, then on typing "x." Intellisense shows me the properties and methods in the interface. The same thing happens if I instantiate x = new mySubClass. However, in that case I still cannot see the properties and methods that are specific to the derived class.

What I want to have happen is the following: On instantiating x As mySubClass, I want Intellisense to show me ALL the public properties and methods that mySubClass has available, the inherited ones and the new ones.

How can I get this done?

Any help will be very much appreciated!

Yesterday I typed in some C++ code that called a function with two ints. Intellisense (auto-complete) helpfully told me that the first formal parameter was called "frontLight" and the second "ringLight". It occurred to me that I'm getting some semantic help here on top of the obvious type safety. It seems to me that the existance of this kind of support is tied to the static typing nature of C++. I've always been interested in the...

I'm working on a solution containing about 20 projects. Some of the projects contain class definitions that are used in other of the projects. Most of the time intellisense is working ok, i.e. if I work with objects declared from my own classes intellisense will show me all alternatives (methods and properties from my classes and from the classes they are derived from). But sometimes I will get nothing from intellisense, completely nothing,...

I'm working in VB.Net, using Visual Studio 2003. I have a project, let's call it Foo, that contains common methods, forms, and objects I use in other projects.

If I add a public module Methods to Foo, and add a public method Bar to Methods, I can call it from my other project a...

In my service objects project, I go to call on one of the

Hi, I have a custom ListView-type control that I designed a few months ago. The control is completely stable and functional. However, often, the Visual Studio .NET IDE's Intellisense will lose and not display members not contained inside of Control (which my control is inherited from). Despite this, program execution still works fine; Intellisense just stops displaying these members, is all. If I close down Visual Studio and open it again,...

Hi! We have an application surveillance product with a number of API's for different languages; one of them is a C API. Now I wonder how we can supply intellisense to our Visual Studio.Net (native C/C++) users (preferably both VS 7.0 and 7.1). I would like to have something like the parameter info you get for e.g. printf when you enter the opening parenthesis, printf(

I was creating my application just fine for the last 3 weeks or so. Then, starting this morning, IntelliSense seems to be having problems. It goes into a locked 'Updating IntelliSense..." mode. When this happens its time to close VS C++.NET, which can only be done via the Windows Task Manager. I tried repairing C++. It did seem to help, but the problem is back a few hours later. I will try creating a new project, copy over source files,...

Hello, I'm using __declspec(property) to access get/set methods as properties (like in C# and VB.NET). Now, the problem is that both the property name and the get/set methods show in the intellisense list. Is there anyway to remove the names of the get/set methods from the intellisense list? Here's an example, I have two methods, one is a get method with the name getText and another set method with the name setText, the name of the...

Hi, I was a user of Visual C# for a while and have gotten used to the Intellisense for that program. I went to try Visual Basic, and the intellisense is so much different. I'll try to make an example: Say I want to write: MessageBox.Show("Hi there") In C#, once I type just a single "M," everything (objects, classes, everything) that begins with M will appear in the intellisense list. Once you get to "Mes" MessageBox will be selected...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention.
