intellisense c# against intellisense c++

Why c# intellisense is more powerful than c++ intellisense?
In c# when type a character intellisense start and guide me.In c++
intellisense start only when I type a . or -> or ::.
In c# user class are displayed in a specific color.Why I can't do it
in c++?

Why do cats fall down with their legs first and dogs don't?
Probably the same reason, The C# IDE might be built differently than VC++
IDE and it takes time to get them to behave the same way. Sometimes C# gets
a new way of doing intelisense, soemtimes the C++ does add a new way of
intelisense and it takes time t implement that behaviour to the orther
language.

One thing I can think of, since C# is a very new way of programming, it is
maybe easier to implement new features than C++ that must stay backwards
compatible.

Ok c# will be very new but any programmer would like similar tools to
write code?Is right?
Don't think that c++ programmers spend more time to write code and
have less control.

I like the way call tips displays argument variables for functions when you type the "(" after the function name. However, if one of the arguments to the function is something like "SomeMod.attribute", the intellisense will display all the exposed methods and attributes when "SomeMod." is typed. This is fine but once I have selected the desired attribute and continue with entering the next argument, the original call tip for the function...

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. It compiles as Foo.dll, which I then reference from the project that needs it. Let's say I have a method, Bar, that I want to access from another project. 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...

I had a strange problem the other day when using Intellisense, and wondering if anyone has any experience with or advice on this... Just to give some quick background, I have a multi-tier application, with business objects coded in a business layer (C# project), the service interfaces and service objects coded in two C# projects, respectively. 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,...

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,...
