    Visual c++.net classview cockup

    Classview has a nasty habit of going out of date and there seems to be no way to force a refresh of its contents. I suppose one way would be to delete its data file. Any1 else found this problem and a fix for it.

    msvc.net pro fully sp and patched on winxp pro.

    I use VisualAssist from Whole Tomato - I highly recomend it. You can download a 30 day trial.

    looks useful that. its got some very handy features but it doesnt seem to address the problem with class view. For some reason class views data can go out of date. For instance my classview reports that i have a global in my current project. I dont. This was something i forgot to qualify with namespace name. spotted at a build and fixed but the old one still shows up in classview and there appears to be no way to remove it. right click on it and select find symbol/goto symbol whatever it is and it takes me to the middle of an implementation of a function with not a mention of this symbol in site. Can i force a refresh of classviews contents to update it to the current picture?
    Until now ive put up with this but now its becoming a large pain in the ass. Looks like its knowledge base surfing for me!

    I only have VC++6 right now, but when classview dies in that (quite regularly) I close down the project and delete the .ncb and .opt files......this then forces classview to be repopulated and usually fixes it.

    well tried deleting just about everything and problem still persists.
    Deleted the intellinonsense database and that didnt fix it. think classview may still have a few niggles. Damn cant microsuck fix anything right. Looks like i'll look to add-ons to get what should have been in the compiler/ide anyway.
    Looked thru the KB and found sweet FA. typical really.

    As well as the KB, I found that this is worth trolling for the answer too.....

    Dont know if its got your answer, but it may be worth a search
