    VC++6 Troubles autocomplete

    Hey! Sometimes, when I change things around, VC will not detect my changes in autocomple. someClass.someValue will not bring up a menu. I always have to delete project files and workspaces, make a new one, and add all the files and rebuild. Is there anyway around this? Im using Visual C++ 6

    Try only deleting the .ncb file (with the same name as your workspace). Do this before you open the workspace. This helps me occasionally. Also, regenerating browse info might help.

    Don't use autocomplete?
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    It's not a huge problem; but it's $800 software; I want the best of it!

    I can understand that attitude. Of course, I've found autocomplete to be nothing more than a bother and a performance problem that hurts my productivity. To each their own.

    I actually find it quite useful, when working with several different APIs, each has its own naming conventions, it's nearly impossible for me to memorize every single function name, or param list, so instead of looking for then in the docs, I use autocomplete.

    I've been using Visual Assist for a little over 4 years now.
    It will change you life!
