    Help needed regarding the Browser Info file in VC++

    hey everybody ..

    i have a question regarding the VC++ browser info file.

    i am currently building the browser info file but its not showing me the browse information.

    This is what i want:-

    when i create an object like..

    PClass *ptr = new PClass();

    and then when i do ptr->

    it should show me a drop down with all the members and variables of that class..

    i guess browser info file is the only way we can achieve this..

    i am trying different ways but its not working..

    any help .. highly appreciated

    Thanks,
    Intruder.

    That all gets done with ItelliSense. The options for that are in Tools -> Options -> Text Editor -> <language>.

    Sometimes IntelliSense just isn't smart enough to find what you need, and sometimes you need to press alt + right arrow key in order to give it a push.

    hey thanks for the reply but its not like that.. i figured it out..

    When VC++ browser workspace is opened, it creates two files .ncb and .opt. The editor fetches the details from these files so if these files are corrupted then you will not get the drop down list.

    So the solution to this is close the workspace window and delete these files and reopen the workspace.

    This way these files will be again created and there you go you get what you wanted !!

    well Thanks anyways.

    You really only want to delete the ncb file, since the opt file can hold information that might be useful for you that you would have to re-enter, like debugging options.
