    parameter info and member lists

    i've just upgraded from Windows 98 to Windows XP, but I'm having trouble with a feature in MS VC++ 6. There appears to be no parameter info or member lists available for functions and types declared outside my workspace. for example:

    Code:
    RECT rc;
    
    rc. //no member list appears when the dot is typed.
    and:
    Code:
    CreateWindow( //no parameter list appears when the bracket is typed.
    but:

    Code:
    class cls1
    {
    public:
    int variable;
    );
    
    cls1 object;
    object. //member list appears, because the class was declared within the workspace.
    I'm hoping there is a simple explanation for this behavior; parameter info and member lists are quite handy. does anyone know what the problem is?

    If someone knows the answer to that question, please answer how you get rid of that feature too. It's annoying .

    i love that feature! but to get rid of it, go to tools, options, its in the editor tab, uncheck the following:

    Auto list members
    Auto type info
    Auto parameter info

    but people, still try to help me out here, i actually like those features and really want to get them working!

    sorry

    i dont like to bump a post, but this is something which is discouraging me from programming, and ive never needed you people's help so much until now.

    ill recap the problem: i upgraded to WinXP from Win 98, and i use MS VC++ 6. any types or functions not defined within the workspace will not give their info when you request it, such as parameter info, member listings, and type info. however you can go to the definition of whatever and all the info is right there. but i need to be able to access that info straight away, so can anyone help me solve this problem? please?

    Try deleteing all the files for the your worspace other than your cpp's, h's, and ur workspace files, that means everything else and do a full rebuild and tell if that fixed the problem.

    thanks, that solved the problem. there must have been some information that should not have carried over to my new computer, which raises the issue of Visual Studio workspaces not being very portable or standalone. oh well, you cant have everything. thanks again.
