VC++ Intellesense

I learned this through trial and error. I did not
read anywhere official that this is the right answer.
:slight_smile:

MSDEV.EXE (the IDE) will expand those members. It has
nothing to do with the library being static or
dynamic. It has nothing to do with the header file
defining the members being in the include path
either…

You have to tell the IDE where the headers are. It
will scan them and cache the result. In your project
file, right click on “headers” and choose “add files”.
Add in all of the SDL header files. Note that you do
NOT need to copy the headers into your project. You
can leave them whereever they happen to be. Mine are
in “C:\Program Files…\vc98\Include\SDL”.

Be careful. Visual Basic rots your brain.

Hi all,

Is there a way to list the members of an object in VC6
after pressing
".",
just like in VB? For example,

SDL_Surface* s;

And when I press the “>” in “s->”, is it a way to
enable VC6 to list
the
members?

If not, is it because the SDL library are already
statically compiled?

Thanx!

[VisualStudio 6 solution]

IIRC with VisualStudio.NET, you can get this to work by compiling your
project. I think it works off of the precompiled headers, so as soon
as you’ve got your basic application’s main() written, compile and voila!

If you can get an upgrade cheaply, VisualStudio.NET 2003 is much nicer
to use than VisualStudio 6.

Be careful. Visual Basic rots your brain.

Hi,

Do Managed C++ programs need the .NET framework to run?

The point of me using VC6 is that I don’t need to distribute the .NET
Framework with my program. I am more familiar with VS.NET, but u know, the
framework is large in size (1X mb?)

Yes, Managed C++ applications need the .Net framework.

Windows XP and Windows 2003 Server already include the v1.0 framework,
so it depends on your target audience.

SDL mailing list
SDL at libsdl.org
http://www.libsdl.org/mailman/listinfo/sdl

give eclipse a try and use gcc+make (there is a win32 distribution for
that)?
