Enters Visual Assist, which is really unbelievable.
V.A sounds very interesting. Now see - heres the thing. Currently i do something most might considr crazy - i prototype and code initially in REALbasic and then ( using a home grown tool ) convert this into C++ ready for JUCE.
Why do i do this ? and more to the point WHY am i so reluctant to just ditch RB and work entirely in C++ ?. Its because RB ( and mauybe the VBNet IDE - dunno ) lets me create edit and browse objects - CLASSES are ONE single object. One file no header/cpp files to forever be navigating.
Now what i would really like to see is some tool inside or outside VS or Xcode - which almost completely HIDES the stupid C++ files and just lets me create, edit and yes - refactor stuff with ease - something that deals with objects a such and hides all else. XCode of course has a kind of “object browser” and a mode where one can edit methods and properties visually, but its painfully obvious that there are headers and body files behind.
Are there any add-ons to VS that do this sort of thing better ? or does the latest incarnation of VS do this perfectly well already ? .
I was amazed to read here that even in 2010 Msoft still cant get a working visual assist prompt tech working.
To Jules: Is XCode 4 really going to be that amazing ?.
