My project is using http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh694604.aspx to define unit tests, which means writing:

namespace Project

The VA Outline pane only shows:

{} Project

The outliner seems to treat them like methods instead. VA's other tools do correctly see them as classes and member methods, but not the outline view.

I'm on VA 10.8.2029.0. Thanks!

case=30076 is fixed in build 2380.

Our problem is that we have more feature requests and bug reports than we can fix immediately, so we need to find some method to prioritise what we do. How many people have expressed an interest in something is one of the factors that we take into consideration, along with how complex the change will be.

Recently adding support for Visual Studio 2019 has been a major focus, for obvious reasons. We still have some work to do here as well. As a result this being down as high priority has not made that much difference. Also very few of our users have reported being bothered by this problem. It is still a bug, and yes, it does need to be fixed, but somehow we have to balance this with other bugs that are effecting more users.

I know about the Alt-M feature but it doesn't help with collapsing/reordering functions etc. What about the "high priority". I don't think that few users have this problem. I personally know about the problem for years. But I just now spent the time to search the forum.
VAX is intended to improve the workflow of developers (which it does in a great way) and analyzing/reporting a problem takes time. So no one reports all problems and very few report problems that can be bypassed. Never-less such problems intercept the workflow.

best regards

Unfortunately still no progress to report on this.

For now, if you set:

VA Options -> Display -> Display VA Navigation Bar:
Occurrence / Alphabetical sort of methods in dropdown

to Occurrence then the Alt-M list of methods in the current file will be in file order. Not the same as VA Outline, but hopefully helpful when you are navigating though your code.

Very few of our users are encountering and reporting this problem, so it is not considered so urgent, but we have not forgotten about it.

The issue has a high priority, but unfortunately we didn't get to this yet

additional info:
even va_stdafx.h is not helping
schoenherr Posted - Jun 18 2018 : 05:08:28 AM
seem's to be still a too low priority :(

I've increased the priority of this for you, hopefully it will help a little bit.
schoenherr Posted - Sep 06 2017 : 02:31:58 AM
this very old issue is still present.
any news on this

I am seeing the same effect here. Thank you for the clear description.
