Just heard of this thing for the first time and went to try it out, sadly the syntax highlighting and type deduction in va is very questionable :(
Edit: oops, I meant to post this in feature requests

Thank you for letting us know this is also effecting you, I have made a note on the case about this. We are hoping to address this fairly soon, but until we try, it's not always obvious how easy it will be to properly support this syntax.

+1 on this. It's really stressing me when VAX does auto-correct during the typing of the structured binding or trying to use the variables. I always thought it was a shortcoming on MS's IntelliSense parser...

In a way it can seem easier to be a compiler writer, since once you encounter a fatal error in the code, you can go "oops, giving up now". VA is designed to parse your code as you are writing it, so most of the time we expect it to be invalid, and aim to parse it as well as possible regardless. It makes life "interesting"

I just heard about these a minute ago when I read your post lol. This language is morphing at a rate faster than I can wrap my head around. Can't imagine writing parsers to handle all these language zigs and zags.
For the inquiring mind:

Our parser does not currently support / understand structured bindings. This is something we are aware of, but I don't currently have an estimate for when we will try adding support for this:
It is useful to know that you have run into this limitation, so I have made a note on the case about this.
