build 1738, in c++

1. If the class is declared directly in the .cpp file and having a corresponding .h file, the declaration is inserted at the end of the .h file (outside the namespace), not in the correct place in the .cpp file.

2. The class name is also inserted, that's not the thing I need.
class xxx
void xxx::refactored_method( );

3. I cannot change the VA snippet for the declaration.

with a VA snippet I should comment my .h file

You mean you would write a description template, something like "Document Method" refactoring does?

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


The problem is caused by the macro before the typename in the class forward declaration.

ok, create a va.h with that content:

#define THEAPI

namespace blah
class THEAPI xxxx;

now, create a va.cpp with that content

#include "va.h"

namespace blah
class THEAPI xxxx

void xxxx::test( )


create a console project with the 2 files.

now go on the line (in va.cpp)
void xxxx::test( )

right click on 'test' and select refactor->create declaration.
you will get the problem

by the way (I think there is a relationship), when you click on the same line on xxxx and select 'go to declaration', the cursor is going inside the va.h file, not on the class

Can you please provide a more specific description? I wasn't able to reproduce this with the following code snippet:

code in the cpp file:

namespace nTest {
	class cTest

void nTest::cTest::TestMethod() {}

If I use Create Declaration on the last line, I get this:

namespace nTest {
	class cTest

		void TestMethod();

void nTest::cTest::TestMethod() {}

I also get the correct result, when I place the definition into the namespace, but outside the class.
Can you please try this simplified example in a new win32 test project just to see if this work on your computer?

What IDE do you use?

What modification would you do if we had a snippet for Create Declaration?
