I am using VA_X.dll file version 10.7.1912.0 with VS 6.0 SP6 built 2012.08.08. I was using VAX 1908 before.

I am trying to Alt-G from the source (caret in the mehod-?s name) to the declaration without success, the reverse works though.
The problem seems to be limited to class methods, I could not see the same behavior for class members.
I could reproduce this with a new MFC wizard generated project (C++, exe).
I just had to move a header file into an G?includeG? subfolder (project settings of course updated) to trigger the problem.
While the compiler was happy and VAX also showed the correct parameter info Alt-G did not take me from source to header.
Restarting or rebuilding the database did not help.

I hope this makes sense to you.


VS 2010 seems to be also affected.

As you mentioned, case=69195 is fixed in build 1916.

Wow, already fixed with build 1916. Thank you.

The test project was very helpful, thank you for this. This problem should be fixed in the next build of VA, which we are hoping to have ready in the next week.

thank you for the test project and the additional info
JCo Posted - Sep 11 2012 : 04:38:42 AM
I have sent the test project.

You are correct, it seems to happen only with headers that are not part of the project.
I added the include directory to the project specific settings and it did'nt work (no matter if I used relative or absolute paths).
Originally I had the include directory configured in the platform specific settings, but this did not work either.
Strangely it seems to work for system headers.

I was able to reproduce the problem using your description and I have put in a bug report for this:


Just to double check, if I understand correctly, your problem is that alt+g doesn't work on methods whom declaration is in an included header file which is not in the project. Is that correct? You also added the directory to the additional include directories, but it doesn't seems to work when including the header using the full path, either.

Does it help if you add the header to your project?
feline Posted - Sep 10 2012 : 3:32:31 PM
Would you be able to send me this sample project, along with a note on which file and line shows the problem? I can then look into it here.

If so please submit the files via the form:
