Using VS2012 and VA 10.8.2023.0

When I do a "Create class Foo" refactoring, then let VA creates the .h file, then later do a "Move Implementation to Source File", VA creates the .cpp file but does not include it in the project.

To reproduce:
1. Declare an object with a new class:

Foo f;

2. Move cursor to Foo, open context menu and select "Create class Foo".
3. Let VA create the Foo.h file.
4. Say Foo.h is like this:

class Foo

5. Move cursor to Foo(), open context menu and select "Move Implementation to Source File".
6. Let VA creates Foo.cpp.
7. Problem: Foo.cpp is not included in the project. I need to "Show All Files" in Solution Explorer and include it myself.

This doesn't happen if Foo.h is created by myself.

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


If you close and reload the IDE after creating the header file, and before creating the cpp file then the cpp file is correctly added to the solution. Not a very good work around unfortunately, but worth mentioning on the off chance it helps.
