I have a project with a main.cpp, stdafx.cpp and stdafx.h. (The precompiled header is empty apart from the "#pragma once".) The main.cpp contains just the following:

#include "stdafx.h"

class A
{
public:
    int Method(int a, int b);
};

int main()
{
    A* pA;

    return 0;
}

Now I go onto the empty line before the return statement and type: "pA->M(". This gets correctly expanded to "pA->Method(", but the parameter tooltip does not appear automatically. To make it appear, I have to press Ctrl-Shift-Space or remove and retype the opening parenthesis.

By simply disabling VAX (no other options changed), the behaviour becomes as expected: the tooltip appears as soon as the opening parenthesis is typed for the first time.

Is there some option I am missing, or is this a bug?

Visual Studio version: 14.0.23107.0
Visual Assist version: 10.9.2089.0

I was able to reproduce the problem here, thank you for taking the time to send the files in.

case=94912

The problem setting is the disabled VA Options -> Editor -> Insert () and closing } ) ] ' "

For now, you can enable the setting as a workaround.

Installing VS2015 Update 1 did not make a difference.

I submitted my settings to the contact form - thanks in advance for looking into it.

I wasn't able to reproduce the problem using VA build 2089 and VS2015 update 1.

Can you please try installing update 1 for Visual Studio 2015?

Can you please send in your Visual Studio and Visual Assist settings?

1. IDE tools menu -> Import and Export Settings -> Export selected environment settings
2. VA Options -> Performance -> Export Settings

So I can import them here to see if I can reproduce the problem here.
