Suppose I have a header file bar.h:

namespace foo 

class bar
  void someNewMethod();

} // namespace foo

And an implementation file bar.cpp:

#include "bar.h"
using namespace foo;

bar::bar() {}

When I select "Create Implementation" for bar::someNewMethod() the following lines are added to bar.cpp:

void foo::bar::someNewMethod()


But the "foo::" detail on "foo::bar::someNewMethod()" is unnecessary. One aggravating side effect of this is that when I list the methods in the file, all the foo::bar:: methods get segregated from the bar:: methods.

And it isn't just "Create implementation" that does this. If use "Change signature" on a bar:: method it gets transformed into a foo::bar:: method. If I do "Extract method" I get a foo::bar:: method. The expected result is that the "foo::" gets left oft because of the "using namespace foo" statement at the top of the file.

case=20637 is fixed in build 2380.

Thank you for the very clear problem description, I am seeing the same thing here, in all of the cases you are describing:


That should not be happening, apologies for this. As a temporary work around, for the Alt-M list, can you try opening the Alt-M list, and then right clicking into the list its self, not the context field at the top of the list, and turning Off "Include Scope", this should help, since it will remove both the class name and namespace from the entries in the alt-m list.
