I'd love to see a feature to generate constructors for classes and structs. I'm constantly using structs and I have to manually write out my constructors. A feature like this would save me so much more time on top of the time that VAX already saves me. :) (thanks for an amazing tool)

For example: (generation of constructors for the members also - however, maybe a setting that would determine the depth of constructors and even a setting for default values of types?)

struct Test
	int32 prop;
	uint8 test;
	bool bcool;

	Test() : prop(0), test(0), bcool(false) {}
	Test(int32 p, uint8 t) : prop(p), test(t), bcool(false) {}
	Test(int32 p, uint8 t, bool b) : prop(p), test(t), bcool(b) {}

Unfortunately no progress to report just yet, but this is down as something we want to add quite soon. It's just that there are lots of feature requests and bug reports to juggle, as I am sure you know yourself.

Interesting that JetBrain's does this, I have added this fact to the feature request, it's certainly worth being aware of, thank you for that.

Has there been progress here? I see JetBrain already supports this, and I rather stick to Visual Assist.

We are considering adding a feature to do exactly this, and you are right, it should work for struct as well as class:


default values of types is something we are a little wary off. It's reasonable to offer default values for the built in types, but complex types won't have obvious default values.
