The XList is a template-list class. In File <Xlist.h>
template<class Type>
class XList {
 //...
  void SortAndCompress();
}

Changed The function signature.
class XList {
 //...
  BOOLSortAndCompress();
}

In the project cpp file,

Even I click the function-reference,Goto Xlist.h file,And Reparse it for times,The nagavite-info is Still the originl.
bug?

Is this xlist.h some kind of system header? Visual Assist reparse system headers infrequenly for performance reasons as described here:

See "Stable versus Other Directories" section.

(1)
Xlist.h is not The system file,It's a header file contain a doubly linked list class-declear which I develop for my own use on another static-lib project.
Xlist.h not the file belongs the same project I current opened(which I found the bug),That file and the current project locate on E: Disk but different dir.

(2)
For consideration about the performance,to parse some files infrequently is right.As I have metioned the day before yesterday,I Alt+G + Reparse the Xlist.h File ,The Info is still not updated.
what;s the problem?

I saw VS2008 in an other thread so I will use that for my question.

Did you add the directory (where xlist.h is located) to an include directory list? If yes, is it on the global or project specific list? In other words:

Global includes:
Tools -> Options... -> Project and Solutions -> VC++ Directories (Include files)

Project specific includes:
Project -> (proj name) Properties -> Configuration Properties -> C/C++ -> General -> Additional Include Directories

The Xlist.h is locate in project specific list.
i.e
Project specific includes:
Project -> (proj name) Properties -> Configuration Properties -> C/C++ -> General -> Additional Include Directories
But Not the Current project Directory.



And I have a test that if I put the Xlist.h file to the project Directory,If I change the Memeber function's signature,The reference can update synchronously.

VA 1918 IDE:vs2008 sp1

Thank you for the explanation. Unfortunately I wasn't able to reproduce the problem.

1. Does it help if you enable the following option?
VA Options -> Performance -> Watch for externally modified files and reparse when necessary

If step 1 does not help:
2. Can you please try rebuilding your symbol databases to see if it makes any difference?
VA Options -> Performance -> Rebuild

If step 2 does not help:
3. You mentioned that xlist.h is in a different project which is not currently open. Does that mean it is in a different solution as well?
4. Can you please

  1. create a clean new win32 test project
  2. create a new header in a different directory
  3. put it to the additional include directories list
  4. restart VS so VA can apply the change
  4. include the file in a cpp
  5. press alt+g to jump to the header
  6. try to modify it
  7. is the change picked up by VA?

I used an extremely simple header file for my tests:

#pragma once

template <class T> class someclass
{
    bool foo();
    void bar();
};

I tried adding / removing parameters, etc. and the changes were picked up by VA. I am wondering what would you see with this deliberately simplified scenario.

Yes,The project is not very small. Only <5 cpp and <6 h files.
I do the test use it.
And Right now, I have do the test use the original larger project.
The changes were picked up by VA.But It may need some time,I notice the function someclass::bar()(same as your class)which I change the signature,temporary become invalid(Red line under it) for a while.And after a press Reparse cmd in the current cpp file that refer the someclass::bar(),it's then successfully recognized.

And I test again ,Found that Reparse cmd in the current cpp is acquired,otherwise the refered someclass::bar(), is keep invalided.

Can you confirm that which VS and VA versions are you using?
Are you using any other Visual Studio extensions?
How large is your file in lines that you're making modifications in?
What type of drive are you keeping the files on? Is it a "regular" drive or some kind of "virtual" or network drive?

One idea that might help is that can you please make a copy of your larger project and than just keep the solution and the project file? (.sln, .vcproj)? Delete the file references from it (using solution explorer), and start creating new files in an attempt to try reproducing the problem. My idea is that the problem might be related to the project or solution file or a setting in them. Maybe. This way, if you could reproduce the problem, would you please send it in, so maybe I would be able to reproduce the problem here?

no,I'm sure.
quote:

I's only a Test head file.have several lines only.
That's All:
#pragma once

template <class T> class someclass
{
public:
	bool foo(){return true;}
	void bar(){return;}
};

quote:

It's "regular" drive.
I has create a new console32 prj to do a test.
Found that:
First,I modi the prj's setting:
[Additional Include Directories]{ ..\\..\\mylib\\inc}
The Test header file:Header1.h is located in ..\\..\\mylib\\inc}.It's content is memtioned above(code block).
(1)I do the Test in Main cpp,When I first include "Header1.h",And put the caret on it,The negivate line is blank even a 1-2 min later.however,I manually Ctrl+o open the Header1.h and parse it.
Then the VA negivate bar dipslay the Header1.h file's path.Is bug?
(2)I change the member func void bar() to bool bar().
After wait a while,The VA may itself reparse the Heade1.h file,The negivate bar disp-info is really updated automatic.But a noticeable delay.May 1-2 minutes.My VA's settting in Performance section is all checked.

Can you please zip it up and send in your test project? 1-2 minutes sounds like way too much. It should more like 1-2 seconds. In not very large files, it should be around 1 sec.

You can use the following form to send files in:
http://www.wholetomato.com/support/contact.asp

Please paste the URL of this topic to the description field so we can match it up.
I will try reproducing the problem here.

1) In order for Visual Assist to pick up the new Additional Include Directories, you need to restart VS.
2) I got the test project, thank you. However, unfortunately, I wasn't able to reproduce the problem here using the test project.
Can you please export your Visual Assist and Visual Studio settings and then send them in?

To export VA settings:
VA Options -> Performance -> Export

VS:
Tools -> Import and Export Settings

Anyway, 1-2 minutes is a long time. Are you sure you didn't mean 1-2 seconds?
If you meant 1-2 minutes: what did you do before the changes has appeared on the navigation bar? (the void -> bool change) You were just waiting?

This morning I try it with VA_Test prj again.I do change (the void -> bool).and Save the change and press Reparse cmd for header1.h.
Then goto the cpp file.
The bar() is under redline.I wait 2 min(No other action but mouse-click text in text-editor),the redline is keep intact.
I must press Reparse cmd with the cpp,then the redline disappeared.The negavite bar is updated in the meantime.
