As you can see below, I get my class comments twice. If I disable VAX, then I get the nicer version only (what I want).

I cannot find an option in VAX that seems to disable this unnecessary (and distracting) repetition of the comments.

Help!




BTW, your forum can't handle an image file name with spaces in it. I get a broken image link unless the file name has no spaces :(

Can you try turning off the option:

VA Options -> Advanced -> Display -> Display comments from source files when available

does this make any difference? I would expect this to fix the problem.

You might also want to try turning off:

VA Options -> Advanced -> Display -> Enable automatic Quick Info ToolTips

Both of those are already turned off, and were before I reported this issue.

I tried turning one and both on, and the settings appear to change in the preferences dialog (i.e. they're saved & shown as I specify them), but no effect can be seen from toggling either one or both.

That's unexpected. Are you seeing this problem on all types, or only types declared in your project?

Is this problem type "CLockOutNotifyMessages" from a stable include directory? Its not shown in italic, but you may not have turned on stable symbols in italic.

It's from one of the projects in the current solution (it is in "MFC Toolbox Library" which is included in a number of large solutions)

I keep the italics off - I don't like the way they look.

This is with VS2012SP1, and the current stable release of VAX

I assume this is an internal project, not a standard 3rd party library, since I am not finding any results for it on a google.

If this tooltip problem is specific to this library then this suggests there is something about how the code is written that is triggering this. If you do an alt-g on this function, is there a comment on the declaration and the implementation? Or just one of them?

I'm getting this behavior both for our project (MFC Toolbox Library) and for MFC source files as well (i.e. they are part of MFC's standard library).

I was able to reproduce the problem:

case=73217

VA seems to always display the comments from header files. The disable only works when the comment is placed in the cpp file, it seems.

Ah! Thanks for investigating this. I tend to put the comments primarily in the headers... occasionally in the .cpp files.

It would be great to have this working properly - or at least a clear set of rules to use.
