The following code block is used in a header file shared by multiple source files. Only one source file defines and initializes them. The rest just declare external ignoring the initialization.

This syntax works in Visual Studio 2008 and compiles correctly, but gnNextUniqueId, gsemUniqueIdAccess, and gsLinkListRoot, are not being recognized in Visual Assist X (version shown below -- the latest I have installed).

They appear as non-syntax-highlighted keywords that I can right-click on and "Go to declaration" just fine. And they show up in the Code Definition Window just fine. But, they are not highlighted by Visual Assist X, nor do they appear in auto-completion, but they all appear as keywords that have misspellings:

Best regards,
Rick C. Hodgin



#ifndef _isExtern
    #define _isExtern
//else in other source files, already defined as:
//  #define _isExtern extern
#endif


#ifndef _initialize
    #define _initialize(...) = __VA_ARGS__
//else in other source files, already defined as:
//  #define _initialize(...)
#endif


_isExtern    int                 gnNextUniqueId       _initialize(0);
_isExtern    CRITICAL_SECTION    gsemUniqueIdAccess;
_isExtern    void*               gsLinkListRoot       _initialize(NULL);

Can you please create a "va_stdafx.h" file, in the same directory as your solutions .SLN file, as explained in this FAQ entry:

http://docs.wholetomato.com?W302

and add the following two lines to the "va_stdafx.h" file:

#define _isExtern
#define _initialize(x)

I have done this here, and rebuild my VA symbol database, and this has fixed the problem with your sample code, so hopefully this will fix this problem in your solution.

Excellent, thank you for the update If you have any other problem macros then adding similar lines to the va_stdafx.h file will hopefully fix those as well. If not, please let me know and I will do what I can to help.
