We would like to do Test Driven Design with:
* MS Visual Studio 2010
* C++ (not .Net)
* Visual Assert (a UnitTest add-in for MSVS)
* VA_X

When we code this in a unit test...

Widget* p = new Widget();

...and Widget does not exist, VA_X offers to create a new method, which is OK.

But, of course, what we would like it offer is to create a new class named Widget, put it in its own file and make a header for it too.

Is there a way to do this now? Planned for some release soon?

I need to make TDD fast and easy so that it will be easier to convince my group to use it.

This is planned but is not imminent.

I could see different use cases for this. Would you prefer it happen silently or would it be ok to prompt with choices (and default selections) for:
create in new header (default) / create in current file

if create in new header is selected:
edit field to name file (defaulting to classname.h)
option to generate matching source file (default on)
