Is the following the only way to correctly use Implement Virtual Methods?
1. Go to header file.
2. Move cursor to class name
3. Open Refactor context menu and select Implement Virtual Methods.

I ask this because when I open Implement Virtual Methods under a class name in cpp file, for example under Tree in the following code:

void Tree::foo() {

Then VA merely inserts the following in the cpp file:

virtual void grow() override

Now the 1st problem. Notice the invalid virtual and override, and more importantly, the missing class. The correct code should be:

void Tree::grow()

And the 2nd problem, VA does not insert declaration of grow() to the header too.

Interesting, it had never occured to me to try triggering Implement Virtual Methods from a function implementation like this. I am seeing the same problems, thank you for the clear description:


In case you don't know, the override keyword is controlled by this setting:


and should work correctly when you trigger Implement Virtual Methods from the class declaration.

Build 2042 exposed the "override" registry setting on the Refactoring page of the VA Options dialog.

Build 2047 no longer allows Implement Virtual Methods to be executed from function implementations.
