VA_X.dll file version 10.9.2048.0 built 2014.09.22
DevEnv.exe version 12.0.30723.0 Professional

It seems that the new C++11 syntax for type aliases is not always recognized correctly.

This works:

using MyString = std::string;  // MyString recognized

void f()
   {
   MyString x;  // type recognized
   x.empty();   // auto completion works nicely
   }

But as soon as you put it in a namespace it no longer works:

namespace MyLocalNamespace
   {

   using MyString = std::string;

   void f()
      {
      MyString x;
      x.empty();
      }
   }

=> MyString is not recognized as type anymore (underlined), and other features like auto completion, ... as a result no longer work.

The same is happening if you use it inside a class declaration:

class MyClass
   {
   public:
      using MyString = std::string;

      MyString getString();
   };
