Hello,

VA_X.dll file version 10.9.2094.0 built 2016.03.25
DevEnv.exe version 14.0.24720.0 Community
msenv.dll version 14.0.24720.0
Comctl32.dll version 6.10.10586.0

In C++, when a variable has the same name as an enumeration value, then the variable's colored as if was enumaration value.

enum class eFruit { Apple, Pear };

int main()
{
int x; // good
int Apple; // colored as if it was enumeration value
int y; // good

Unfortunately this is a known effect, and to a degree it is by design. Since our coloring code has to run quickly, to keep up with scrolling and moving around in files, and we are working behind the IDE's back, it is possible to confuse it like this.

This is something we are aware of, but there are no easy fixes.

Find References or Rename should handle this correctly, so one option, depending on how often this happens, is to rename the variable to avoid the conflict.
