If you look in the VA Options dialog, under Enhanced Listboxes, there are three check boxes for "Commit selections with:". If you uncheck only "Additional characters" then a listbox should not be accepted with anything other than Tab or Enter.

One more complete WTF:
https://image.ibb.co/kMzGFo/image.png

alt+G on result from line 347 jumps me to some random file inside libpng that happens to have this code:

png_fixed_point result;

Complete nonsense. Also, this happens without offering alternatives, like that's the only possible place where that var can be defined.

> At least one bit of good news, the message about VA not being able to edit the file should be fixed in our latest release, 2270:

I'm fairly sure that I've seen again that dialog right after I updated to 2270 today :)
Not sure if that dialog was from VS or from VS itself, but it was about readonly something.

This is totally killing me. How can it be possibly this bad?!

https://image.ibb.co/iwVqao/image.png

That's the function parameter name, how could it possibly show me these garbage suggestions?! Pay attention to line numbers in that screenshot. It doesn't even offer correct which should have been HttpClientTest.cpp:327

(this isn't the message that was lost as indicated by previous post. That message had something else and is lost now).

Is there any chance of getting a copy of a solution that you are working on that shows these problems, or even just some of these problems, so I can try to reproduce this here? I appreciate this is often not possible, but its worth asking on the off chance. You could send us something privately that would only be used for testing this problem.

For your last image, with alt-g on "results", if you do a Find References on "results" what happens? What sort of references is VA finding?

If you show VA Outline for the current file, does the outline look correct for this file, or does it look wrong? Clearly VA is confused here, but I am having problems pinning down why and what is going wrong here.

For flood control, if you want we can discuss this via email instead, there won't be any problems sending multiple email replies to the same case number. If this sounds helpful you can start the conversation via the form:

http://www.wholetomato.com/support/contact.asp

please include this thread ID or URL in the description, so we can match it up.

Request via that form was sent.
I have latest VA and I think I've read somewhere that this bug is fixed, while I'm still getting it: https://image.ibb.co/h3pm5o/image.png
Basically I get some warnings from boost headers, when I press F4 to open it in VS I get that dialog box popup from VA asking to modify a file.

The dialog you are seeing in your screen shot is the fix. Due to the way the file was opened, VA will have to re-open the file normally to be able to work normally. Are you seeing this dialog a lot?

I don't recall what was the reason in the first place VA added that dialog box to reopen file, but it's so freaking annoying that I totally don't want to ever see it. I don't care what the reason is. All cmake projects that use relative paths will end up with these weird unix paths and each file you try to open in VS triggers that box.
How do I kill it?

There is a registry key to stop this message box from appearing:

https://support.wholetomato.com/default.asp?W826

but please be aware that unless the file is reloaded, VA will be inactive in the file, due to the way it is being loaded. We are aiming to improve this setting to that VA can be told to automatically reload the file without prompting you in the next release.

case=116843
