Hi i'm using vs2019 16.9.5 with cmake and opening a solution as a folder, and with git. Whenever I switch branches or revert changes, VAX doesnt pick up the file renames and I need to clear it symbol db and cache and restart VS to get it to see the list of files in the solution correctly.

is this a known issue?

VA_X.dll file version 10.9.2399.0 built 2021.01.26
DevEnv.exe version 16.9.31229.75 Enterprise
msenv.dll version 16.0.31227.257
Comctl32.dll version 6.10.19041.844
Windows 10 10.0 2009 Build 19042.985

When you say switch branches, do you mean switching git branches?

If so, are you doing this within Visual Studio, using some form of git integration, or are you using git outside of the IDE to switch branches?

Hi feline, thanks for the quick reply. I'm switching git branches using the command line in a console window.

It turns out that this has actually come up before:

case=116692

VA should handle switching git branches if the switch is triggered inside the IDE, via git integration, but obviously since you are doing this outside of the IDE, VA does not get a notification from the IDE about this. The command:

VAssistX -> Tools -> Reload Solution

was added to help work around cases where the change is not picked up by VA.

Unfortunately I don't currently have an estimate for when this will be fixed. The reload solution command was added as a work around, since from the "outside" it is not clear how the IDE is picking up the git branch switch, and without knowing how the IDE is doing it, tracking that change is hard. So the case is still open, for when we are able to pin down what is happening here.

This thread should be updated when this is fixed, and we also list the changes in the release notes, if you are interested in checking what has changed in a new build.
