I've been using VisualAssist for years but most likely know only a very small amount of its functionality, so please tell, if my requested functionality already exists in some form:

When looking at a typical MFC resource.h file it is far from obvious if all of the defined resource-IDs are actually in use.
In order to clean up, I would like to be quickly able to identify and remove those, which aren't.

In a manual-approach, I would select a defined resource id, say "IDC_BUTTON_1" and then perform a solution-wide text-search if it shows up anywhere additional to the current resource.h file. (In particular, if it shows up in the .rc files!)
If not, I would simply delete it.

Instead of a text-search, I can also use the "Find references" functionality (SHIFT ALT F)
******
Now my feature request would be to have a code-cleanup method for resource.h files which performs the task for all defined resource-IDs, i.e. all keywords defined with #define in the file and then highlights all that have no references outside the document. (with option to then delete those lines)

Unfortunately no, this isn't currently a feature that we have, but we are looking to add a feature that scans for unused methods and variables, and since this is a logical extension of this, I have put a note of this idea onto that feature request:
