It seems to VAX do not handle template function return types correctly.

Try this example:

class cLilu {
public:
	int poke;
	int peek;
};

template <class T> class tRef {
public:
	int apple;
	int banana;

	template <class TF> TF* GetAs()
	{
             // code
	}
};

void Lo(void)
{
	tRef l;
	l.GetAs<cLilu>()->peek;
}

In this example, peek will be an unrecognised variable for VAX. Intellisense recognises it and I keep checked "Get content default intellisense", but I would like to use VAX's others features also

Thanks for your help.

using VS2003 and VA 1549 I added this code to a cpp file, and if I press CTRL-SPACE after "->" then the correct items are suggested. This is with "Get content from default Intellisense" turned off.

I am not seeing any underlining by VA either, but alt-g on "->peek" fails. Are you seeing other problems, or is this just it?

I am not completely surprised VA has some problems here, templates have traditionally been a tricky area for VA.

Yes, Alt+G fails, and Find References, rename, etc. also do not work on this symbol.

Any plan for generally improving template support? At least in next major beta phase, when regressions are more acceptable (I mean a general parser improve can lead to regressions)

Please! This is the only one major shortcoming of VAX (for me)

If I can remember correctly, you said "build 1301" had a great template support, so you CAN do it again! What do you think?

Actually, back in 1301 better template support was a very common topic on the forum. The compiler can take as many hours as it wants to sort out complex template code, we need to sort it out quite a bit faster

Template handling got a lot getter around VA 1446, when the parser was re-written, but it is still not 100%.
