I wonder if it is possible to separate the VA Snippets functionality from the C++ listboxes functionality. Currently, if one just wants the VA Snippets they must also have enable C++ on in the listboxes section of Visual Assist. Could these two functions be isolated from each other so that the user can decide if they want to use just one (say just the snippets or just the list box)?

Please and thanks,

It depends on exactly what you are looking for.

If you set:

VA Options -> Suggestions -> Suggestion and Completion lists -> Enable in C++ = Off

then this will stop both suggestions and snippets in C++ code. At this point you can still use the VA toolbar button "Insert VA Snippet", or if you map a keyboard shortcut to the command "VAssistX.VaSnippetInsert" in the IDE Options dialog, keyboard settings, you can open this menu with a keyboard shortcut.

Alternatively you can set:

VA Options -> Suggestions -> Enable Suggestion Lists = Off
VA Options -> Suggestions -> Suggestion and Completion lists -> Enable in C++ = On

so you won't get VA suggestions, but you will still get VA Snippets.
