Write this code


__time64_t tmUTC;
auto tm = *::_gmtime64(&tmUTC);
COleDateTime nowUTC{ tm.| };


The Pipe sign shows the position of the caret.
I type "tm." and "tm->" appears. And happens when adding more parameters in the initializer list every time I type tm.

PS: I know that tmUTC has an invalid value and need initialization...
Reparsing the file doesn't bring any fix.

I am seeing the same effect here. Thank you for the clear description.

case=148866

This is happening since VA thinks the auto variable "tm" is a pointer, even though you have dereferenced the function return type. If you are able to remove the global scope :: from the _gmtime64() function call then the bug disappears, at least for me. But I don't know if that would be an option for you.

This is possible. But usually I use the global scope :: operator, to signal the reader of the code that the function belongs to a classical external C/CRT Library...
Not really needed but a coding style here.

That makes sense. I assumed you were using global scope for a reason, and ideally VA should handle this correctly. You can also use Undo or Backspace to undo the dot being converted to -> when you don't want this. Another work around, but worth being aware of.
