Updating Boost Intellisense in CodeBlocks
« on: April 11, 2012, 06:52:34 am »
Hello all
and thank you for the great features being implemented to the CB .
i recently tried using boost and found CBs Boost intellisense very very helping and great , thank you very much for that , i mean it .
i have a request though , what i noticed recently , is that , it seems the itntellisense needs t be updated , several keywords were not in the intellisense .(e.g  boost::posix_time::microsec_clock )
so would you please consider that in the near future ?
and i also want to know if it is possible to make the intellisense like the Visual Studios , where each keyword has a description, when selected , pops up . is that possible with the current intellisens ?

thank you again in advance :)

boost::posix_time::microsec_clock )
Sorry but this is not a keyword. A keyword is something defined in ISO C++ standard and cannot be provided by a library.
Current CC doesn't support templates very well and boost is heavily templated, so this is probably the reason why you don't
see it in the code completion drop down.

It can be improved, but it is very hard to do and as far as I know no one is working on it. Volunteers welcomed :)

I've been keen on working on that for a long time. :)

I'll update tonight and study the CC plugin for a while.
