  • Blog Post: Debugging Trick

    My colleague Kang Su (that's his first name) came by my office yesterday to borrow a book. You might think a story that starts like this couldn't possibly lead to anything interesting. This tale is compelling though so hang tight. So the book in question was Debugging Applications for Microsoft .NET...
  • Blog Post: Useful Code: Swap .h/.cpp

    Over the past few weeks, for a number of reasons I have been working on a number of macros to extend the functionality of Visual C++. The first reason is that I have been giving preparing demos for various talks, such as Gamefest (which I mentioned earlier) as well as PDC. In these talks, we stress the...
  • Blog Post: GameFest I

    I've spent the past two days at GameFest, presenting some tips and tricks for the Visual C++ IDE and talking to game developers.

    Have you ever been coding inside a class/struct and you wanted to know just what members were available to you in that scope? Have you ever found yourself typing this-> just to see those members? Well, there's a new shortcut in VC 2005 that allows you to do just that! CTRL+J will show you a dropdown...
  • Blog Post: Find symbols VC6-style using CTRL+D

    Many developers complain about the fact that the traditional search box that pops up when using CTRL+F stays open after finding the first instance of the symbol in question. This forces the user to perform an extra keystroke (namely Escape) and just does not fit in the expected experience of many. Thankfully...
