Thank you for suggestion, I installed the trial version of VAX yesterday and my first impressions are not too much great.
The only thing I found useful in VAX is this:
- It shows comments in hover tooltip better (ex. comments above UFUNTION/UPROPERTY) which default intellisense does not, so I don’t need to use GOTO feature to see comments.
- Support for UE4 in options, provides suggestions for UE macros.
The rest is more or less the same as intellisense, except that suggestions are somewhat faster(but not very much) but at the expense of less aggressive suggestions.
include directives do not work well and do not respect “C++ directories” setting, for example as I type #include “Compo…” no suggestions are provided by VAX I need to type entry folder name so I turned VAX suggestions off in options and continue to use intellisense for that whose suggestions seem to be of more quality.
I know many people complain how intellisense is slow, but problem is that many people don’t know how to set up intellisense in the first place, for me intellisense works faster than instantly even with UE4 projects. (which are really small right now as I discover the engine).
Please don’t attack me as I’m just discovering VAX for now, so very likey I do something wrong with options, but overall it does not impress me too much.
