Intellisense Bugs

I've posted about this before, but my use of C in Visual Studio isn't supported by Intellisense, however it is supported by the compiler.  This means that my code compiles without warning or error, but it's more difficult to edit as the editor falsely claims there are errors.

So I sent a report to Microsoft via their easy to use customer feedback menu:

Some time later, perhaps several weeks, I received email from a program manager on the Visual C++ team asking for further detail.  I compiled two cases, both in the same narrow usage of C, and send them in.

Here's one related to struct initialisation.

And another related to anonymous unions.

I don't hold out hope that Microsoft will fix them any time soon, or even fix them at all.  Their focus is on meeting more recent C++ standards, from reading their blog posts, and this is a niche part of their C support.

But fingers crossed.
