Visual D not showing structs and not showing intellisense for certain types
August 05
in my code I have

auto mainWindow = (cast(ApplicationWindow)mainBuilder.getObject("MainWindow"));
auto mainPaned = (cast(Paned)mainBuilder.getObject("MainPaned"));

When I try intellisense: 'mainWindow.' a list shows up(quite large unfortunately but better than nothing).

When I do the same for mainPaned, nothing shows up(well, the default Object methods).

I'm not quite sure why. Not sure if the json does not have that information(it should) and it definitely has paned stuff, but something is wrong.

Ok, I just changed the variable from local to global and it shows. My mainWindow was actually a global!

So, it seems either to be some issue with auto. Let me make it explicit: No go! for some reason locals are not working with intellisense in this case ;/ Making them globals allows me to view it.

if I sort of alias them they work:

e.g.,

auto mainlocalPaned = mainPaned;

then mainlocalPaned can access intellisense. (when mainPaned is a global).

It seems to be some bug in visual D interpreting the locals(when they are defined directly. Maybe it doesn't pick up on the cast and doesn't know the type? (see's auto but for some reason misinterprets the type?)

Strange bug ;/


maybe related to this one also:

mainWindow.addOnConfigure(delegate(GdkEventConfigure* e, Widget w)
										{
																					return true;
										});

e and w do not list any information in the watch, locals, or auto. I think I mentioned this one before.




Basically it just shows the address or something like

[gtk.Paned.Paned]	D0006: Error: Type resolve failed	

or sometimes I get e = {}

and I cannot expand {} in to list e's values. (I think this happens when the variable is a struct)

I noticed that for another local variable not showing the members, it shows something like

static main..value init

for the init member. Maybe the double dot is a bug and doesn't work with the the other members. It's listed when you do do a single dot, the intellisense box pops up then the grey side box pops up similar to the definitions list.

Also, when I do something like gdk.Window. I get a list of everything. Should the intellisense not simply return what is inside gtk.Window?

In fact, it seems to do this with many variables. Just throws everything at it. I have a global class and when I use intellisense on it, it gives me everything, not just whats in the class.
