Hello,

I was thinking of a feature which might be useful in some cases. Say I started to write a class and I want to create an interface / abstract base class with a subset of the member functions of the initial class.

Here is a workflow example:
  • Right-click on the class name
  • Extract interface
  • A popup appears with all member functions (public, protected, private)
  • Press Ok
  • Write the interface class above the initial one with all selected member functions as virtual pure, copy the documentation if any
  • Modify the initial class to inherit from the newly created class and mark corresponding functions as override

As a bonus, it could create its own file.

We are considering doing this at some point. Thank you for a clearly thought out approach for how this would work, since it is good to see how you would see this working, and want to use this:
