Could you please add %GUID% (like currently %DAY%, %MONTH%, etc.) to Autotext and Code Templates?
This macro should generate a new GUID and insert it to the code text.
I often create a new interfaces, they looks in code as:

IMyCoolInterface : public IUnknown

This will allow me to speed up this process.
I think this feature will not take a lot of time and will be quite useful.
Also, it will be useful if you planned to add code templates for IDL language.

A great way to solve the problem of extending %WHATEVER% variables, would be that if its not a builtin name, VAX tries to resolve it to a macro name. If it finds a macro with this name, it executes and inserts the return value of it.
If it does not resolve to a macro, it could try to resolve it to an environment variable. I think this would cover most possible scenarios.

Hello, I'm looking for the same feature, as I need to take whatever the command line tool generated and insert it into the file. It would be great to get %GUID% for now at least. Any progress on this?

you can use $GUID_DEFINITION$, $GUID_STRING$ and $GUID_STRUCT$ in 1432 and above. see this page for a complete list of autotext tokens:


totem i am not sure if this will do what you want, since this relates to autotext, not converting tokens inside source files, presuming this is what you are referring to.
