VAX doesn't appear to find functions that are defined implicitly by putting a "using namespace" declaration at the top of the cpp file.

I'm not sure if this is a bug in the compiler or in VAX but, ISTM, that VAX should work with the compiler's behaviour, not with the "ideological universe".

If you put a class inside a namespace and then define its member functions within the Namespace too:

using namespace MyNamespace
{
void MyNamespace::MyClassName::MyFunction()
{
}
};

it will work fine. However, if you use the implied-namespace syntax:

using namespace MyNamespace;

void MyClassName::MyFunctionName()
{
}

then the VAX Alt-G won't recognise the definition and will refuse to go there. The Net 2003 compiler recognizes that MyClassName is inside the namespace MyNamespace and is able to complete the resolution implicitly (i.e. the code compiles and works). Can you make the VAX parser do the same thing, please? :)

This is with build #1434

This also does not work (classes and functions could not be found) for 1434.

namespace MyNamespace
{
void Function()
{
}
}

namespace mynm = MyNamespace;
mynm::Function();

Problems:
. Function() is underlined as error.
. When Alt+G while the cursor is on Function(), it goes to the mynm namespace definition (namespace mynm = MyNamespace;) not to the actual Function.

Yes, just for the record, I've noticed that it also underlines enum values that are not fully qualified with the namespace (but are perfectly legal values).

I assume these problems are all caused by the same bug manifesting in many different ways. If not, can someone add a ticket for this problem as well?

obirsoy i have reproduced the underlining, but only when i place the function call inside a function, which makes sense. this should be covered by the current case.

peck797 this should also be covered by the same case.
