I am surprised there isn't a feature for adding typecasts? With all the various forms in C++ it would be great to have a tool to add a typecast. I imagine it is a pop-up with a field for type (auto filled from context?) and a radio button style list of the cast types.

Is there a technical reason this isn't available, or something else?

Are you talking about dynamic_cast<>() and static_cast<>(), along with the unchecked direct casts? Or are you talking about something else here?

Personally I just use a VA snippet to do a cast, and then type in the target type.

It sounds like you are looking for something a little more complex.

What are you starting with? Just a variable? A variable being assigned to a different variable? Something else?
