    Unhappy DDRAW and intellisense

    Hi all,

    I'm new to directX and I'm having a problem.
    I'm using visual studio 2003 and directx 7's ddraw.

    The problem is... when I type in


    The parameter's info box doesn't show up like it would do with say a window's function, SetPixel(...)

    (but if I write in the correct parameters, the program works)

    why isn't my intellisense working for it?

    I've tried manually adding the "ddraw.h" file to the project too. But I've had no luck

    I've been trying to google this problem for quite a while now and haven't found a solution.

    Try deleting the .ncb file for the project.
    Gort...Klaatu, Barada Nikto!

    Thanks for your reply Mike.

    But deleting the .ncb file didn't work

    I've been using DDraw from the DX9 SDK with Visual Studio 2008.
    I had a similar problem which I solved when I reinstalled everything on my new machine.

    I don't know if it'll work for you, but it's worth a shot...

    Try reinstalling the DirectX SDK, and when you get to the point where you can select which compnents to install, make sure you install DirectX Symbols as well.

    This will fix/update/whatever your .ncb files and enable intellisense to pick up the relevant details for the DirectX functions.

    Hope it helps.
