Introduction

I switched from VS6 to VS7 and I wondered if it can be true that i can only add a member function by using the new "Add member function" Wizard. I searched for the sourcecode of the add member function wizard and found it in my Visual Studio directory in \Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET\VC7\VCWizards\MemFunctionWiz\HTML\default.html. I changed a few values and tested my changes in a new opened instance of VS7 and it worked. I added a checkbox, and changed a few things, and now I can enter a name of a function into the function name textbox like this "TestFunction(int nTest, BOOL bTest)", like good old VS6. It saves a lot of time. The checkbox exists to switch from old-style to new-style. If it is disabled I have to use the param list to define a new function.

  1. Open the default.html in notepad.exe

  2. Scroll to:

    <TR>
    <TD VALIGN="MIDDLE" HEIGHT="23" WIDTH="12">
     
    </TD>
    <TD VALIGN="TOP" HEIGHT="23">
    
    //Add this
    <input ID="CHECKBOXOLDSTYLE" type="checkbox" CHECKED>
    <LABEL FOR="CHECKBOXOLDSTYLE" 
    ID="OLDSTYLE_LABEL">Enter old-style function name</LABEL>
    //<-- end add
    
     
    </TD>
    <TD VALIGN="MIDDLE" HEIGHT="23" WIDTH="75">
    <BUTTON CLASS="BUTTONS" ID="FinishBtn" 
    onClick="OnFinish(document);">Fertig stellen</BUTTON>
    </TD>
    <TD VALIGN="MIDDLE" HEIGHT="23" WIDTH="4">
     
    </TD>
    <TD VALIGN="MIDDLE" HEIGHT="23" WIDTH="75">
    <BUTTON CLASS="BUTTONS" ID="CancelBtn" 
    onClick="window.external.Finish(document, 'cancel');">Abbrechen</BUTTON>

    If you save the default.htm and start a new instance of VS7, a checkbox appears on the bottom-left.

  3. Scroll to:

    function Validate(obj)
    {
        try
        {
            var bValid = true;
            switch(obj.id)
            {
                case "FUNCTION_NAME":
                {
    // Change the code to:
                    var strNameWithParamList = "";
                    if( CHECKBOXOLDSTYLE.checked )
                    {
                        strNameWithParamList = FUNCTION_NAME.value;
                    }
                    else
                    {
                        strNameWithParamList = FUNCTION_NAME.value + "(" +
                                               strParameters + ")";
                    }
    // <- end change
                    window.external.AddSymbol("FUNCTION_FULLNAME", 
                                              strNameWithParamList);
                    bValid = window.external.ParentObject.ValidateMember.....
  4. Save the file and try in VS7

  5. Finished, now you can enter a member function the old way.
