How much of a problem is the lack of intellisense for C++/CLI in VS2010 for you?   [Edit]

Survey period: 24 May 2010 to 31 May 2010

The word is it will be added back, either as a service pack or in the next release, but time constraints meant it had to go. Survey suggested by Ian Lindsey.

Yes DLLImport is nice but their are times, big times, when it is a headache. For example working with DirectShow c++ code, i.e. capture filters written in c++, and wrap up all the nasty code with working with the video capture graph so that in your little c# program you can work with a high-level webcam capture entity as if it was written in c# itself.

Yes you could write a c++ dll that returns some data and exposes some control functions... but that means in c# you have to have a ton of interop wrapper definitions, and every time you change something in the c++, well now you gotta update the c#.

C++/CLI is the easier way to NOT have to do any of that. You can work with the c++ objects from the comforts of a CLI class... i.e. you can work with the pointers and safe pointers etc etc. You can specify how to cleanup and finalize objects in the c++/cli... so that means no calling of "Free()" functions in c#, or else memory leaks... just let the object go out of scope like a c# object.

And when you compile, simply add reference to the C++/CLI project and off you go. No pesky interop stuff to work with... CLI really a pleasure to work with (intellisense would help) :P
