Whole Tomato Software delivers productivity tools for C++ and C# development, including one of the most popular plug-ins for Microsoft Visual Studio. Visual Assist fills gaps in the coding experience of Studio, making a great IDE a phenomenal IDE, by providing unmatched functionality for navigation, refactoring, code generation, debugging, and more.
Some of the key features Visual Assist include:
It is a commercial plugin that supports Visual Studio versions 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019, 2021 and 2022.
Features in Visual Assist
Move about your code with newfound ease—to any file, method, symbol, or reference in your projects and solutions. Get anywhere from anywhere.
The navigation features of Visual Assist, like the other types of features, are entirely new to the IDE, improve built-in functionality, or in a few instances, apply only to older IDEs.
Code Inspection & Modernization
Inspect your code for specific quality issues as you edit. The Code Inspection feature of Visual Assist, based on LLVM/Clang, diagnoses and fixes typical programming errors, like style violations, interface misuse, and bugs that can be deduced via static analysis.
Reduce the complexity of your code, improve its readability, and make it extensible without changing its external behaviour. Refactor legacy code, code you inherit, or the first version of your work.
Code Correction in Visual Assist
Watch Visual Assist correct mistakes as you make them, especially errors in symbol case and pointer notation. Type entirely in lowercase, and watch it correct the case of all of your symbols. Save the shift key for your definitions.
Code Assistance in Visual Assist
Write code faster with assistance that doesn’t get in your way, especially when you’re on a roll. Visual Assist suggests completions only if they save you serious typing, and quietly fix mistakes in your wake.
