Hello and thank you for the suggestion. We plan to eventually support CodeLens for C++. How that will work remains under discussion, as there are some performance implications to consider, particularly for the “Find All References” aspect of the feature. Since we require running candidates through the IntelliSense compiler to successfully validate references, C++ code by its nature is more tricky and slower to build than .NET code, and the existing CodeLens experience requires all this to work in real-time on multiple functions at once, it’s something we need to be careful with.
We will keep you posted once we have a more definitive plan. Thank you for helping us build a better Visual Studio!Simon Geard commented
In terms of lines of code we have, using a Goldilocks analogy:
C++ = daddy bear
Fortran = mummy bear
C# = baby bear
New code is written in all three languages so C++ would be (by far) the most beneficial.Simon Geard supported this idea ·
