Visual Studio 6.0

The following editing features are new for Visual C++ 6.0.

Automatic Statement Completion

The Text editor now features Automatic Statement Completion, also known as IntelliSense. IntelliSense options put the MFC, Win32, and ATL libraries virtually at your fingertips, displaying class members, function prototypes, identifier declarations, and code comments at the cursor or mouse location while you're editing your code. Simple keystrokes insert code elements directly into the source code file in which you're working. IntelliSense also completes recognized words for you, saving you from having to repetitively type lengthy class or member names. See https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hcw1s69b(v=vs.60).aspx .

Quick Macro Recording

Similar to keystroke recording and playback, this feature is a menu shortcut to the more extensive https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc368517.aspx feature. You can record any action supported by the Developer Studio Object Model into a temporary VBScript macro by selecting Record Quick Macro from the Tools menu.

Resource Editor Support for Internet Explorer 4.0 Controls

The Resource editor has support for IE4 controls. You can use this support with or without the MFC wrapper classes. You can access the wrapper classes for Internet Explorer 4.0 Common Controls via the Controls toolbar of the Dialog editor, easily adding these controls to your forms and dialog boxes.
