From: Struan Donald Date: 21:41 on 03 Oct 2006 Subject: Visual Studio's resource editor Apparently the key to Microsoft's success is their developer tools. People are always praising them. These are people who have never resized a column in Visual Studio's resource editor only for it to be set back to the default width when they used CTRL-S to save the file. Perhaps after long enough this behaviour becomes endearing as opposed to enraging.

It had to add/delete/move/resize rectangular boxes, this kind of thing. I ended up with the exact same repaint bugs I've been noticing in the resource editor in VC6. These bugs are apparently bundled as a standard OLE component, some CRectTracker thing. It leaves various stripes all over your screen at times. That said, VC (AFAIK) still computes the closest approximation of "go to the definition of a C++ name, resolving a hundred different types of ambiguities in the process" known to mankind today. Which is probably handy when developing a huge program in a huge team with a huge amount of pointless classes and overloading and such like.
