I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Recognise methods annotated with the "override" or "final" keywords as virtual.

    Certain CppDepend rules rely on the "IsVirtual" method, however this only identifies if a function has been actively decorated with the virtual keyword which is not required by the standard.
    Whilst fully exploring the tree to identify whether a function has a v-table entry or not may be a large task, c++11 added the keywords override, and final, and usage of these on a non-virtual function is an error, as such it should be a fairly simply task to also identify functions decorated in this way as virtual.

    • Select multiple entities in Class Browser

      I want to be able to select multiple entities in Class Browser and send them all to rows/columns of Dependency Matrix. Another possibility is that I want to _append_ entities to Dependency Matrix rows/columns, in this case I will be able to add them one by one.

            It would be nice to manage vs2015 builtin types such as char32_t. Clang support it with this flag -fms-compatibility-version=19

                • Provide physical dependencies at a source and include files level

                  Well known authors and architects like John Lakos talk a lot about Large Scale C++ Software Design and most of it deals with the consequences of having our classes and functions (i.e. components) present in source and include files... This is completely another perspective and I believe it is not covered by current CppDepend
                  Otherwise your tool is EXTRAORDINARY!!
                  Please consider this...

                  • Allow user-defined project-wide variables/properties

                    I've been factorizing my rules across all my projects and I've been reduced to set the maximum violation allowed among each project as the default value. Allowing developers in the lower count projects to violate rules more than I would like to.

                    I came by a little trick using my project prefix to do something like this :

                    warnif count > 0

                    let Prefix1ProjectCount = (from p in Projects where p.Name.StartsWith("Prefix1") select p).Count()
                    let Prefix2ProjectCount = (from p in Projects where p.Name.StartsWith("Prefix2") select p).Count()

                    let Prefix1CeilCount = 42
                    let Prefix2CeilCount = 18
                    let DefaultCeilCount = 0

                      Why "Windows development" always mean "MS Visual studio development"? I am C++ developer under Qt and now CPPDepend is useless for me.

                      • Hi, Can I get #include hierarchy graph from CppDepend?

                        Hi, I have interest with CppDepend.
                        I have a question.
                        Can I get #include hierarchy graph from CppDepend like ProFactor IncludeManager? (http://www.profactor.co.uk/includemanager.php)
                        I'm ok only if I can get result with text format (like Properties -> Configuration -> C/C++ -> Advanced -> Show Includes in Visual Studio 2013).
                        Thanks in advance.

                        • support MSBuild well-known properties correctly

                          Visual Studio projects don't analyse cleanly if they use certain MSBuild well-known properties as parts of paths:
                          E.g. MSBuildThisFileDirectory is guaranteed to contain a trailing backslash (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms164309.aspx). Therefore in the directory "c:\foo" the expression "$(MSBuildThisFileDirectory)bar.props" must expand to "c:\foo\bar.props", not to "c:\foobar.props" like in CppDepend.

                                CQLinq and CppDepend views are very useful to go deep inside the code base.
                                It will be nice if we can Integrate the result of other static analysis tools like cppcheck, to query them from the CQLinq.

                                    • Make possible to define groups of projects

                                      This would be especially handy to see dependencies between groups of projects in the matrix or in the graph. Groups of projects could be also useful for grouping code elements in rules or query results.
