B6 .NET tagging / symbol coloring oddity
« on: October 15, 2014, 04:19:16 am »
I just installed B6, auto-tagged the VS 2010 & 2013 .NET libraries for 4.5.  I see several using statements, such as using System, Symbol colored as symbol not found.
System types are colored Symbol not found.  Interestingly, it identifies IEquatable is an interface, but it colors it Symbol not found, also.

Is that fragment Visual Basic, C#, F#, or C++?  I tested with C# and no problem.

Are you sure you the .NET tag file was finished building?

I just rebuilt the tag files by opening the dialog, unchecking the "Build tag files using a background thread", and watching it tag VS 2010, VS 2013, and .NET.
From the attached picture, it looks like it can partially see it, since it correctly identifies System::DateTime in the Symbol list (but why not System.DateTime, since it's C#, not C++/CLI?), but not completely.
