Visual C++ - intellisense not picking up struct fields

basil365 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12

I have a c++ program with a struct defined in a header file

typedef struct
	std::vector<PenaltyData> homePenalties;
	std::vector<PenaltyData> awayPenalties;
	bool _goalLastPeriod_;
	int _lastHomeGoalTime_;
	int _lastAwayGoalTime_;
	int _homeScore_;
	int _awayScore_;
	int _homeInitScore_;
	int _awayInitScore_;
	int _homeInBin_;
    int _awayInBin_;
	int _period1HomeScore;
	int _period1AwayScore;
	int _period2HomeScore;
	int _period2AwayScore;
	int _period3HomeScore;
	int _period3AwayScore;

} SimulationDetails;

Open in new window

This structure is not appearing as an option in intellisense (whereas another struct in the same header file is) in a file that references the header, and no fields are appearing on any instances of the struct that are created.

Can somebody explain to me any potential issues?
