The enhanced syntax coloring of Visual Assist is designed to provide valuable information without impacting performance of your IDE, particularly when typing and scrolling. Most feature requests for additional coloring require a deeper evaluation of symbols in the source window, and that deeper evaluation would slow the IDE to an unacceptable level. Examples of such features include coloring of:
- parameters passed as pointers
- parameters passed by reference
Additionally, because Visual Assist is an extension to the IDE, Visual Assist is limited to coloring, font, and attribute changed permitted by the IDE.
