Editor view

The C/C++ editor provides specialized features for editing C/C++ related files.

C/C++ Editor

Associated with the editor is a C/C++-specific Outline view, which shows the structure of the active C, C++ or makefile. It is updated as you edit these files.

The editor includes the following features:

  • Syntax highlighting
  • Content/code assist
  • Integrated debugging features

The most common way to invoke the C/C++ editor is to open a file from the Project Explorer or the C/C++ Project views using pop-up menus or by clicking the file (single or double-click depending on the user preferences).

The C/C++ editor does not contain a toolbar itself, but relies on the use of the main toolbar, edit menu, search menu and key binding actions.
