Function List shows function and macro calls

  • The Function List for C seems to not work correctly, as it shows a construct like

    if (Test())
    //do some stuff

    as a function. If my mind doesnt play tricks on me it didn’t behave like that a few months back or was something like that always wrongly matched?

    Unclear what you are talking about. If you are talking about Test(), well, then I agree with the Function List as that sure looks like a C function to me.

  • @Scott-Sumner,

    I think @Username0815 was complaining about it treating the use of a function the same as the definition of a function:

    There are two functions in my example c program: main() and Test(). But the Function list shows 5 – two are the definitions of main() and Test(int x), and three are calling the Test() function with various arguments. In my experience with Function List (which I admit, I don’t use often), I expect it to just show the definitions (and possibly declarations), but not every instance of calling the function.

    That said, my installation of Notepad++ is v7.5.6, so this behavior has been around for more than “a few months”.

    @Username0815, could you provide your ? > Debug Info… > Copy debug info to clipboard… that will help define a range of versions where it’s happening.

    You should try out the TagsView plug-in. It does most (if not all) of what the function list does, and it does a lot more.

    Hope that helps.
