Visual Assist X is a plugin for Microsoft Visual Studio developed by Whole Tomato. It primarily enhances IntelliSense and syntax highlighting. It also enhances code suggestions, provides refactoring options and spell checking support for comments. It can also detect basic syntax mistakes, such as use of undeclared variables. Unlike ReSharper, Visual Assist X also supports C++.
As of November 2012, Visual Assist X currently supports Visual C++ 6 and all versions of Visual Studio (including Visual Studio 2012). Visual Studio Express editions lack third-party extensibility support and thus Visual Assist X cannot be used with them.
