Visual Assist is a plugin for Microsoft Visual Studio developed by Whole Tomato Software. It primarily enhances IntelliSense and syntax highlighting. It also enhances code suggestions, provides refactoring commands, and includes spell checking support for comments. It can also detect basic syntax mistakes, such as use of undeclared variables.
As of March 2015, Visual Assist supports Visual C++ 6.0 and all versions of Visual Studio, including Visual Studio Community 2013 and Visual Studio 2015. (Visual Studio Express editions lack third-party extensibility support and thus Visual Assist cannot be used with them.)
