Visual Assist is a plug-in for Microsoft Visual Studio developed by Whole Tomato Software. The plug-in 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 September 2017, Visual Assist supports Visual C++ 6.0 through most versions of Visual Studio, including Visual Studio 2017 and Visual Studio Community 2017. (Visual Studio Express editions lack third-party extensibility and Visual Studio Code uses a separate extensibility model, thus Visual Assist cannot be used with them.)
