IntelliSense or function parameter tooltips or whatever for C++..?

Sorry if this might be out of place entirely.

Like this. Why does it exist for C# in Visual Studio 2013 but not for C/C++?

In Visual Studio 2013 I see something like this for functions and stuff.

Which I cant even find here in MSDN: http://msdn.microsoft.com/query/dev12.query?appId=Dev12IDEF1&l=EN-US&k=k(printf);k(DevLang-C%2B%2B);k(TargetOS-Windows)&rd=true

I am just a beginner, but this tooltip does seem rather useless..? Or can I set up to see something like in SciTE?

Also, I wonder if it can show a list of my variables like in SciTE when I write their name.

Have you tried searching the extensions for VS? I only code in C# in VS2013.

Visual Studio cripled Intellisense for VC++ several versions ago (at least 2010, maybe earlier) because VC++ is so disasterously complex that the Intellisense tables are resource hogs. Unfortunately Microsoft doesn't look to be restoring the feature completely.

Does that mean there are actually better IDEs than VS for C/C++ because of that? Or the other features still make it superior?

I've never used an IDE I like more than Visual Studio. Microsoft is actually just making the push to C# in general over native programming. C++ isn't Microsoft specific but .Net is.
