Hide a C++ code block from Intellisense

In order to work around some Intellisense deficiencies in MSVC++ 2010, I would like to "hide" some code block from Intellisense, but not from the compiler. For example:

#ifndef INTELLISENSE
void foo(); // compiled, but skipped by Intellisense
#endif


I'm looking for the exact name of this
INTELLISENSE
macro, if such a macro exists; or an equivalent way to do the same thing.

Answer

The proper macro for VC++ 2010 is __INTELLISENSE__, as described in this blog article: Troubleshooting Tips for IntelliSense Slowness
