I recently got tired of debugging (when it works in TheIDE) of some numeric values and switched to enum, only to find that they are still displayed as numeric.

It would be great if the values were displayed like VS does.

Or just figure out how to compile and debug under VS Smile.

You can compile in theide and debug in VS. There is even a hotkey for that Smile (Alt+F5).

I will try to add enum support, if dbghelp.dll allows... (for now, file RM task)

You mean with "Mdbg.exe"? I don't know which is worse: the completely random debugging of TheIDE or an interface that is not as good as gdb Smile.

And how do you pass parameters to the externally debugged program...

No, you can start Visual Studio (e.g. from commandline or theide) and pass .exe as parameter. At least, it used to work, a couple of years ago. I know Tom Rylek, original U++ coauthor, was using VS for debugging all the time; I am quite happy with theide pdb debugger (well, now there are some problems it seems, but that will be fixed fast), that is I am not sure about current status.
