Allow hyphens in VA Hashtags

By default, a VA Hashtag cannot include a hyphen. When a candidate string does include a hyphen, only the left portion can be a VA Hashtag. In the following example, "#foo" is the VA Hashtag in:

// #foo-bar

Current UI: You can allow hyphens in VA Hashtags, e.g. allow all of #foo-bar, via a setting in the options dialog for Visual Assist.

Visual Assist build 2231 and older

If you wish to allow hyphens in VA Hashtags, change the value of HashtagsAllowHyphens:

HKCU\Software\Whole Tomato\Visual Assist X\<IDE spec>\HashtagsAllowHyphens = 01

Set the value to 00 to restore default behavior.

Note: Candidates for VA Hashtags that consist of only hex characters and digits are ignored regardless of the value of HashtagsAllowHyphens.

Visual Assist build 2223 and older

GoTo Implementation (Alt+G) and GoTo Related (Shift+Alt+G) do not work from VA Hashtags with hyphens.
