Perform Polyspace as You Code Analysis in Visual Studio

Polyspace® as You Code helps you find defects and coding standard violations while developing in the Visual Studio® IDE. You can run an analysis and fix findings as you code, saving you from finding bugs late in the development cycle. When connected to the Polyspace Access™ central repository, Polyspace as You Code highlights new issues compared to the development baseline.

The examples in this guide show you how to:

The examples assume you have a working knowledge of Visual Studio.

Before you begin the first step:


#include <string>

class Demo {
    void myFunction(std::string buffer) const{



#include "example.hpp"

int simple_defect(){
    uint32_t x = -1;
    return 1 / x;
