Thank you very much Gib Bogle..

After thinking for a while i came out with one more solution..

I create a CMakeLists.txt file  with simple program provided by you.
And i also created  myprogram.cxx file containing only my includes  and an
empty main function.

It looked like this 

#include "vtkCylinderSource.h"
#include "vtkPolyDataMapper.h"
#include "vtkActor.h"
#include "vtkRenderer.h"
#include "vtkRenderWindow.h"                    // etc ...what ever need for
my project

int main()

return 0;
Now i used cmake 

And then i open the solution file in visual studio and started editing the
main function as usual. 

Now, i can take advantage of both cmake(i don't need the include all
libraries) and Visual studio (IDE - I get suggestion while editing).

Thanks again.
