I'd like to know if there is some trick to getting tooltip or hover help when entering parameters in C++ functions or methods.|
I see that I can hover over a function and get a popup, and that's nice, but it disappears once I start entering parameters. This is an example of how it can work in Visual Studio:
The XML comments are similar to Doxygen. I was hoping Eclipse CDT might parse doxygen params, but it will only display them as a comment, and only when hovering over the function name. Ctrl+space while in the parameters only shows (int var1, float var2) in the above example, so any parameter details are not visible.
As an alternative, is there some way to make the Eclipse function hover open with a keystroke? At least that way I could open it up when needed without using the mouse, and I could open it in the middle of a long parameter list.
