Maybe you're using CDT? If you use JDT this is there for quite some time:
And the button on the left allows to configure how the problem is shown
in the editor.
I didn't know that... That's pretty cool to understand
that most good ideas we repeat now are already implemented somewhere in
Now the question is more, how comes that such a tool isn't known from some
(most?) of us? I'm pretty sure that the "F2 to focus" is to blame.
I never hit F2, it's too far away from the space bar. And moreover, I didn't
expected something so cool to be hidden, so I never thought that focusing
was providing so much new powers. The current "F2 to focus" message
doesn't tease me enough to make me actually hit F2 and see what it's worth.
That's a general criticism I'd make to Eclipse IDE (similarly to the some
others UX things we already discussed there): some big powers are hidden,
difficult to guess, difficult to access, forgotten. For this specific example,
what would it cost to show the whole popup by default, with an option "F2
for shorter version" ? A few pixels lost on screen when hovering?
It's a very low-cost for highlighting those cool informations without additional
Also, those icons are very complex, and I wouldn't click on them before
hovering and checking what's the tooltip is. So why not directly showing
them directly with a description? Adding them as quickfix would provide
that and would append those 2 actions to the list of quick fix.
