PDSOE: Show code assist info on hovering over method name (better:ABLDoc info)

  • Under Review

In PDSOE while hovering over a method call in your code a tooltip shows up like this:

"MethodCall: <method name>"

This is more than useless.

Why not show the information the code assistance would present (parameters, parameter types)?

Even better: If available, show the ABLDoc info of this method!

Regards,

Oliver

  • This has been added to engineering backlog for consideration when planning next releases. Thank you!

  • This is something the OEDT plugin is capable of...

  • We have a handy feature "Hyperlink to Declaration" already planned for the next releases. This feature as name suggests would give user the ability to hop onto the declaration of a class/method/variable directly from any of its reference. This feature would take care of forming a direct link among references and declaration. Displaying the code assist info along with method signature for methods and ABLDoc info could then be done as an extension of it.

    With both these features present in our backlog, they can be expected to be delivered in subsequent release if not in the same.
