Description Mikhail Matveev 2008-06-11 15:53:44 UTC
Type the beginning of a keyword, invoke CC, choose that keyword in a list. No details window appears. Perhaps it should.
Comment 1 Tomasz Slota 2008-06-11 17:06:55 UTC
I don't think it is a bug, we don't have it in Java editor. Sometimes it could be useful, esp. if it contained usage samples. Changing issue type to enhancement
Comment 2 polan 2008-08-13 11:32:24 UTC
This is not desirable to have this implemented, either in Java or PHP.
Comment 3 Tomasz Slota 2009-07-21 13:15:19 UTC
We decided it would be useful to have it, especially for showing PHP version compatibility.
Comment 4 Tomasz Slota 2010-02-10 08:44:30 UTC

Any news?
Comment 13 Ondrej Brejla 2013-02-12 10:19:06 UTC
No, I'm still not sure whether it should be in the IDE or not. I'll evaluate it for 8.0 again.

Created attachment 138012 [details]

Running the sanity test for php ( - Test suite: Code Completion - 9.Verify documentation hints for keywords.
It doesn't work.

Comment 15 Ondrej Brejla 2013-07-30 16:13:01 UTC
Yes, because this feature has never been implemented ;)
Comment 16 mrpc 2013-07-30 17:13:52 UTC
It should be removed from the sanity test then ;-)
Comment 17 mmolda 2013-08-28 12:29:56 UTC
In Sanity TS there is line: 

Verify documentation hints for keywords.
1. Check #199406

It is becase this issue was still opened and I don't know if this functionality will be implemented. As soon as this issue is closed/resolved, I will update Sanity Test Suite.
