Description Tomas Mysik 2012-11-19 09:44:56 UTC
If one completes any JS method and is providing its parameters, CTRL + p does not show any documentation tooltip (as Java or PHP does).

Still not here.

I jump on the bandwagon of those who'd like CTRL+P in JS, and in the meantime I also suggest something in the middle: could be that CTRL+P simply mimics CTRL+Space without the need to move the cursor on the function name?

At least we wouldn't have to move the cursor back and forth to see the doc.
That should be easy to implement and it's better than nothing.

I'm not sure, because the other bug report seems to talk about the invocation of method, like

abc. <-at this point it shows info (and nowadays it works)

while here Thomas is talking about CTRL-P that is
abc.method( <- CTRL-P should show AGAIN the parameters

Basically ctrl-p should simply do what ctrl+space do when the cursor is on the method name, just to avoid wasting time getting back with the cursor.
