Description crimcat 2013-04-26 08:31:34 UTC
Current implementation of a popup hint over the enumeration constant element (hold Ctrl button when pointer is over the enumeration element) shown the following: "Enumerator XYZ of enum".
Sometime this is not enough. Suggest including the enumeration name and, in case if this element has a predefined value, also display this value.
For example, in case of the definition
enum Enumeration1 {
    ELEM_01 = 20,
bubble hint should contains the text like "Enumerator ELEM_01 = 20 of Enumeration1 enum".
