Post by bridge_chen_26 » Fri May 06, 2011 10:50 am

Who can tell me?

Many thanks!

why is there no codelite symbol in the window-bar and it says 'lite editor'? did you install codelite with the normal win installer?
or is it just me, wondering about that?

regards,
nem

edit: ok, thinking twice, that can't be your screenshot since you don't get the info :P anyway, did you set all codecompletion paths correctly?

i meant the titlebar in your screenshot doesn't seem to be normal. there is no codelite symbol and filepath etc..
so i ask again. did you set your codecompletionpaths correctly?

Now i got your meaning.
it is my fault.
the comment can be shown in the codecompletion.
in fact, i want to know how to show the comment when my mouse float on a function.
i can get the declaration of the function like the ATTACHMENTS, but cant show the comment of the function.
showing the comment of a function is very useful for me to read the code.

thx for your reply!

Hi,

In Settings > Tags Settings: Display and behavior you need to check the Display function tooltip checkbox.

Regards,

David

Ah, sorry: I didn't read carefully enough.

I get the comment displayed with:
class foo // C++ style comment inline

but not when the comment precedes the declaration. I don't think there's currently a way to do that.
