[ JDK VERSION : 1.5.0_03 ]
There should be a hover to show javadoc pop-up for a type.
it means that when i put the mouse over a variable of some type it let me to use
Shift+mouse hover to show the javadoc pop-up or some hint.
but the hint shold allow user to change it to javadoc pop-up by pressing for example CTRL+Shift+F12
My colleagues that use Eclipse have been begging for this feature.
While browsing code they don't want to leave the mouse, and use the keyboard to pop up javadocs.
Hovering isn't used at all yet in the NetBeans editor. This would be a good use of it.
This works great for PHP code, displaying the PHPDoc for a class/method/property when you CTRL + Hover over it.
It should work the same for Java code. It's annoying that you have to place the caret into the word and hit CTRL + SHIFT + Space to see the JavaDoc.
