Intellij Plugin - Custom Json language documentation on hover, if "type = <insert someType>"

I created a custom language that works fine following one of the tutorials provided by JetBrains. I want to show some type of documentation when a user hovers over the type in my custom json language. I took a look at DocumentationProvider and created my own registered it etc, but I cant get it to trigger? Am i missing a step or did i do something wrong?


"Quick documentation" is invoked either on explicit user action (e.g. 'View->Quick Documentation' from main menu), or if user has enabled showing it on mouse hover. The latter option is available in 'Settings->Editor->General->Show quick documentation on mouse move' and is disabled by default.



@Dmitry thank you, that did the trick
