How to quickly view method signature?

In Eclipse I was able to just hover over a method and view the method signature, yet I can't seem to find a quick way to do this in IDEA? If I have someInstance.someMethod(), I'd like an easy way to see what someMethod() returns without having to go to the implementation (ctrl-B)

Thanks

Ctrl-Q (Quick Javadoc) or, within the parenthesis of the method, Ctrl-P (Show Parameters).

Actually, to get more of an Eclipse-like feel, just hold down Ctrl and mouse over things.

IDEA did it perfectly before it was implemented in Eclipse...
Btw, you can use also auto popup for Quick JavaDocs for delay.
