Ctrl + MouseOver Code...

Gang:

Is there any specific name you know of or would like to see, for the IDEA
function invoked by selecting:

Ctrl + MouseOver Code

?????

Any suggestion?

I would say that it does two things:

1) it shows you the declaration of the method/variable/class

2) it shows you which items can be clicked on as hyperlinks

I guess the first is the more important, so I would call it "show
declaration tooltip".


(As an aside, Apple's HyperCard program had a really cool feature: you could
hold down the command and option keys (or some combination like that) and
all hyperlinks would be hilighted. It might be neat if IDEA would underline
all clickable things when you held down the ctrl key. It was only the other
day that I realized you could click on the @see JavaDoc tags to jump to the
method that the tag was referring to.)
