[VS2015 Community/C#] - How to turn on Parameter Info/Quick Info explanations?

    Question

  • Hello!

    I was wondering how one would enable the tooltips that contain descriptions and explanations when typing methods, etc. when using Intellisense. Mine's coming up with just the basics.

    I (think) I've installed the necessary documentations in help... Intellisense, Quick Info and Parameter Info are also enabled under options|text editor.

    Here's an explanatory image: imgur.com/a/HFk4M

    Thank you in advance! I've been at this for days...

  • Hi,

    You could invoke parameter info feature following this:

    1.On the tool menu,click option

    2.And then click General in C#

    3.tick the parameter information box like this:

    And you might turn on Quick info in this way:

    On the Edit menu,click IntelliSense,and then click Quick info,like this:

    By the way,we could use the keybord shortcut CTRL+K,L for Quick Info and CTRL+ K,P for Parameter info.

    Hope it helps.

    Please check the checkbox of the Parameter information.
