Hey all, new here and new to both PyDev and Python. I was showing PyDev to another dev whose got a bit more experience with Python and he asked whether not PyDev is able to present a class/functions docstring as part of the code completion dialog.
I have no clue whether this is possible and how to enable it if it is?
Is it possible?
Can I get PyDev to display DocString data for the currently highlighted item in the code completion box?
It should do that automatically... are you trying this on something that has a docstring?
E.g.: if I do a code-completion for RuntimeError it will show the completion and after a few milliseconds the docstring pop-up will show just right to the completion pop-up.
It doesn't in my case:
Try the following:
m1#<-- request code-completion here and see if the dostring written above appears...
Basically, RuntimeError does not have a docstring in jython -- but that's because it's not just not there (actually, for RuntimeError, only python 2.5 would show a docstring).
That works. Thanks for the tip. Blah, I guess I should be a leeeeeeetle more patient with those pop-ups :-)
