Eclipse

  Asked By: Lorraine    Date: Sep 07    Category: Java    Views: 679
  

I was a fan of IntelliJ idea before. but recently
because of the wide range of Eclipse plug-ins and also
it's natural power and ease of use and also its fast
growing abilities and... ,I started to love it more
and more and more.

but one thing that seems a little annoying for me was
that I'd like eclipse to popup the javadoc of the
related classes and methods during coding while I use
the dot operator(which would be extremely helpful).
although it seems like, this feature should be
reachable easily as IntelliJ, but I wonder how I
didn't find it.

Taken From Eclipse "Help"

You can view Javadoc information by:

Opening the Java editor on a Java file.
Placing the mouse pointer over the element whose Javadoc information you want to view (a method name, for example).
Pressing F2 or selecting Edit > Show Tooltip Description from the menu bar.
To view Javadoc in an external browser:

Opening the Java editor on a Java file.
Placing the caret over the element whose Javadoc information you want to view (a method name, for example).
Pressing Shift+F2 or selecting Navigate > Open External Javadoc from the menu bar
Not sure about the dot  "." however if u use da new version u may assign ur shortcut key as u like.
