More detaied C++ context sensitive help in Momentics?

I am switching from using Blackberry OS java development in Eclipse to BB10 C++ development in Momentics.  With Java, I could get very thorough documentation by hovering over any java class or method.   But in Momentics, the only C++ I see when hovering over something like "std::string" is this:

============================

// basic_string TEMPLATE OPERATORS
template<class _Elem,
    class _Traits,
    class _Alloc> inline
    void swap(basic_string<_Elem, _Traits, _Alloc>& _Left,
        basic_string<_Elem, _Traits, _Alloc>& _Right)
    {    // swap _Left and _Right strings
    _Left.swap(_Right);
    }

typedef basic_string<char, char_traits<char>, allocator<char> >
    string;

====================================

 

Is there a way to enable more detaild C++ documentation?

If you click on the pop-up there is often more information, by scrolling the box, but apart from that what you see is what you get.

Re: More detaied C++ context sensitive help in Momentics?

I am familiar with the extra icons that appear in the help hover popup in eclipse+java, but I am not seeing any such icons in Momentics.  With java, one of the icons is "Open Attached Javadoc in Browser"

 

Can you give me an example of a keyword that does produce such icons in C++/Momentics?

 

How do all of you C++ developers get your documentation?   Do you rely on sites such as:

 

http://www.cplusplus.com/doc/

http://en.cppreference.com/w/

 

..instead of relaying on integrated IDE help/docs (which I can't locate in Momentics for C++)?

In my case I rely on over 20 years of working in C and C++. :smileywink:

 

It's the new Cascades stuff I need the pop-ups for.
