How to get api docs on mouseover?

In BB java i am used to access the class documentation (javadoc) to a class/method as a tooltip in eclipse.

If that was missing you could install the javadoc jar and attach it.

 

How can i configure the NDK/Eclipse CDT to display the documentation instead of the class template?

Is there something i have to install?

Re: How to get api docs on mouseover?

The latest versions (BB10.0.09 Beta 3) of the Momentics IDE in the NDK include libhover (http://www.eclipse.org/linuxtools/projectPages/libhover/) capability. You should be able to hover over most API components to display a pop-up window that shows a description of the component taken from the API documentation.

Re: How to get api docs on mouseover?

Installing the beta 3 did not solve the issue, it only resulted in the MyLyn task list view no longer working.
Guess i have to spend another hour to uninstall/reinstall, tried to fix it without uninstalling the NDK for the last hour...

Maybe it is something Qt related?

When i hover, for example, a QLists at method i get:
template <typename T>
inline const T &QList<T>::at(int i) const
...

what i would like to get is this information:
