ReSharper 8.0 Web Help

Parameter Information is a tooltip that thoroughly describes all possible method signatures and parameters with relevant documentation when you're working on a method call. As you add new parameters, ReSharper hides all incompatible signatures.

Depending on your settings, this tooltip may or may not appear automatically while you type, but you can at any time display it by pressing Ctrl+PCtrl+Shift+Space with your caret over method parameters.

To show Parameter Information
  1. In the editor, position the caret within an argument list of a method call (or a new operator, indexer, etc.)
  2. On the main menu, choose ReSharper | Edit | Parameter Information, , or press Ctrl+PCtrl+Shift+Space.
    A tooltip will display with a scrollable list of signatures:

    Coding_Assistance__Parameter_Information

    Tip

    Depending on your settings, you can opt to display all available signatures, or just one signature at a time.

  3. As you continue typing parameters, inapplicable signatures are grayed out.
  4. Press Ctrl+PCtrl+Shift+Space / Ctrl+Shift+PCtrl+Shift+Alt+Space or use arrow buttons to scroll through the list and display summary for the currently selected signature. Cursor keys are still available to navigate through the source code.

    Tip

    Pressing Tab or Shift+TabShift+Tab while Parameter Information is shown for a method call, lets you navigate between passing parameters.
