Inlay Hints

Inlay hints are special markers that appear in the editor and provide you with additional information about your code, like the names of the parameters. Other types of hints inform you about annotations, usages, and so on (depending on the language).

In inlay hints settings, you can configure which types of information you want to get in hints.

For details on the C/C++ specific hints, see Parameter hints for C/C++ and Type hints for C/C++.
