C++ Other Hints

Use this settings page to configure other kinds of inlay hints in C++.

Namespace name hints

A large project can have any number of namespaces, which sometimes are nested or even do not have a name. In such cases, hints of this kind will indicate what namespace is being closed by the current brace:

JetBrains Rider: Inlay hints. Namespaces.

Use the Visibility selector to choose how inlay hints for namespaces should be displayed in the editor : choose Default to apply the general visibility preference from the Editor | Inlay Hints | General page of JetBrains Rider settings , choose Show Always or Never Show to always show or hide hints, or choose Push-to-Hint to hide the hints by default but show them when you press and hold Ctrl.

Preprocessor directive hints

Preprocessor directive hints help you quickly understand how conditional inclusions (#ifdef, #ifndef, #if, #endif, #else, and #elif) correspond to macro definitions:

Reference hints

According to the Google C++ Style Guide, non-const reference parameters are not allowed, except when required by convention or in some rare cases. But when this is your case, there are reference hints:
