Viewing Inline Documentation
For a project symbol or for a symbol from the project dependencies, WebStorm generates the documentation from the corresponding JSDoc comment. To create a comment, position the caret before the declaration of the method/function or field to document, type the opening block comment
/**, and press Enter. See JSDoc comments for details.
Documentation is shown in the Documentation popup.
When you explicitly invoke code completion, then quick documentation for an entry selected in the suggestion list can be displayed automatically. The behavior of quick documentation lookup is configured in the Show documentation popup in field on the Code Completion page of the Settings/Preferences dialog.
