When I hover my cursor a function in a header file of my C projet, I get way too much information (as you can see in the following screen shot).



If I disable Visual Assist, things are back to normal. Is there something I can do to disable only this? Here is what I get when I disable VA:



I'm using the latest version of VA and Visual Studio 2019 (v16.3.9).

The tooltip should not be word wrapped like that, it is making it much harder to read than it should be.

The comment being added to the tooltip is controlled by the VA setting:

VA Options -> Display -> additional comments when available

if you turn Off this setting this should stop this from happening.

As you can see in the following screen shot, this option is not currently enabled:

Apologies, that seemed like a sensible setting to try. Can you please try setting:

IDE tools menu -> Options -> Text Editor -> C/C++ -> Advanced -> IntelliSense -> Auto Quick Info = False

and also turning On

VA Options -> Display -> Show Quick Info tooltips for more symbols

and see how this works for you?

Well... It disables the VS2019 tool tip and only keeps the VA one which is a bit of a mess... I suppose my "Set \ Get" header (as you can see in the screenshot) is messing up the tool tip.



Is this something that can be fixed without changing my header format? I would do with only Visual Studio's Tooltip, but it seems like VA doesn't want to disable it..

(Note: when I change "IDE tools menu -> Options -> Text Editor -> C/C++ -> Advanced -> IntelliSense -> Auto Quick Info = False" first, i get no tooltip at all).

We are looking into a fix for the tooltip being to narrow for the comment block:

case=142047

for now, this should only be happening to this first function in this file. So a slightly ugly work around is to add a "dummy" function definition to the file, just after the Set \ Get comment block, so that this wide comment block is associated with this dummy function, so VA won't add it to any of the other, live, functions in the file.
