It`s not always reproducible but when working in "grouped-intellisense" Mode, the member-info tooltips do not show up most of the time.


using Gtk;

LinkButton lb;

//Switch to Grouped mode (ctrl+space)
lb.AccelCanActivate // No tooltip for this event
lb.Action // No tooltip for this Property

Sometimes it works for some members, but for most cases it does not work properly.

I don't think it has to do with the intelli sense mode, since it's not linked in any way to the tooltips.

I think it has to do with the parser - you're describing a problem where a parser error may cause that the ast isn't generated properly.

Try to look at the navigation breadcrumb - are you in a member in that case ?

Anyways we worked on these issues, but we need some time to release it to the public. It's all in the "newresolver" branch of md.
