Expected outcome:

It should display the different generic parameters.

This is with the latest master.
Comment 2 Dave Thomas 2015-03-18 10:35:27 UTC
Do you have a link to code that exhibits this?

Actually, with the latest version, this problem has stopped appearing and instead it doesn't show anything. When we've solved https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=27459 which seem to replace all instances of this bug, we can continue down this bug.
Comment 5 Dave Thomas 2015-04-07 10:42:14 UTC
The aforementioned bug is now resolved in 5.9 ...
Comment 6 henrik 2015-04-07 10:49:16 UTC
Ok, I'll check up on it when 5.9 is released. Thanks Dave!
Comment 7 henrik 2015-05-01 06:35:28 UTC
Nope, not resolved in 5.9. See attached screenshot.

Still an issue
Comment 9 Dave Thomas 2015-05-28 08:42:57 UTC
When posting completion or tooltip issues could you include a code snipped that illustrates the issue?  

As it stands I don't know how to replicate a `DomainChunk`
Comment 10 henrik 2015-07-28 12:04:38 UTC
type A<'T> = { i : 'T -> unit }

Hover over A

This seems to be fine now. There have been a lot of changes to tooltip code recently.
