Description Dave Thomas 2015-08-14 05:09:58 UTC
For instance the following will not yield tooltips for the type or member:

[<TestFixture; Description("#Conformance #ComputationExpressions #Async")>]
type ``control stack overflow tests``() =
    [<Test;Ignore "Long running">]
    member x.``control stack overflow Tests``() =
        let failures = Core_controlStackOverflow.RUN()
        Assert.IsTrue(failures.IsEmpty)  Note

Notes from github:

This will need findLongIdents to look a bit more like findLongIdentsAndResidue used for completion. See: https://github.com/fsharp/fsharpbinding/blob/master/FSharp.CompilerBinding/Parser.fs#L319

In particular we will have to try parsing assuming both that we are inside a "tick" (or "raw") ident and that we are in a normal ident (as the current findLongIdents does), and then take the longest.

Bug demo

@Arpit, check my screencast. You can see that the double backticked type and function don't get tooltips, whereas the non backticked type and function do.

This is now fixed in the XS6 release.
