Function arguments hints
« on: December 14, 2018, 02:17:38 pm »
Hello. I am new here, and i am learning c++ programming in code::blocks. My question is how do it enable function argument hints like in the following screen shot

I tried to find in the settings how to enable it, but didn't find anything. The following screen shot shows what i get when i try to see the hints.

As you can see it only gives me a, b, c, d, etc.  which doesn't tell me much.

This comes from the source code of your compiler/framework if your mingw compiler only uses a,b,c,d to define the macro, the hint of codeblocks can only show this. If your framework provider puts nice names into it codeblocks can show them... Nothing we can do here...
