          Returns the information which should be presented when a hover popup is shown for the specified hover region.

Method Detail


Object getHoverInfo2(
ITextViewer textViewer,
IRegion hoverRegion)
Returns the information which should be presented when a hover popup is shown for the specified hover region. The hover region has the same semantics as the region returned by ITextHover.getHoverRegion(ITextViewer, int). If the returned information is null, no hover popup will be shown.

Note: Implementers have to ensure that ITextHoverExtension.getHoverControlCreator() returns IInformationControls that implement IInformationControlExtension2 and whose IInformationControlExtension2.setInput(Object) can handle the information objects returned by this method.

Callers should ignore the text returned by ITextHover.getHoverInfo(ITextViewer, IRegion).

textViewer - the viewer on which the hover popup should be shown
hoverRegion - the text range in the viewer which is used to determine the hover display information
the hover popup display information, or null if none available
