This is using HaxeDevelop and OpenFL version 3.6.1 (because of compatiblity reasons with HaxePunk)
I recently updated all my libraries (I think I had been using a very outdated version of OpenFL). But with more recent versions of OpenFL I don’t get any function/parameter descriptions during autocomplete anymore.
For example, if I previously typed
myBitmapData.noise() in HaxeDevelop I’d get a small tooltip explaining what the function does. aka
Fills an image with pixels representing random noise. and then an explanation for each parameter.
But now I only get the function and parameter names/types.
It seems this is because all the descrptive comments have been removed from all the classes somewhere around version 3.5.x. Is there a specific reason this was done?
And is the above issue expected behaviour? If so, is there any way to access these hints without having to look up the docs?
Or is this an issue with HaxeDevelop and should I ask there?
