Auto Popup parameter info disappears

When woking with Typed datasets method invocations can become very lengthy. To work around this I usually split the parameters over a couple of lines like so:

TypedDataSetRow row = TypedDataSetInstance.AddNewTypedDataSetRow(
val1,
val2,
val3
);

But as soon as I hit enter the Parameter info pop-up disappears and never returns. Even if I retype the opening brace and then navigate back to the pont I'm working it disappears.

I'd liek it to stay, hovering above the first line of the invocation. Any chance his could happen?

It would be very nice if hitting ',' or hitting ctrl-space after a '(' or ',' would trigger this parameterinfo thingy aswell.

Hello Jesse,
P has always done this! But, along a different line - there was an item a while back (can't find it, sorry) regarding a bug where the auto-pop-up after dot wasn't working (now fixed in 203), BUT if following a chain of pop-ups hitting 'dot' on an auto-complete menu doesn't bring up the next one - one has to press ]]>
again!

It would be very nice if hitting ',' or hitting ctrl-space after a '('
or ',' would trigger this parameterinfo thingy aswell.

Also when you do:

Str. You'll get zilch aswell. While I expected: string.[IntellisenseMenuThingy] As a side note, why ctrl-p (it's too far away from keys you hit normally during completion (',',, and ]]>), why not ',' aswell, it would be so much easier.

Ctrl-P is for "Parameter Info" ... easy to remember.

Hello Jesse,

Weird, that works for me in 203/VS2003

Also when you do:

Str<ctrl-space>.

You'll get zilch aswell.

While I expected:

string.[IntellisenseMenuThingy]

As a side note, why ctrl-p (it's too far away from keys you hit
normally during completion (',',<ctrl-space>, <space> and <enter>),
why not ',' aswell, it would be so much easier.

It might have something to do with the fact that my memory is low (see other post) and the fact that the processor is on the slow side (P4 2GHz, but performs like a P3 800Mhz).
