I have an issue with tooltips that freezes the whole IDE for a view seconds. I have opened a C# solution with many projects in VS2005. One of the projects contains some javascipt api files. When I start tipping a variable name sometimes the IDE freezes and shows a tooltip of this js files. With the code in the screenshot I can reproduce this issue every time. What can I do to eliminate the freezes?

*ah* that was it, now I have added the .js file to one project, and added this project as a dependency to a second project, I can reproduce this pause and giant tooltip in the second project:
Thank you for your patience in helping me reproduce this problem.

Do I need to do anything in particular to use this .js file? I have added this .js file to an existing C# project, and then added the function:
to a .cs file in this project. All of the variable names are taken from the VA Outline view of this .js file, so these should be symbol names that are recognised, but I am not seeing any tooltips or slow downs. So I am assuming there is something else I need to do, but I don't know what that something is.
Looking more closely at the screen shot you posted, you have typed "l" but the tooltip seems to be for "o". Do the tooltips often seem to refer to the wrong item?

You can find a similar file here: http://raphaeljs.com/
The file is part of a project and other projects reference it.

What can you tell me about this API file, and how your solution is set up, to help me try to set up a test here?

Turning off this option does not make any difference.
Sorry, but it is not possible to send you the file.

Does turning off:
VA Options -> Advanced -> Display -> Enable automatic Quick Info ToolTips
make any difference?
including this thread ID or URL in the description, so we can match it up.

The option 'Display comments from source files when available' was already turned off.

Can you try turning off:
VA Options -> Advanced -> Display -> Display comments from source files when available
and see if this has any effect? I am wondering if the size of the comment in the tooltip is related to this problem. Normally VA limits how much text it will show in a tooltip, so I am not sure how you have such a large, and slow tooltip. Is that comment a single very long line? Ir is VA pulling in several lines of text that are not actually part of the comment?
