Hi,

Testing out new version of VAX, I was excited to try out the HCB feature mentioned here: https://www.wholetomato.com/features/feature-tool-windows

But I don't see anything when hovering over objects/enums/namespaces etc. Only the usual tomato icon for quick refactorings context menu. Do I need to enable it somewhere in the settings?

Using VS2019 16.7.5.

Thanks

If you use the menu command:

VAssistX -> Tools -> VA View

this will show / bring to the front the VA View tool window, which contains the HCB. The HCB is the bottom section in VA View:

https://docs.wholetomato.com/default.asp?W222

after showing VA View make sure keyboard focus is in the editor window when hovering the mouse over a symbol, to get the HCB to update with the symbol type information.

Does this help?

If not, what, if anything, happens when you use the menu to show VA View?

I see the the upper two sections of VA View window but nothing for HCB. Mousing over a symbol when focus is in editor window shows no change, just looks as below...

I see the problem, thank you for the screen shot. It turns out that the top part of VA View has a set size, so if you resize the VA View window so it is taller the HCB will appear at the bottom, once you have made the window tall enough. Most tool windows I use only show a single "block" of information, so this isn't a problem, but since VA View shows two different blocks there needs to be enough height for them to show.
