Tern configuration request to reduce arg hint tool tips - showArgHints

Hi Marijn,
Tool tip for function args is shown as soon as the cursor is within a function parenthesis. function(cursor-here).

Problem is that, it gets annoying with continuous tool tip popups, when we move the cursor over code with lots of function calls.

Some configuration to restrict showing arg hints only when
– user enters open parenthesis (, after the autocompletion of a string.
– Show tool tip based on a keyboard shortcut and/or a timeout

Please let me know if this can be brought into TERN or such a configuration already exists.


The updateArgHints method on the Tern addon is called explicitly by user code. You can change your code to only call it in specific circumstances, if you want.
