    Default How can i say eclipse that i need explaination to this function?

    Hello,
    I am a hobby programmer, and make a little program for chromecast.

    In eclipse when i do:
    string.get then i get options from eclipse to do. For example getString(), getCharacter(), getSomething... and beside always the explaination of this function.

    But with chromecast i have new functions and have no explaination beside. The functions are here but no explaination?

    How can i add these explainations to the functions?

    I know a noob question, I am sorry.

    Greetings
    Paul

    If you point your mouse at a method call, Eclipse tries to find its definition, so it can list the entire method signature (and its return type) and it searches for the source and its documentation comments; for the core classes, Eclipse can find them (as you already saw) but it can't find the sources for the methods in the chromecast jar file. If you do have the sources, point Eclipse to them; if you can't find how to do that, let us know (I don't have Eclipse available right now).

    kind regards,

    Jos
