Can anyone tell me the name of the component pop-up while we hover the mouse on any java class name within the eclipse editor? It has give us the comments and annotations which presented in the top of that class name (if there) or just give the class name within one pop-up window. And while we press F2 that pop-up window getting control. How can we get that pop-up component through code.?

Eclipse itself is built using the SWT components, so the actual tooltip and popup controls are based on SWT. However, the code that actually sets up specific controls for display and use is part of the editor. In this particular case, it would be the Java editor, which is one of the standard plugins bundled with the Java development Eclipse distros.
