Can we show default parameters in member parameter info similar to Visual Studio does it?

If we have a method declared as

public static void DoSomething(string what, int howMany = 3)

In the current version of the SyntaxEditor the ParameterInfo control will show

void ClassName.DoSomething(string what, [int howMany])

In Visual Studio the ParameterInfo shows

(string what, int howMany = 3)

It makes it easier to know what the default value is. Ideally it would be a small tweak to end up looking like this

void ClassName.DoSomething(string what, int howMany = 3)

Hi Marc,

I'm sorry but that option isn't available at this time.  The reflection data we store for parameters isn't tracking what the default value is.  It only knows if the parameter is optional or not.  I'm not sure we could even get the default value expression from a .NET assembly's reflection.

We'll write down this request though.

Thanks for the quick response

The latest build of this product (v24.1.0) was released 4 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
