RSA-RTE: Context assist also in Code View

When editing in the editor window hovering above code will give context assist like... see image.

It would help if this was also available in Code View.

    This is a known limitation which currently is difficult to fix. The hoover tooltip is a feature provided by CDT and its implementation currently requires a full editor (i.e. it does not work in a view). Future versions of CDT may improve this so we can remove this limitation.
    Currently we recommend to use the Code Editor rather than the Code View for any serious editing of C++ code since there are also other limitations in the Code view when it comes to CDT features.
