      When trying to get a hint as to what parameters are required by a method, typically you use CTRL+SHIFT+SPACE, however this doesn't work in the Groovy editor

        I happened to fall on the code in JDT that does this and thought I would port it over to Groovy-Eclipse. It took longer than I thought, but I have it implemented and the tests are now passing. I will commit this work soon.

        The behavior implemented is not exactly the behavior described in this bug. You do not need to press ctrl+shift+space. Rather, context information will appear whenever content assist is invoked inside of a method call and the cursor is not inside of an argument.

        OK. Committed the fix. The good thing about this new feature is that it forced me to fix lots of small corner cases with invoking content assist in all locations.
