    Hi,
    in the IDE it would be nice if I can right click on a library in the library list and open
    the documentation on the website.

    You can do something similar:
    - Hover over the type in your code and click on the Search Online link.
    - The first link before above the search results will take you to the documentation.
    In many cases the tutorials are more important than the methods documentation.

    This is good when you have already code.
    I had no code yet and I was looking for a function that repeats a character. I see there is a library called stringfuctions and stringutils.
    Maybe I find it there. It would be nice if I can right click on a library in the library list and open
    the documentation on the website.

    Now i have to integrate the lib, add the class to the globals and search, like fm. and wait what the combo shows

    Thats not efficent , for hobby ok , but for business it must go fast.

    Not necessarily, you can use the B4X HelpViewer.
