I'm not sure what you mean, you want to see information for the symbol at the cursor?

If you want to see the pop-up with the Symbol Color, just hover your mouse pointer over the symbol. To make it go away without moving the mouse, you can use a cursor movement key.

I don't need the information in the pop-up. When I'm programing, I don't want to see what rule has been used to show the symbol color for me.
Do you mean I should press the keyboard to achieve this every time my mouse pointer hover over one symbol? Is there any other switch to achieve this in Tools->Options?

Sorry, I misunderstood. Unselect Options->Languages->Application Languages->C/C++->Context Tagging->Show info for symbol under mouse to change it for C/C++. Rinse and repeat for any other languages where you don't want it.

Thank you Tim.
The pop-up do disappear when I just put the mouse pointer on symbols. But if the cursor is also on the symbol, then the pop-up appear again. Do you have any method to close the pop-up completely?

Hi Tim, I'm appreciated for your help.
Maybe there is no such switch to turn off this kind of pop-up, or maybe it is hiding somewhere and waiting for us, hehe

If you post a screen grab of the popup, we'll have a better idea of what popup you are talking about.  It sounds like "show info for symbol under mouse", but Tim correctly instructed you to turn that off, so it must be another option.  I'm going to guess what you are seeing is related to auto-complete.  Options>Languages>Application Languages>C/C++>Auto Complete>Enable auto-completion.

OK, that helps, reproduced and fixed.  The fix will be in the next version of the v21 beta, and also in the next version of the hotfix for 20.0.3.
