Not a Bug Event hint description..

    Not exactly a bug, but still..

    The event hint description gives NONE info about the only thing that matters - the expected value for this field.
    I had to dig into the code to understand.

    I'm not sure what you're reporting exactly. As it says, the individual events will list the value of the hint. For example:

    Yea I understood that after looking in the code..
    But by "events will list the value" I can't really understand that the value should be a class name..
    This is my experience at least.

    Class name is: XenForo_Model_Post. There are hints for template, here you give the name of the template as hint. Such as: forum_view. Maybe the suggestion is to put an example hint like
    • "Event Hint: Name of the class that is being loaded. Example: XenForo_Model_Post"
    • "Event Hint: Name of the template that is being rendered. Example: forum_view"

    I'm going to call this "not a bug" as it's debatable as to what may be clear vs what's not. I have tweaked the hint description to try to make it a little clearer though:

    Truth is, a simple example is all you need to understand xenForos addon system.

    A very basic "Hello World" example with all different ways to accomplish a "Hello World" message on xenForo (accomplished with either: extending ControllerPublic, Template Edit, Template Modification, Callbacks etc.) would be very useful.
