Code Completion should show method return types. ESC should close popups and popups should NEVER cover any part of the line I'm typing.

Description
The Code Completion window should show method return type. Example:

string s = "Hello World";
s.ToCharArray

With the cursor at the end of the second line, I see one entry in the code completion window: "Method ToCharArray". In most cases, the return type is not so obvious. I would like this line to produce
Method Char[] ToCharArray
or
Method ToCharArray : Char[]

Code Parameter popups should always popup below the line I'm typing (prefereably 2 lines down so I can see the line below it, too). If I don't want the window up, I shouldn't have to click 9 lines up and then click back to where I left off to make the popup disappear just to see my cursor. ESC should close these windows (the way Visual Studio does it). If I press ENTER to move to the next line, the popup should move down with the cursor to uncover the line it was previously covering.

My comments regarding popup placement apply to other Borland IDEs as well.
