Code Editor: warning icon issues

  • The icon shown when there is a CodeMirror Warning on the content has the same mouse cursor as a link or button, but is neither. Would it be better to use a help cursor?
  • Is there another way besides hover to see the warnings? Users on touch devices won't be able to see them.
  • When there are multiple warnings on one line (such as a minified CSS file), hovering over the icon does not show the warnings. You have to hover just below the icon instead.

42129.diff should fix item #1 and #3. @joyously would you mind double-checking?

On mobile, tapping the icon should show the message, tapping the gutter hide it.

In 41830:

Code Editors: Improve cursor interactions on warning notices.

Fixes an issue where hovering over the warning icon didn't work if there were multiple warnings on the same line of code. Also updates the cursor from "pointer" to "help" when hovering over warnings and errors.

Props joyously, obenland.
Fixes #42129.
