It will be parsing your code in the background and enable all the fancy C++
support features (Code-Hinting, Code-Completion etc). Good question what the
slider does, it sets some kind of delay... Its documentation should be on the
TODO somewhere ;)

By default, the KDE API documentation is generated by doxygen. If you use the
older KDoc, you can enable it there.

Parsing C++ is really slow, so you can pre-parse code (for example the Qt
library or the kde-libs). The Code will only be parsed once and all symbols
will be saved in a special binary file which will be loaded when you open

CTRL-Space and CTRL-J should pop-up the completion.
