Linking to enum values produces non-functional links #937

I noticed today that, when I tried to link to an enum's value, this produced a link that was not working. Looking at the output HTML, it seems that linking to an enum value is actually impossible, as only the enum title gets the id attribute. I suppose the way to go here is that a link to an enum value will result in a link to the enum itself.


 * Link to {@link SomeEnum.AVALUE}
var method = function() {

 * An enum
 * @enum
var SomeEnum = {
  AVALUE       : "avalue",
  ANOTHERVALUE : "anothervalue"

This will result in a link to global.html#SomeEnum#.AVALUE, which does not work. I suppose it should rather produce a link to global.html#SomeEnum.


This is very closely related to, and possibly a duplicate of, #724. I'll keep this open for now, though, since it may be hitting a slightly different code path than the one I was chasing in #724.

@hegemonic hegemonic added this to the 3.3.x milestone Mar 4, 2015

And possibly related to #970 as well?
