"Map" containing present elements? [message #723057] Wed, 07 September 2011 10:17 Go to next message

Hi,

inside AbstractModelQueryCompletionProposalComputer class the method addAttributeValueProposal has a map containing all the inserted attributes.

At the moment I am working on addEntityProposals(ContentAssist, ITextRegion, CompletionProposalInvocationContext)

Let's suppose I have something similar:

<family>
 <mother>Lisa</mother>
 <father>Bob</father>


Now I call content assist and for example I get proposal for <daughter>...ok...is there a way to know that <mother> and <father> have been already inserted?

Thanks
Marco

No, you'll have to get the list of child nodes from the parent. The ordering can matter, so a Map will not give you enough information.

Ok, thank you.

I have something similar:

<family>
 <mother>Lisa</mother>
 <father></father>
</family>


Let's suppose cursor is between "father" tag and content assist is called.

At the moment I am working on addEntityProposals method.
I have access to ContentAssistRequest

ContentAssistRequest.getParent() gives me back "father"

I should use ContentAssistRequest.getParent().getParent() and I get "family", then using getChildNodes() I get a NodeList containing all the children nodes (mother and father in my case)...but how do I get their content?

If I print out every child node I get:
#text
mother
#text
father

Why?

If the cursor is between the father start and end tags, father is supposed to be the parent of what you insert.

Getting their content requires using the DOM API from org.w3c.dom.Node and its subinterfaces; #toString() has no such requirement.

Those are Text nodes in the DOM representing white space not contained under the "mother" and "father" Elements. There should be one trailing "father" as well.

Ok, I got, thanks.

Another question:

if I have
<Book title="aaa" author="bbb" price="12" year="2011" />


I can use an XPath expression to see if some conditions are verified, for example:
local-name(.) = 'Book' and @title

If the result of XPath expression execution is true...do something, otherwise do something else.
In this case I built an expression directly on a Node, and that's ok.

In the case of NodeList, how can I do the same task?
I would like to see if NodeList has some nodes, for example, but using an XPath expression.

Thanks

Yes, ok, but I can not understand why in my NodeList I also get, as children elements, #text elements...

I mean...I get why I have in the NodeList...but is it possible to have only tag name inside NodeList?

For example only "father" and "mother"...nothing else, I do not want #text or #comment
