Hi All

right now i am using CodeAssistant in my plugin with the help of
CompletionProposal API, i want show Context Information along with the
proposal. But the problem is, i don't how to integrate the proposal with
context information. That means whenever proposal selection changes, i have
to change the proposal information.

i am using context information like this.

IContextInformation info = new ContextInformation(displayStr, "Message");
proposals[proposalCount++] = new CompletionProposal (displayStr,
documentOffset, 0, displayStr.length(), lclsDesc.createImage(),
completion.trim(), info, "");

it's right or we have manually change the context information on the events?

thank u

Ratish, what are you trying to accomplish, and what does not work as you
would expect?

Notes on terminology: "Context information" is the small tooltip that is
shown once a proposal has been inserted (for example, the parameter
hints after inserting a Java method proposal).

"Additional information" is shown while the proposal popup is presenting
the choices. An example for this is the javadoc information shown for
Java proposals. See ICompletionProposal::getAdditionalProposalInfo().

What is the "proposal selection"?

Sounds good to me - the proposal popup should show "Message" once the
proposal is applied.

Which events?

Hello Tom,

Thank u for ur replay,

i want display the documentation information while proposal popup is
presented. i am giving additional information in
my CompeletionProposal constructor, but still i am not seeing the additional
information

proposals[proposalCount++] = new CompletionProposal (displayStr,
documentOffset, 0, displayStr.length(), lclsDesc.createImage(),
completion.trim(), info, "Information");

any other way to set additional information?

Rathish, simply use the other constructor of CompletionProposal and pass
in the additionalProposalInfo parameter.

Hello Tom

as far as is know, in the another constructor we don't have additional
information parameter. I think there must be some way to trigger it.

Thanks
