I'm trying to customize Xtexts' "hover-support" (this yellow box showing some infos about the element under the mouse curser). It was easy to follow the instructions in these two blog posts (thanks for this):
Now the problem: I refer to elements from another EPackage in my grammer (generated from a plain ecore model). Since the Xtext-generated editor for my language always supported "hovering" on such elements, I expected customizing corresponding yellow boxes shouldn't be any different.
Unfortunately my custom implementation of an EObjectHoverProvider is only called for EObjects of my grammer. But I can see that the base class (DefaultEObjectHoverProvider) is used for non-grammer EObjects. This means that in principle Xtexts' hovering implementation handles non-grammer elements as desired, but my custom EObjectHoverProvider is not involved. This is how it is registered in the UIModule of my grammer:
public Class<? extends IEObjectHoverProvider>
public Class<? extends IEObjectDocumentationProvider>
Can I do something to get this working without modifying Xtext framework code? I fear that this might be a bug...
