I am new in Xtext and read the book Implementing Domain-Specific Languages with Xtext and Xtend. Now I have a problem with evaluating the content assist in the test implementation (with xtend) for the entities example (page 122).
I get some options for code completion when I press CTRL+Space on 'entity' but I do not get 'attributes'.
Manual edting 'attributes' works fine without syntax errror.

Hi,

to be sure to get you right. this is a question on content assist when writing xtend code.

here is what i observe:

you get attributes proposed if you type the . and then hit crtl space
you dont get the . proposed after entity since xtend considers that not worthy to propose (free free to file a enhancement request)

Hi Christian,

thank you this helped, I did not enter the dot.
You are right, I edited xtend.
I found out that in my installation I have to enter a dot and another letter i.e. 'entities.x'.
Then I have to move back with the cursor between the dot and the x.
then CTRL+SPACE activates the content assist.
Entering CTRL+SPACE after entering 'enitities.' does only activate a ringing tone.
