Hi guys!

Almost as in the 15 Minutes Tutorial I created a grammar for my DSL. As you can see, I used the EMF for modeling the meta-model.
If I declare an import like the code in the following lines, the scope works, but I can't use a wildcard-import (anyPkg.*):
Import:
	'Import' importedNamespace = [TypeLibrary|QualifiedName] ';';

by the way I understand why the wildcard import won't work Laughing

In opposit to the last declaration, the scope does not work in the following declaration, but the wildcard-import does:
Import:
	'Import' importedNamespace = QualifiedNameWithWildcard ';';


Well, this is my code example where the problem exists:
generate domainModel "DomainModel"

//...

domainModel:
	(elements += Import)*
	elements += TypeLibrary
;

Import:
	'Import' importedNamespace = QualifiedNameWithWildcard ';';

TypeLibrary returns TypeLibrary:
	'TypeLibrary' name = QualifiedName
	'{'
		(elements += (Type1|Type2|Type3))*
	'};'
;

// (Type rules)


And now my target is to make it possible to import types as well as packages with the functionality of scoping. I'm very sorry if I misunderstood the tutorial but I just started working with this awesome plugin.
So I'd be very happy when you could help me or give me a hint how i can solve the problem or find a solution fitting to it.

Thank you for dealing with my problem!

can you share your complete grammar and test model

Sorry for the delay.

I attached my project folders. Well, the model of my main project has to be protected, because it concerns safety-critical infrastructure.
So I created another example project where the problem is the same. Don't mind about the strange package/class identifiers, I just did this quickly.

The problem once again in a short version:
importedNamespace = [TypeLibrary|QualifiedName]:
The editor provides a Scope with all packages.

importedNamespace = QualifiedName(withWildcard):
I can import packages but there is no scope provided.

If the combination is not possible, I would be very happy if somebody could give me a reference showing how to work arround this problem.

Thank you!

sry importedNamespace = QualifiedNameWithWildcard works for me.
what do you mean by code provided?
scope for the import?

if you want importedNamespace = [TypeLibrary|QualifiedName]:

you have to adapt

org.eclipse.xtext.scoping.impl.ImportedNamespaceAwareLocalScopeProvider.internalGetImportedNamespaceResolvers(EObject, boolean)

and use nodemodelutils to retrieve the text.
and create a wildcard import for that text

Using importedNamespace = [TypeLibrary|QualifiedName] was just a work around for me.
When I use importedNamespace = QualifiedNameWithWildcard, i can import packages as well classes BUT if I write import I don't get all possibile imports listed.
The project I am working on has a high variety of packages and classes so such a list is very important.

So what I want is an appearance in editor like this when I start typing a library name:
Import M...
|MainLib.SubLib1...................|
|MainLib.SubLib2...................|
|MainLib.SubLib2.SubClass..|

And I currently just get this appearance (without classes) by using importedNamespace = [TypeLibrary|QualifiedName].
Finally, I also want to import classes, not only packages.

i cannot follow you on this. you have to implement that yourself. i gave you some hints how to deal with
importedNamespace = [TypeLibrary|QualifiedName]
