Hi XText community. I just started using XText, and I tried understanding binding and writing scoping methods using the documentation but couldn't get it. If someone can explain where to write scoping methods and how in a DSL and what binding is would be extremely helpful.

if you create a dsl with the wizard you get

<MyDsl>ScopeProvider.xtend pregenerated.
simply open it and override getScope

class MyDslScopeProvider extends AbstractMyDslScopeProvider {
	override getScope(EObject context, EReference reference) {
		// TODO implement
		super.getScope(context, reference)


- use parameter reference to find out which reference you scope.
- use parameter context to find out where you are and to navigate through the model

Need professional support for Xtext, Xpand, EMF?
