I would like to

    define a grammar to create some basic rules
    use the web editor
    hook-up to external resources to facilitate text population


Example
Employee with userid (some user id looked up) must belong to department (departments values looked-up)

How to I extend the web editor to provide content assist to text fields?

What do you mean by text fields. The xtext web integration gives you an editor

Need professional support for Xtext, Xpand, EMF?

Yes, I have been using the editor, specifically the web editor. It is great so far, but my use case is as follows
For example
Greeting:
'Hello' name=ID '!';


when the interpreter reaches the name; I would like to provide the user a list of options with content assist, by doing a dynamic look up
I am currently looking at the class AbstractMyDslProposalProvider is that the correct one to extend so I can extend the content assist for the web editor?

ok, I think I figured that I need to follow
https://www.eclipse.org/Xtext/documentation/330_web_support.html#content-assist

My previous post modifies the content assist within Eclipse Editor, not Web Editor
