Hi!

My code has some quirks, and it needs either an instance to my xtext editor or to the underlining file (as resource or string - path). Is there any way to get such information in a Validator Context? (AbstractDeclarativeValidator)

Thanks,

Hi,

you can ask any EObject for its Resource (along with its URI). Usually that is a good way to get at the file. Note that the validator is intended to run without the UI as well, so you there need not be an editor around.

Thanks a lot.

Calling:
Resource resource = getCurrentObject().eResource();

was the thing I was searching for.

Also, if other will read this, to convert that Resource to an Eclipse IFile/IResource thingy, take a look here: http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/EMF/FAQ#How_do_I_map_between_an_EMF_Resource_and_an_Eclipse_IFile.3F
