Qualified Name to a custom scope [message #764108] Sun, 11 December 2011 11:24 Go to next message

Hi,

I am stuck with the qualified name provider. Can someone help me with the right approach for the following?

I try to address an attribute with a path notation as shown in the following example. When using the default behaviour, the FQN only allows me to reference the attributes statical like A.a or B.r; but what I want is to use the scope of the attribute path.

entity A {
	attr a
}

entity B {
	attr a
	attr r : A
}

entity C {
	attr r : B
	
	set r = 3	// works
	set r.a = 4	// ?
	set r.r.a = 5	// ?
}


Here is the grammar for this example.

Model:
	(entities += Entity)*;
	
Entity:
	'entity' name = ID '{'
		(attributes += Attribute)*
		(settings += Setting)*
	'}';

Attribute:
	'attr' name = ID (':' type = [Entity])?;

Setting:
	'set' attributePath = [Attribute|FQN] '=' value = INT;
//	'set' path += [Attribute] ('.' path += [Attribute])* '=' value = INT; // Alternative approach

FQN:
	ID ('.' ID)*;



When the attribute path has a fixed length, the path-sensitive scoping works great with a custom scope provider.
To allow a path of arbitrary length, I also tried to use attributePath+=[Attribute]*, but when the ScopeProvider is asked for the next scope, I don't know which path element is currently visited. The FQN approach only lets me choose the static qualified names...

Can someone help me here, please?

Best Regards,
Moritz

Hi,

ok, this looks like Meinte wrote this article just to anticipate an explanation for what seems to be exactly my question + sample. Somehow it didn't came to my mind that "xtext path expression" are already the correct search terms. @Meinte, I googled for "xtext qualified name scope" instead.

Thank you very much, Christian

Best regards
Moritz


P.S. For future readers: There is a link to an updated Post at the end of the article
