Hi There,

I am using an embedded XtextEditor starting it with an in memory representation of the instantiated dsl model. It is saved as string to an object that carries some extra information in its members. Within the content assist of the editor i want to be able to access these members but the conext just gives me access to either the dsl model or the xtextdocument. I cant find a convienent way to get access to my object with the extra data i need. I was wondering if i can hand over my object to the xtextdocument when i am creating my editor. Does anyone have a good idea of how to maintain the context to my user object? Confused

Cheers

Phil

Hi,

just an untested fast and stupid guess:
what about subclassing the XtextResource, store the information there (IEditedResourceProvider)
and then downcast the Context Objects Resource in the ProposalProvider and take the information out again?

I use a ResourceAdapter for similar things, have one that sets various
properties.

https://github.com/cloudsmith/geppetto/blob/master/org.cloudsmith.geppetto.pp.dsl/src/org/cloudsmith/geppetto/pp/dsl/adapters/ResourcePropertiesAdapter.java


and its Factory in the same package

Hope that helps. Then just adapt the resource when needed. Works well in
my use cases.
