Is it possible to reuse the textfields or ContentProposalAdapters / -Providers that are used in the "new Class wizard"? I'd like to add ContentProposal to a specific textfield in order to "propose" classes,packages,interfaces....

Thanks in advance!

I think you'll have to choose from:
- try to reuse via sub-classing an existing class like NewTypeWizardPage
- program against internal classes - do at your own risk since these are not guaranteed to be stable across versions
- copy the existing implementation into your code, will probably cause a big ripple effect
- request a new API, make a clear point why this would benefit many clients, but don't expect that the request will be promptly fulfilled.
I may be missing other options.

Whether any of these are acceptable for you depends on several parameters of your project.

Regarding a "Browse..." button next to the text field chances for reuse based on official API are better.
