Hello everyone!
I just wanted to know if it is possible to limit the selection of enum literals?

Here an example:

enum VisibilityKind_Impl returns VisibilityKind:
	public='public' | private='private' | protected='protected' | package='package';

In some special cases, I just want to disable some selections for the user. So the user can just choose two out of four different literals. Is this possible in xtext?

Thx a lot,

If you don't use a manually maintained metamodel: write a check and
(maybe) adopt content assist (completeKeyword if I remember correct)
