Hello,


I am new to Xtext & DSL writing. Following Xtext tutorials, I created a DSL and want to add debugging support such as breakpoints, detailed messages...

To add messages dynamically, I want to be able to edit my Xtext DSL file programmatically : for instance, if I pass through a certain variable, I want it to change its writing style to italic.

I saw this thread https://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/m/552850/?srch=getActiveXtextEditor+returns+null#msg_552850, and discovered that the IDocumentEditor could help me. However, working in Xtext 2.24, it seems that I can't access it.

Does a 'replacement' for the IDocumentEditor exist or am I missing something ?


Thanks in advance !

hi

IXtextDocument is a IWriteAccess
this you can call modify on editor.getDocument()


Need professional support for Xtext, Xpand, EMF?
