I have an Xtext language that provides supports the assignment of expressions to properties. The full Xtext editor works fine. Now I want to provide a jface table that shows properties and the current value. The user should be able to edit the value directly in the table using a cell editor.
Can an EmbeddedEditor be used here? I couldn't find any example code that does this.
I also found the XtextStyledTextCellEditor in the yakindu repository, but it does not use an embedded editor, so I'm not sure if it could be used to edit a part of a DSL file.
I'd appreciate any hints at which approach is the right one and how to make it work.

Thanks!

To wrap this up: We tried both approaches and found that the embedded editor works but it has only very limited functionality, so we took the Xtext styled text cell editor and changed it to display only a small region of the document that is edited (like the embedded editor). This works quite well.

Hi Lutz,

I'm having kind of the same problem. Could you please tellme how did uou manage to only show a particular segment/region of the wholemodel in your styled text? Do I need to set a fakeresourceset?

Thank you,
Regards,
Parsa

I didn't implement this myself, so I can't tell you much about how it's implemented. The relevant sources are in https://github.com/osate/osate2-core/tree/develop/org.osate.xtext.aadl2.ui/src/org/osate/xtext/aadl2/ui/propertyview . I think you would need to find how our class CellEditorPartialValue is used to show only a certain segment of the full source.
