Field Detail

TL_MEMBER_START

public static final int TL_MEMBER_START

   Foo| // completion occurs at |
 }

   public void bar() {
     Foo| // completion occurs at |
   }
 }

public static final int TOKEN_KIND_NAME
The completion token is a name.

Since:
3.2

Constant Field Values
Constructor Detail

CompletionContext

public CompletionContext()
Method Detail

isInJavadoc

public boolean isInJavadoc()
Tell user whether completion takes place in a javadoc comment or not.

Returns:
boolean true if completion takes place in a javadoc comment, false otherwise.
Since:
3.2

isInJavadocText

public boolean isInJavadocText()
Tell user whether completion takes place in text area of a javadoc comment or not.

Returns:
boolean true if completion takes place in a text area of a javadoc comment, false otherwise.
Since:
3.2

isInJavadocFormalReference

public boolean isInJavadocFormalReference()
Tell user whether completion takes place in a formal reference of a javadoc tag or not. Tags with formal reference are:
  • @see
  • @throws
  • @exception
  • {@link Object}
  • {@linkplain Object}
  • {@value} when compiler compliance is set at leats to 1.5

Returns:
boolean true if completion takes place in formal reference of a javadoc tag, false otherwise.
Since:
3.2

isExtended

public boolean isExtended()
Returns whether this completion context is an extended context. Some methods of this context can be used only if this context is an extended context but an extended context consumes more memory.

Returns:
true if this completion context is an extended context.
Since:
3.4

getExpectedTypesSignatures

public char[][] getExpectedTypesSignatures()
Return signatures of expected types of a potential completion proposal at the completion position. It's not mandatory to a completion proposal to respect this expectation.

Returns:
signatures expected types of a potential completion proposal at the completion position or null if there is no expected types.
See Also:
Signature

getExpectedTypesKeys

public char[][] getExpectedTypesKeys()
Return keys of expected types of a potential completion proposal at the completion position. It's not mandatory to a completion proposal to respect this expectation.

Returns:
keys of expected types of a potential completion proposal at the completion position or null if there is no expected types.
See Also:
ASTParser.createASTs(ICompilationUnit[], String[], org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom.ASTRequestor, org.eclipse.core.runtime.IProgressMonitor)

getToken

public char[] getToken()
Returns the completed token. This token is either the identifier or Java language keyword or the string literal under, immediately preceding, the original request offset. If the original request offset is not within or immediately after an identifier or keyword or a string literal then the returned value is null.

Returns:
completed token or null
Since:
3.2

getTokenKind

public int getTokenKind()
Returns the kind of completion token being proposed.

The set of different kinds of completion token is expected to change over time. It is strongly recommended that clients do not assume that the kind is one of the ones they know about, and code defensively for the possibility of unexpected future growth.

Returns:
the kind; one of the kind constants declared on this class whose name starts with TOKEN_KIND, or possibly a kind unknown to the caller
Since:
3.2

getTokenLocation

public int getTokenLocation()
Returns the location of completion token being proposed. The returned location is a bit mask which can contain some values of the constants declared on this class whose name starts with TL, or possibly values unknown to the caller.

The set of different location values is expected to change over time. It is strongly recommended that clients do not assume that the location contains only known value, and code defensively for the possibility of unexpected future growth.

Returns:
the location
Since:
3.4

getTokenStart

public int getTokenStart()
Returns the character index of the start of the subrange in the source file buffer containing the relevant token being completed. This token is either the identifier or Java language keyword under, or immediately preceding, the original request offset. If the original request offset is not within or immediately after an identifier or keyword, then the position returned is original request offset and the token range is empty.

Returns:
character index of token start position (inclusive)
Since:
3.2

getTokenEnd

public int getTokenEnd()
Returns the character index of the end (exclusive) of the subrange in the source file buffer containing the relevant token. When there is no relevant token, the range is empty (getTokenEnd() == getTokenStart() - 1).

Returns:
character index of token end position (exclusive)
Since:
3.2

getOffset

public int getOffset()
Returns the offset position in the source file buffer after which code assist is requested.

Returns:
offset position in the source file buffer
Since:
3.2

getEnclosingElement

public 
IJavaElement getEnclosingElement()
Returns the innermost enclosing Java element which contains the completion location or null if this element cannot be computed. The returned Java element and all Java elements in the same compilation unit which can be navigated to from the returned Java element are special Java elements:
  • they are based on the current content of the compilation unit's buffer, they are not the result of a reconcile operation
  • they are not updated if the buffer changes.
  • they do not contain local types which are not visible from the completion location.
  • they do not give information about categories. IMember.getCategories() will return an empty array
Reasons for returning null include:
  • the compilation unit no longer exists
  • the completion occurred in a binary type. However this restriction might be relaxed in the future.

Returns:
the innermost enclosing Java element which contains the completion location or null if this element cannot be computed.
Throws:
UnsupportedOperationException - if the context is not an extended context
Since:
3.4

getVisibleElements

public 
IJavaElement[] getVisibleElements(
String typeSignature)
Return the elements which are visible from the completion location and which can be assigned to the given type. An element is assignable if its type can be assigned to a variable of the given type, as specified in section 5.2 of The Java Language Specification, Third Edition (JLS3). A visible element is either: Returned elements defined in the completed compilation unit are special Java elements:
  • they are based on the current content of the compilation unit's buffer, they are not the result of a reconcile operation
  • they are not updated if the buffer changes.
  • they do not contain local types which are not visible from the completion location.
  • they do not give information about categories. IMember.getCategories() will return an empty array
Note the array can be empty if:
  • the compilation unit no longer exists
  • the completion occurred in a binary type. However this restriction might be relaxed in the future.

Parameters:
typeSignature - elements which can be assigned to this type are returned. If null there is no constraint on the type of the returned elements.
Returns:
elements which are visible from the completion location and which can be assigned to the given type.
Throws:
UnsupportedOperationException - if the context is not an extended context
Since:
3.4

isExtended()
