Auto complete sample

Jul 29, 2011 at 6:44 AM

I'm using scintillanet to develop an IDE for LUA (edit and debug).

With my application, it's possible to get .NET object into LUA script (via luainterface library).

But now, I'd like to enable autocomplete feature during edition : context box witch displays members (functions, properties) of an .net object (like visual studio IDE).

does it exist a simple way to do that or must I write a strong code by myself ?

Thanks in advance for your help

Scintilla (and ScintillaNET) provide syntax highlighting, not parsing. To populate your autocomplete box with functions, properties, etc, you'll need to write a custom parser or integrate an existing one.
