I am trying to extend the C/C++ language in Eclipse CDT in order to have auto-complete (Content Assist) for some custom commands ( mostly pragmas ).
Let's say I have the command: #pragma IAM THE_CUSTOM_COMMAND var1 var2
I' d like to make a plugin in order to have the ability the moment I type in #pragma and then SPACE to show the possible commands I have like when I am using regular functions. And if I
press enter on one of the suggestions the whole command should be pasted with the default values in the variables.
I tried reading in the Eclipse FAQ and found many tutorials online but I only found how to make a completely new editor supporting my commands.
I just need to add 20-30 pragmas like this in the CDT editor currently being used in Eclipse.
I read that there is an Extension Point for CDT Language and if I could make an extension for that it would be sufficient but I haven't found a tutorial explaining this.
Is there any way to add these commands to the CDT Editor with the Auto-complete functionality I want without making my own editor ? The language we use is C and we have these pragmas and this feature would be great since we use them a lot.
Thank you all.
