        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.

        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

        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

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

        Returns:
        character index of token end position (exclusive)

        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
