Package org.eclipse.jface.contentassist

Provides a content assist add-on for implementors of IContentAssistSubjectControl. Content assist supports the user in writing  by proposing context sensitive completions at a given position. A completion can also be a incomplete in itself and content assist provides means to deal with nested completions.

Package Specification

ISubjectControlContentAssistant defines the concept of the content assist add-on. It collaborates with content type specific completion processors (ISubjectControlContentAssistProcessor) in order to generate completion proposals (ICompletionProposal) valid at the current document position. The package provides a default implementation SubjectControlContentAssistant which completely defines and implements the UI and the control flow for content assist.

Deprecated, as of 3.2, replaced by Platform UI's field assist support
