Class ContentAssistCommandAdapter


  • public class ContentAssistCommandAdapter
    extends ContentProposalAdapter
    ContentAssistCommandAdapter extends ContentProposalAdapter to invoke content proposals using a specified Command. The ability to specify a KeyStroke that explicitly invokes content proposals is hidden by this class, and instead the String id of a command is used. If no command id is specified by the client, then the default workbench content assist command is used.

    As of 3.3, ContentAssistCommandAdapter can be optionally configured to install the content assist decoration on its control.

    This class is not intended to be subclassed.

    3.2
