    Using standalone code completion for my custom application


    As described in this post, I'm trying to use some functionalities for my custom application.

    Here are some fragments of code that I have written in order to show completion list:

    • Initialization:

               var core = new CoreStartup("MyApp");
               core.ConfigureExternalAddIns(@"C:\Program Files (x86)\SharpDevelop\4.2\AddIns\ICSharpCode.SharpDevelop.addin"); // default IDE addins


    •  TextEditor creation:


    var service = new AvalonEditorControlService();

               object control = null;
               service.CreateEditor(out control);
               textEditor = (SharpDevelopTextEditor)control;
               textEditor.SyntaxHighlighting = HighlightingManager.Instance.GetDefinitionByExtension(".cs");
               CodeCompletionEditorAdapter completionAdapter = new MyCustomCodeCompletionEditorAdapter(textEditor); // just overrides FileName returning "temp.cs"
               textEditor.TextArea.TextView.Services.AddService(typeof(ITextEditor), completionAdapter);

    • Completion Trigger (in some button or anything else) 


                ITextEditor editor = (ITextEditor)textEditor.TextArea.GetService(typeof(ITextEditor));
                new DotCodeCompletionItemProvider().ShowCompletion(editor);


    • I have also modified this method to public and called it on the initialization
      public static void InitializeParserService


    When I debug ParserService.cs(line 212 - "foreach (ParserDescriptor descriptor in parserDescriptors) {", parserDescriptors is empty, and it causes "CodeCompletionItemProvider.GetExpressionFromOffset" to return ExpressionResult.Empty, empty intellisense items and no intellisense =/

    In my project there is no concept of project or solutions, but I do have my imported dlls and scoped variables.

    Are there any guidelines that would help me in this task?

    Thanks for the help and for the great work on this library!
