Integrate a LanguageService (MPF) and editor Extension (MEF) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I thought i have to migrate the language service to MEF as its explained here and here

    In case you have both, MEF and language service, in wich one do you develop the memeber completion, brace matching, quick info, etc.?

    Is there any example avaliable that shows the interaction between the two frameworks?

    Im a bit confused

  • Hi Fran,

    Thanks for your post.

    I suppose you have done something on the implementation of  LanguageService and editor Extension.

    As far as I know, in .Net 4.0 VS2010, we make more extension in editor, such as

    ·         Content types

    ·         Classification types and classification formats

    ·         Margins and scrollbars

    ·         Tags

    ·         Adornments

    ·         Mouse processors

    ·         Drop handlers

    ·         Options

    ·         IntelliSense

    Information on editor extension, check here.

    On the other hand, LanguageService would provide Syntax Coloring and symbol browsing.

    For a complete sample, you can download another Ironpythonintegration sample for VS2010 here

    Hope this can help.


    Best Regards,

    Ziwei Chen
