Parse a XSD to get allowed elements

I'm using the SyntaxEditor XML Add-On, i would like to know if there are accessible methods to parse a Schema (XSD) to get allowed elements at a given position in a XML document ?

(For example, a method to get the list of elements returned by the word completion tool of the XML Editor)

thank you for your reply.
Best regards

You can do code like this (which is what we do in our completion provider):

IXmlContext context = new XmlContextFactory().CreateContext(view.Selection.EndSnapshotOffset);

That gives you a context object that provides information about what is at the caret location in the view.  Based on that information, we have logic in our completion provider that builds up the list of items to show in the completion list.  But the context should contain the XmlSchemaElement's in the hierarchy and the current one, exposed via IXmlElementContext objects.
