Trying to Add Method or Text to Class Semantic data

SyntaxEditor for Windows Forms Forum

I am trying to see whether we can using the semanticparsedata add a child node as I need to know and or put my caret in a specific position in the document window to insert a new method or property that I am creating.

Ideally would be nice to have an AddChildNode() style function or is there a way I can in code get to a place in the document that I can add a method IE not inside another method?

Hi Mike,

I'll add this request to the TODO list. But you can probably do this pretty easily right now. If you navigate down the AST to the type you want to insert the method in, maybe just get its EndOffset from the AstNode. Then subtract one and you are inside the curly brace (assuming the parse data is in sync with the document). Then insert the new method code at that offset via Document.InsertText.
