Resolve System.Reflection.MemberInfo from caret position

SyntaxEditor .NET Languages Add-on for Windows Forms Forum

Posted 13 years ago by Nicklas Chapman

I am using SyntaxEditor with the .NET add-on to edit C# code.

I would like to use Actipro's parsing capabilities to resolve a System.Reflection.MemberInfo from the current caret position in the editor. I have managed to resolve a MemberAccess expression easily enough, but to make the last step to an actual MemberInfo I have had to write a whole lot of code covering cases such as static members on other classes, members inherited from a base class or members referenced on an object returned by native properties.

I have the feeling that I am missing something and that I should be able to make a better job of using the parsing engine included.

What is the best way to resolve a MemberInfo object from the current caret position?

Thanks and best regards.

You can get context information by calling a static method like GetContextBeforeOffset on the CSharpContext class. There you pass it a document and an offset and it determines what it is for you if it can. Hope that helps!
