Pressing '.' in a string incorrectly displays intelliprompt

Repro Steps:

1. Open the Actipro Sample Browser
2. Open the C# Editor Sample
3. Add the following text below the Console.WriteLine command:

"bob"
4. Between the last 'b' in Bob and the close quote, type '.' (no quotes)
5. Notice that you get intelliprompt within the quoted string, which is incorrect behavior.

Question:
I've remedied this by using the following code:

if (e.TypedText == ".")
{
    var reader = editor.ActiveView.GetReader();
    var token = reader.Token;
    if (token != null && token.Id != CSharpTokenId.LiteralString && token.Id != CSharpTokenId.LiteralVerbatimString)
    {
        // request session
    }
}
Is this approach the best way to detect if I'm typing within a string?

Thanks,

-Craig

Hi Craig,

Thanks for reporting this, we've fixed it for the next version.

Yes what you have is fine as a workaround although you may wish to allow it if you are at the token start offset since that is right before the string.

So, to clarify, you're suggesting I do the following?


if (e.TypedText == ".")
{
    var reader = editor.ActiveView.GetReader();
    var token = reader.Token;  

    if (token != null)
    {
        if (token.StartOffset == reader.Offset || (token.Id != CSharpTokenId.LiteralString && token.Id != CSharpTokenId.LiteralVerbatimString))
        {
            // request session
        }
    }
}

Yes, and we also added checks for character literals and comments as well.
