Completion Contributor for Scala

Hi friends,

I want to implement a plugin to suggest next child or attribute for XML tags  for scala language. as an example if developer type <name> i have to suggest child tag <firstName> to editor. I can get next sibling and Childs using an xsd. but don't know how to know the position of curser (inside a xml tag or value) and to give sugestions based on the token. h have tried many ways with completion contributor and reference contributor. but still unable to find a success way. please help me with this if you can?

why not start with a tutorial:

these parameters are important:

CompletionParameters parameters,  - info about current element
CompletionResultSet resultSet    - completion suggestions (you need to populate this with the data)

Getting data from project files is a large topic.

I do not work with Scala so no ready answers from me. You'd need to look at Scala plugin code and also find out how to call Scala plugin methods from your plugin.
