I was looking for some suggestions. I am currently working on projects where I use properties type files to set attributes for particular variables used for U.I., database, etc. My question is, I have my own set of attribute definitions I look for in these property files. I would like to set some sort of Suggestion/Code Completion inside the properties file for my own attributes. Here is an example of attributes I declare with its Values:
Name.UI.LABEL = Name
Name.UI.WIDTH = 20
Name.FORMAT = STRING
Name.FORMAT.MAX_CHARS = 20
Name.FORMAT.REQUIRED = true
Name.PERSIST.PARAMETER_NAME = NAME
Ideally, I would like to type Name. Once I type period and press ctrl+space, I would like to see what definitions I can select, e.g. UI, FORMAT, etc. My research has pointed me towards building a plugin, possibly. But, before I dive into that realm, I would like to see if you guys have any other ideas to achieve this.
Thanks in advance!
