 Equipping SWT Applications with Content Assistants

For users of the Eclipse Java editor, content assistants are a well-known feature. You press Ctrl + spacebar, and a window with a set of completion proposals pops up. Selection of a specific proposal opens another window showing a preview of the insertion of the selected proposal. Committing a proposal with the Enter key or a double-click inserts the proposal into the current document. This article shows how you can easily add this feature to any SWT-based application, either a stand-alone application or a plug-in to the Eclipse workbench.
