Subject [jira] [Issue Comment Deleted] (NETBEANS-2534) Add support for parsing / code completion of draft CSS properties
Date Sat, 01 Aug 2020 21:20:00 GMT


Matthias Bläsing updated NETBEANS-2534:
    Comment: was deleted

(was: IMHO this issue is to broad/unspecific to be solveable. There will always be draft properties
and thus when is this done? Only concrete requests are realistic.)

>                 Key: NETBEANS-2534
>                 URL:
>             Project: NetBeans
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>            Reporter: Pete Whelpton
>            Priority: Major
> Browser vendors are now adding support for new CSS feature often whilst the CSS specification
is still in its draft / experimental phase.  Netbeans needs to be able to support draft CSS
properties / values, whilst making it obvious that those properties are in a *draft* state.
> What I would propose:
> 1) The CSS module properties files netbeans/ide/css.editor/src/org/netbeans/modules/css/editor/module/main/properties/
need some kind of flag, e.g. a tilde symbol ~ before each draft property to flag it
> 2) GrammarParser in the CSS Lib module needs to be aware of this symbol, and the parseElement
method would then create a new DraftModuleProperty (or similarly named) class, or the existing
Property class would have a isDraft boolean property added to it
> 3) Code Completion for CSS would be updated so that draft module properties / values
used the spanner icon [] 
> As always, more than willing to help in any way possible
