Code Completion

Code completion is handled by ReSharper, as long as the reference also implements the ICompleteableReference interface. This interface inherits from IReference and defines just one method:

public interface ICompleteableReference : IReference { ISymbolTable GetCompletionSymbolTable(); }

This method should return a symbol table of candidates. Each candidate will be added to the code completion list. The implementation for this is usually very straightforward:

public ISymbolTable GetCompletionSymbolTable() { return GetReferenceSymbolTable(false); }

We simply return the symbol table from IReference.GetReferenceSymbolTable by passing false for useReferenceName. This is already our list of candidates, so we don’t need to do any further processing.
