IntelliJ Platform Plugin SDK Help


This section covers working with text in the IntelliJ Platform editor. It is presented in two major sections:

  • Editor basics tutorial

    • Using the action system to access a caret placed in a document open in an editor.

    • Accessing position information about a caret in an editor: coordinate systems and offsets.

    • Handling actions activated by keystroke events in the editor.

  • Multiple carets

    • Working with multiple, independent, carets in one editor.

    • How multiple carets affect core functionality, editor actions, typing actions, and code insight actions.
