Language server

Language server

The LSP client was written to enable communication with language servers. A language server add several new features to the editor like code completion, hover information, document formatting, parameter hints, hierarchical structure display (Document symbols), search features...

You can find more information on how to install language servers and how to add them to your project or site in the forum Language servers (LSP)

The Delphi LSP Client code is available on GitHub LSP Client.

Code completion

The language server provide much better completion support than the editor can provide by using syntax files.

Display errors, warnings, information and tips while you type.

Document symbols

Open the document symbols panel to display a hierarchical tree view of all classes, methods, properties etc. in a file or open document.

Symbol search

Similar to document symbols, but the search is project wide and may include library files as well.
