We would like to use the semantic parsing capabilities of Visual Assist at an API level. This would make it possible for us to provide most of Visual Assist's Intellisense capabilities in other code editors besides Visual Studio.

E.g. we would like to have a semantic parser API where we can call a method taking the C# text of the current document being edited, a list of referenced assemblies, and an offset into the current document, and if the token is a special keyword ("this" or "base"), namespace, class, variable or member of a variable, get back semantic information about the token at the offset point. Such information would include things like the System.Type and System.Reflection.MemberInfo where applicable.

Has this been considered before?

We have considered the option but have no plans to provide what you need via API.
