Manipulating the editor

The editor implements IControl, so it has the usual assortment of methods and bindings for enable/disable, readonly etc.

In addition the following methods are implemented:

setTabSize(int)Sets the tab size (defaults to 4)
gotoLine(int [, col])Moves the caret to the specified 1-based line and column
select(line1, col1, line2, col2)Select the text from line1,col1 to line2,col2

Code completion

The editor supports code completion. To make this work you need to create a method which, depending on the text position and context, returns a list of AceEditor.Completion instances. The method will be called when the user presses CTRL+Spacebar in the editor, and the editor will allow the user to pick one of the values which will then be inserted.
