Description Stanislav Aubrecht 2007-04-26 13:27:00 UTC
very common ui concept is a button with a small 'arrow' that opens a popup menu
when clicked (e.g. 'back' button in internet browsers). 
i propose adding a factory class that can create such buttons.

if there are no objections, i'll integrate this tomorrow
Comment 5 Jesse Glick 2007-05-03 20:38:10 UTC
Seems to suffice for adding a configuration selector to the Run and Debug
toolbar buttons, the use case I am interested in.

[JG01] Clicking on the arrow when the menu is already open should close it.

[JG02] 'if( null != menu && menu instanceof JPopupMenu )' is redundant
(instanceof is always false for null).
