Description Roman Mostyka 2007-06-15 16:25:37 UTC
1. Create Java EE 5 Web Application with "Visual Web JSF" framework.
2. Add Text Field component.
3. Try to resize it.

Result: Component is not resizable.
The same with some other components: Text Area, Drop Down List, List Box. Probably it happens with all components that
are inherited from text field.
Comment 1 Lark Fitzgerald 2007-06-15 16:53:03 UTC
This is not a bug.  This is a functional change.  Please use the property sheet settings for column to change the width
of the component and style for size.

Here's the release note blurb:

    Description: Due to a change in Woodstock components, resize handles have been removed from the following Woodstock
components: TextField, TextArea,PasswordField, DropDown and ListBox. This issue impacts especially projects imported
from Java Studio Creator and NetBeans Visual Web Pack 5.5/5.5.1. Resized components may look different from how they
looked in previous releases.

    Workaround: For TextField and TextArea components, use the columns and rows attributes, respectively. DropDown and
ListBox components are automatically resized to the size of the longest item by the browser.
