Description Jan Benway 2001-03-12 21:06:35 UTC
Look under Tools->Options->Modules->Java->Bean Patterns

You can read the long description for this module by clicking the ... button for
long description. A string editor comes up with the entire long description on
one line, with a horizontal scroll bar.

The text in this dialog box should wrap.

Hmm, not by default I think. For editable properties, internal newlines may be
significant and you would not want to make it more confusing using linewrapping.
Perhaps there should be a property editor hint to use autowrap (word-style I
guess) when displaying, off by default, and this type of node could set the hint
on properties for which it might be needed.

Changed to enhancement.

Comment 5 dpavlica 2002-06-28 13:25:32 UTC
I agree with Jesse that this line wrapping could be 
useable on some places but not by default. Solve it by 
property hint is solution. Could somebody from openide 
look on this ?
Comment 6 Marek Grummich 2002-07-22 11:31:06 UTC
Set target milestone to TBD

Comment 8 David Simonek 2002-07-26 13:39:49 UTC
Yes, I agree with Jesse's suggestion, implementation will be done
something like that.
Passing to UI group to identify places where currently word wrap is
needed, as now I know only about module description, but I expect
there are more places where word wrap could be enabled.
