1. Create Web Application
2. Open project properties
3. Select Libraries category from the dialog
At the top part of the dialog there is a dropdown.
It does not resize to show Java Platform version.
Assumption is that user does not need to manually resize most windows or dialogs
to see all of the ui objects and information in them. I'am running in pseudo
localized locale in which each message/label is a bit longer than english to
account for that in some locales, translations result in longer strings than in
english. Also am running at fontsize 16, which is viewed as a valid font size
that might be used. Resizing issues are not just related to i18n; they might
show to user in english locale if they run at larger fontsize.

The combo box uses as much space as it can. The only solution probably is to try to compute the window width from the
text length and fontsize and set the window size before showing it.

So - this is problem because as you can see on the picture you have attached - what should be the *correct* behaviour?
The 'Java Platform' label as well as the 'Manage Platforms' button are much wider than usual - so the only possibility
is to change the size of the combobox... And I don't know how to solve this, really. Radko has proposed to change the
window size - I don't agree because the property window already has any width and it would be really strange to change
its size on-the-fly. So I suggest WONTFIX.
Adding Petr Blaha on CC because I've discussed this with him.
correct behavior would be for the dropdown box, and each viewed item of it when the dropdown is pushed
to show its choices - to show all of the label of each item.
I used to think this wasnt covered by requireements that some widget should show all its contents, but asked xdesign and
and they mentioned it was.
what I have heard in other discussions about resize is that by certain use of layout manager, it can happen
without needing to explicitly change window size. whether it can happen for combobox I don't know.
I know that other dev have used this approach in general - I wish I had code sample and details about the approach
so could share it.
