Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 200706230000)
Java: 1.6.0_01; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 1.6.0_01-b06
System:Windows XP version 5.1 running on x86; MS932; ja_JP (nb), fontsize 16
1. Open New Project wizard
2. Select Enterprise category
3. Choose project type: Enterprise Application
4. Press Next button
The wizard will change its size. It is out of sreen boundaries.
On Solaris10 Sparc it doesn't happen. See attached image (labels are ok).
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.

In the attached screenshot I see that the width of the wizard is because of 'Project Folder' property - it seems that
this property (path) is quite long - and this is probably the reason why you cannot reproduce it on Solaris. So - I
can't see any valid solution here because I think that this is a corner case (the only solution I can think of now is
to shorten this property but - what about other properties? and wouldn't it be strange for someone who has "high"
resolution - wouldn't he/she ask why it is shortened?). So I suggest WONTFIX.
Adding Petr Blaha on CC because I've discussed this with him.
if its just project folder property that is the largest part, and can cause the problem, then it can be ok since that is
a textfield and can
be scrolled thru - so no resize problems with that.
but in image it seemed that perhaps because proj text field or other part was trying to resize, that
button at bottom was not all shown. that was why issue was filed.
so perhaps if that text field is not asked to resize (so much) then the buttons at bottom will show all ?
