Description _ tboudreau 2001-04-27 19:39:17 UTC
I have a custom property editor component I would like to integrate with the 
IDE. This can be done with EnhancedPropertyEditor.  There is one problem:

My component needs to perform an action (pop up a palette) the first time it is 
clicked.  But my custom property editor is not actually instantiated until the 
property editor field receives focus.  So it always requires two clicks.

What I'd propose is an enhancement to the api for EnhancedPropertyEditor - 
perhaps a "persistent" property that, when true, means that the property editor 
will be instantiated for the life of the property sheet.

The solution to #24964 would also solve this request (as I hope). It
would allow you to specify a component for so called "read" state of
the property panel (in properyt sheet).

Making it duplicate of the mentioned issue. If you disagree that those
issues are in fact the same please reopen this one. Otherwise if you
are interested in progress please watch the other one.

Uh, maybe...I'm not sure how hyperlinks relates to this, since I 
don't imagine a hyperlink to be a property editor.  But I'll take
your word for it.

BTW, if you look at the patch I submitted for the Options UI,
it includes an extension to PropertyEditor - getPersistentEditor() 
which could solve the problem.

Tim, could you add a link at the patch for Options UI submitted by
you? Thanks
