Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 200803231202)
Java: 1.6.0_05; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 10.0-b19
System: Windows XP version 5.1 running on x86; MS932; ja_JP (nb)
font size 16
1. Create Java Application
2. Open project properties dialog
The dialog does not resize to show text from several categories listed at right side.
The same for:
WebApp, EJB Module (See Build->Documenting - Additional Javadoc Options)
BPEL Module (See XML Catalog - Cache Location ).
The prblem appears not only on Windows. I checked with RH4 - the same behavior.
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'm running in pseudo localized locale in which each message/label is sometimes longer than in
English. To account for that in some locales, translations from English (and some other euro languages) could be shown
with longer strings.
Also I'm running at font size 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 font size.
Often, these issues happen because the length of some label or message or size of entire window is hardcoded vs using
layout managers or other techniques or api to have the windows or the objects in them, dynamically resize. Sometimes,
embedding components in a scroll pane will solve the problem.

affected categories circled in blue for RH4: Java App

web app properties dialog on WinXP
for the first gif, under the categories section, if by using the scrollbar
at bottom of that section, all the message can then be seen, then those parts
are not an issue, since that is one of the exceptions about resizing, that
its expected user would need to use the scrollbar (but not need to resize the window
otherwise to see all its contents)
all text circled in blue is not a subject for issue.
I marked so only affected categories. If you select any of them the issue will be on right side of the wizard.
The image was for JavaApp
Issue with the JWS hint was already fixed, see duplicate issue. Other hint on javadoc page is in fact fully visible
there is nothing hidden, compare when running IDE with regular fonts.
It's difficult to accept similar issues as P2 where some *hint* is partially hidden. The hint is there just to specify
what should be entered into the field, it's usually some example.
