Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 200803301102)
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
font size 16
1. Create NetBeans Module using wizard defaults
2. Open project properties dialog
3. Select API Versioning
The dialog does not resize to show all of its text.
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.

Resize using horiz scrollbar doesn't help
Can't reproduce what you describe in the last comment. With e.g. --fontsize 18 (JDK 6, Ubuntu 7.10, Ocean) this panel is
indeed cramped when initially displayed, but looks fine if you make the dialog a bit bigger. AFAIK the project has no
control over how big the dialog box is initially opened, there is just a standard fixed size. Anyway this is no
different from any other project type, such as Java SE projects (which are used far more than NBM projects); if your
font size is too big, the dialog will probably be cramped until you make the dialog bigger.
