Description kaa 2008-04-22 16:39:26 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 200804210001)
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. Open New Java Class wizard
2. Leave Package name empty

There is a warning message. The wizard doesn't resize to show it entirely.
The same in wizards for: entity class wizard, new javabean component, beaninfo, customizer, property editor.

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.

changing to java component - is that correct one
for this ? if not, please change or suggest what
the correct one is.

A general wizard issue?
Comment 4 Antonin Nebuzelsky 2008-05-07 12:24:22 UTC
Jirko, is the warning text component at the bottom of panels provided by us? Maybe we could solve this issue by making
the text component multiline.

If not, separate issues should be filed against the individual wizards.

It's the known problem with which I can live since NB3.5.1 where this capability was introduced. Tracked also as issue
48815. Who using this capability to show a error message to end-users, should know that she has only limited space for
that message and design it to fit into there. Btw. end-user can invoke a tooltip over the error message if an end-users
doesn't see whole message.

I'm running in Japanese locale, using a pseudo localized Netbeans with font size 16 option.

The same for New WSDL Doc wizard (Document literal).
Appropriate tooltip exists.
