a new treetable-like component has been added to netbeans code base. it has some advantages over the existing and buggy
treetableview: multicolumn sorting, drag and drop support, in-place editing of tree cells etc. so please consider
replacing TreeTableView with the new OutlineView in your code. the TreeTableView will be deprecated at the end netbeans
6.5 Milestone 2 and there is still some room for extensions and enhancements to OutlineView API depending on your
We're going to evaluate the OutlineView soon...
It's almost ready.
Currently I have problems with missing content in the tables after TopComponents with views are closed and opened again.
Unfortunately we need to leave this for the next release.
There are more issues associated with the transition. Columns are treated differently than in TTV, there is no column
model for Nodes column. This implies different internal management of settings like visible columns, sorted columns,
order of visible columns.
Due to that, we would have to make big changes in org.netbeans.modules.viewmodel.TreeTable and we consider them to be
risky at this point.
Furter, there are some bugs like on Gnome L&F no expansion sign are visible and messages are not localizable - will
submit separate issues for that.
In changeset: 106686:0742eb00bc60 I've added an experimental implementation of Outline view as a replacement of TTV.
It's activated when system property "debugger.outline" is set to "true". It can be used for an easier reproduction of
issues we depend on.
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *200810280201* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
Log: #136658 - Experimental implementation of Outline view as a replacement of TTV added conditionally, it's activated when system property debugger.outline is set to true.
As most of the issues with Outline were solved, we're switching from TreeTableView to OutlineView for all debugger views
