Description Ken Frank 2008-07-29 16:04:54 UTC
using 14 pt font, using pseudo localized nb where each string is longer
than en one to account that in some languages, strings can be longer.

print options allows choice of font setting and choose font window
appears - the three labels at top -  font , font style and size
dont show completely ie the multibyte suffix at end does not show completely
unless its resized.

see gif.

user should not need to resize - thats based on nb ui guideline/rule.

also, it seems that solution often is to use layout managers in certain
ways so that window dynamically resizes as needed; hardcoding of window
size or its parts is not needed in that way -- this is according to ui
kind of guidelines.

Font and color editors come from jdk: java.beans.PropertyEditor, java.beans.PropertyEditorManager. The property editor
manager creates it. I can't change the source code in jdk.
Comment 2 Ken Frank 2008-07-29 16:23:14 UTC
I see the messages are mostly from our own nb bundle files - thus I thought
this chooser was a netbeans one -

but if this font chooser window/api allows us to insert our own messages, doesn't it mean
that other customization can be done to this dialog like about layout and sizing ?
