Editing columns directly in the JTable is very awkward. You have to do a lot of
horizontal scrolling and exact clicking.
Instead, it would be nice to remove the in-line editing and do something like
the class wizard. In the class wizard (File->New->Classes->Class) you can build
a list of fields or methods by editing properties of that field and then adding
it to the list above.
The "New Table" dialog box could do much the same thing. The user could hit
a "new column" button next to a list of columns and then edit it's attributes
I would be happy to provide screen layout and NetBeans form for a redesign if
desired. - Jan B.
this RFE leads to re-design layout the dialogs and forms in whole dbexplorer
module to be in consistence each other.
We are going to have it in mind during re-implemention and re-design dbexplorer
and dbschema modules in Orion release.
Will not be fixed in the current Database Explorer module. Wizard will be redesign in the new module
which will merge and replace DBExplorer and DBSchema modules.
Reopening to change the status.
Will be investigated for new module based on MDR.
Resolved for 3.3.x or earlier, no new info since then -> closing.
A mistakenly closed RESOLVED LATER/REMIND issue. Reopening.
Fixed as issue 148825. Add Column dialog is now used to add/edit a new column to the list.
