In platform 6.7 two buttons were added to the Options dialog - Import and Export. Whereas it's clearly useful for the
IDE itself, for other applications built on top of the NetBeans platform this may cause problems:
1/ The application itself doesn't support exporting/importing the settings but the buttons cannot be removed - usability
2/ The buttons introduce 2 new mnemonics keys which may be in conflict with existing options panel - accessibility
Since the buttons cannot be easily hidden and the mnemonics cannot be easily controlled I'm filing this as a P2 defect -
it may unintentionally break a platform-based application.
I'd suggest by default the buttons should be hidden and only shown if explicitely requested by the application - this
would ensure the options dialog behaves in a compatible way when upgrading the platform version.
Affects the VisualVM tool, suggesting to be fixed asap.
Fixed. Export/Import buttons are enabled only if something is registered in layer under OptionsExport folder.
please verify - other vice it will not be in NB 6.7.1. Thanks in advance.
The fix has been ported into the release67_fixes repository.
