Description rpattersoncc 2010-06-14 18:09:09 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE 6.9 RC2 (Build 201005312001)
Operating System = Windows Vista version 6.0 running on x86
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.6.0_20
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 16.3-b01

When a file is read-only and is opened, the background is gray.  If the file is changed to writable, the background is still gray.  The file must be reopened to change back to white.

Please evaluate.
Comment 2 Jaroslav Tulach 2010-06-15 20:41:29 UTC
I guess you mean background in editor.

Is there any possibility to fix this in 7.0?
Comment 5 Miloslav Metelka 2011-02-28 15:14:31 UTC
AFAIK there's no listener for changes in modifiability of the document so we will have to do some kind of periodic checks for modifiability (likely just for the file being edited) preferably in post-7.0.
Comment 6 Vladimir Kvashin 2011-03-01 15:09:10 UTC
I thought that the event is fired in 
FileObj.refreshImpl (
fireFileAttributeChangedEvent("", null, null);

Comment 8 Vladimir Voskresensky 2011-03-31 05:54:23 UTC
Mila, it is a regression comparing to 6.9.1 and in context for our remote mode (when all files are read only until connection is established) it is rather problematic for user.
Let me rise priority because of regression.
Comment 9 Miloslav Metelka 2011-03-31 16:20:40 UTC
In case it's really important for you to have it in 7.0 then please test the fix first and then raise it to P1 so that I can consider porting it to 7.0 RC2. The fix is IMHO not risky and if it's not too late then we should possibly be able to port it.
Comment 10 Vladimir Voskresensky 2011-03-31 16:38:03 UTC
