Description lehel 2012-11-22 16:36:15 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 201211200002)
Operating System = Windows XP version 5.1 running on x86
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.7.0_10-ea
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 23.6-b04

The Palette Manager offers 3 possibilities, adding a new component to the palette. These are: “Add from JAR”, “Add from Library”, “Add from Project”.
Their name are different but, in this version of Netbeans, these buttons/functions, clicking on them, offers the same window, no matter on which I was clicking.

Well, is is definitively broken, you should file a issue about that. I have tested that and my result was:
1. Opened the UI
2. Selected Add from JAR and the right dialog was opened and closed (using ESC);
3. Selected Add from Library and the was opened and I closed it (ESC);
4. After step 3, no matter what option I chose, just the Libraries UI is opened, even if I close the 'Palette Manager' UI;

Import actions are define in form designer module, reassigning.
Comment 4 MackSix 2012-11-23 14:44:56 UTC
This is regression. It works in 7.2. It should be P1.
Comment 5 Tomas Pavek 2012-11-23 16:21:51 UTC
This was caused by fix of bug 220286. The WizardDescriptor instance when used for the second time to show a dialog is not properly updated after it was used for a wizard dialog that was canceled. See WizardDescriptor.updateStateOpen.

Comment 7 lehel 2012-11-26 11:01:17 UTC
Also using here the "Add from jar button", a window to select a jar file is opening, but you can not click forward, on next/finish button...So everything is disabled even if you select a jar file, to add to the palette manager, therefore is no way to add something to your palette manager.

Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201211290002* on (upload may still be in progress)
