Using 4.0beta 2
Launch Tools - Palette Manager
I'm surprised that this dialog is not as context
sensitive as other dialogs, such as the Library
Manager or Java Platform Manager. I'd expect that
selecting a palette, e.g. Swing, and then clicking
on Add Library.. would at least keep the context
that I want to add to the Swing palette, instead
of having to ask me again at the end of the
wizard. "choose the palette category where to add
Also, it will be good to offer the palette manager
dialog from a context menu of the Palette window
I agree with this. It should be doable relatively simply.
The tree with the palette categorie is created by core/palette module,
but the Add Library ... action is provided by form module. I doubt
there is an API that allows the form module (or other clients of
core/palette) to determine selected category in the tree.
Reassigning to core/palette for evaluation.
the latest netbeans builds (4.2/5.0) have 'palette customizer' in palette's
preselecting a category in the customizer should be simple enough indeed.
(increasing priority to P3 so that it doesn't get lost at the bottom of my list:)
Ad 2. it's implemented ...
