We have Advanced options in Tools | Options dialog since 5.0. At this time it
was treated as a workaround for 1st implementation of new, nice options.
We need to put replacements of Advanced Options by custom panels into 6.0
NetBeans is very special by its way of allowing to modify options in two
totally different UIs.
This will be probably umbrella issue because every module must migrate its own
node in old fashion options dialog into a panel in our first class options
dialog. Every module should consult its UI decisions via UI spec. to make
decisions like whether there will be added new category or just panel into
misc.category. Also maybe some properties might be obsolete and so on.
Created attachment 36459 [details]
list of instances registered in the old OD
I attached list of instances registered in the old OD to have idea which modules
will be involved.
From UI perspective there should be made also decision how to customize Menu -
whether should be part of OD or standalone customizer similar like Toolbar
Created attachment 36507 [details]
I processed previous attachment by script to extract code name base of individual modules that are involved.
Reassigning to xDesign.
Setting an optimistic TM.
Netbeans is also only IDE which doesn't support search in options and has least customisation options.
But I think, that use two view to options (tree view and smart) it's good idea, becaue some people prefer many options
and other like smart simple options.
Obsolete milestone, please reevaluate
Reassigning to new module owner jskrivanek.
All remaining Advanced Options in the standard build will be removed in 6.5 M2.
This issue will be closed in M2 as well.
"Advanced Options" button in the new Options dialog will be made sensitive to the fact that some old modules (e.g.
available on Update Center) may still have advanced options registered. In such case the button will be available.
Otherwise it will not be visible (or grayed out?).
If there's no options in the advanced dialog, then remove the button (don't disable it). If some module adds an option into the advanced dialog, then add the
Advanced Options button is now hidden when no advanced options are registered (issue 91106).
No items remaining in standard full IDE build. Closing as fixed.
