Description Martin Balin 2006-12-04 15:28:17 UTC
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.
Comment 1 rmatous 2006-12-04 15:55:06 UTC
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.

Comment 3 rmatous 2006-12-04 18:10:00 UTC
I attached list of instances registered in the old OD to have idea which modules
will be involved.
Comment 4 rmatous 2006-12-05 10:59:50 UTC
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

Reassigning to xDesign.

Setting an optimistic TM.
Comment 8 tprochazka 2007-06-21 08:25:39 UTC
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.
Comment 9 Jiri Prox 2007-09-17 20:11:37 UTC
Obsolete milestone, please reevaluate
Comment 10 Antonin Nebuzelsky 2008-04-15 17:18:53 UTC
Reassigning to new module owner jskrivanek.
Comment 11 Antonin Nebuzelsky 2008-06-26 12:26:49 UTC
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?).
Comment 12 jrojcek 2008-06-26 12:41:40 UTC
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 
button back.
Comment 13 Jiri Skrivanek 2008-07-04 09:47:06 UTC
Advanced Options button is now hidden when no advanced options are registered (issue 91106).
Comment 14 Antonin Nebuzelsky 2008-07-29 15:11:40 UTC
No items remaining in standard full IDE build. Closing as fixed.
Comment 15 Petr Jiricka 2008-07-29 16:42:37 UTC
Let's celebrate!
