Interface EnhancedPropertyEditor

All Superinterfaces:
PropertyEditor

Deprecated. Instead of this class, implement ExPropertyEditor and InplaceEditor.Factory. Also create an implementation of InplaceEditor for the custom inline editor. In the attachEnv() method of your ExPropertyEditor, call PropertyEnv.registerInplaceEditorFactory(this).

Before you do any of this read the prose documentation on the Explorer API and be sure you cannot do what you need with an existing property editor - it is very rare to actually need to provide a custom editor component.

public interface EnhancedPropertyEditor
extends PropertyEditor

Enhances standard property editor to support in-place custom editors and tagged values. Use of this class is strongly discouraged - the original NetBeans property sheet did not specify a strong contract for when the property should be updated from an editor such as the custom inplace editor this interface allows you to provide. The new (NetBeans 4.0 and later) property sheet does specify such a contract, and the InplaceEditor interface exists to allow it to be fulfilled.
