Description uktedc 2009-03-04 14:54:53 UTC
I have designed 95% my user interface using the netbeans form designer using standard components as place holders.
However to progress further I have to replace those standard components by application specific components derived from
them. I do not want these components on the palette and so the easiest solution is to say goodbye to the form designer
and code the interface manually from now on. However guarded blocks prevent me carrying out this plan. I am forced at
this point to use an outside editor to remove all the //Gen tags in the source file. Obviously I can no longer use the
form designer but that is the price I am prepared to accept. I would like to suggest that the developer should have this
choice within netbeans possibly as a  unlock guarded blocks option on the refactor menu.

The editor is just a placeholder for the guarded sections. If it would just allow a user modification of the guarded sections any actions in form editor (or other 
"managers" of the guarded sections) would lead to refreshing of the GS and a dataloss. Reassigning to form editor if there wouldn't be any better alternative 
for your request.
