Description zn_cn_2 2010-01-11 07:51:06 UTC
in Netbeans 6.8,  the horizontalScrollBarPolicy and verticalScrollBarPolicy property of JScrollPanel changed into int value in properties panel.

Before 6.8,  that value is just a list, and user can't select a kind of value, such as NEVER/AS_NEEDED/ALWAYS, that is readable and recognizable.

Now it turns into a int value, say 20 or 30.

That's so discommodious.

This is also happened on  verticalTextPosition / horizontalTextPosition property of JButton.

This issue is an unfortunate consequence of fix of issue 157012.

If the property of the component was modified in the previous build then the original (enum) editor remains, but it is not present for unmodified properties (and all new components).

It happens on Mac OS with JDK 6 only.
Comment 3 Jan Stola 2010-01-18 10:46:53 UTC
Fixed. It is annoying for Mac users, I will try to get this into the next patch of NB6.8.
