Description _ proxity 2003-04-04 17:47:30 UTC
[BTW: I can only select 3.5 here, but I have 3.4.1] Please increase the height of the "Type" drop-down box by 1 in the "New Property Pattern" dialog that is opened when I click on "Add Property"" in the "Bean Patterns" tree view. The "Type" drop-down box shows all available types except String. You have to scroll down for this. Unfortunately this is the most often used type for properties, when you develop web applications. I use it a dozen times a day, so it get's annoying to scroll down, because the list is too short for all items. Please change this. To use it even quicker I suggest to remove the Read-Only/Read-Write button. IMHO it's enough to select what access methods should be generated.

I would also like to suggest that the 'generate field', 'generate return statement' and 'generate set statement' checkboxes be checked by default, as I do not believe I am alone in finding these to be the most common choices.

plank, you are right. Another idea would be to use radio buttons instead of the drop-down list, because it does not have that much entries.

In 5.0 String is now the default, but you still have to scroll the list when you want the top item. Is it so difficult to add 1 to the list size?
