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 
Comment 3 _ proxity 2003-08-09 13:29:16 UTC
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.
Comment 4 _ proxity 2006-02-09 10:50:00 UTC
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?
Comment 5 Jan Becicka 2011-01-18 15:43:12 UTC
this dialog was completely rewritten...
