Description Sreenivasa Viswanadha 2004-07-01 23:07:09 UTC
I am trying to create a Java project from existing sources. I entered a source directory that did not exist. There was no error, but the 'Finish' button was simply disabled. It will be good to at least show an error in the 'status' area of the wizard and/or beep. It tooks me 1 minute to realize my error.

An error message "Source Packages Folder doesn't exist" [not yet passed through English editing for the release] is displayed in the error area of the wizard generally used for display of messages that prevent the wizard from proceeding. Note: I thought such messages were supposed to appear in red; for some reason this one appears in blue on JDK 1.4 + Metal at least, making it less apparent than it could be.

OK I see it now. But I think the placement of this error message is not the best. Generally people look for status area to be a single at the very bottom of the window whereas this message is showing up in the bottom panel for which the context is not clear, i.e., is it an input area, config area or an error message area? BTW, could you just throw in a beep when this message shows up?
