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.
Comment 2 Sreenivasa Viswanadha 2004-07-12 15:08:02 UTC
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?
