Description rost 2007-04-20 21:00:24 UTC
If you change the properties of a component there are three sections 
accessible via togglebuttons: Properties, Events and Code.

Customizations made in the "Properties" section are highlighted by painting 
the property key in bold. This is a nice feature; it is instantly visible 
where you made some changes. The problem is that in the other sections 
("Events" and "Code") there same highlighting mechanism is missing.

Events could be made easily highlighted when an event is attached. But even now
you can easily spot the attached events - they have different value than <none>.

The code properties are a bit special, some of them don't have a default state
(like variable modifiers or variable name). These make no sense to be
highlighted. We could possibly highlight the properties containing some custom code.
