Description chris_v 2007-12-15 08:45:19 UTC
When using the hierarchy popup to look up a lot of subclasses, it would be more usable if it was not transient and you
could browse to all the subclasses by doubleclicking on them in the hierarchy popup. Now, every time you doubleclick a
class, the popup closes and you need to use ALT+F12 again to find/edit the next subclass. This is rather inefficient
because calculating all the subclasses of a class can be slow when there is a large amount of subclasses.

not sure what you mean by "hierarchy popup" ...
Comment 2 chris_v 2008-09-22 18:32:28 UTC
I meant the "inspect hierarchy" function (Alt+Shift+F12) when you right-click a class name and you select
Navigate/Inspect Hierarchy from the popup menu.
Comment 3 Jaromir Uhrik 2008-10-20 08:23:12 UTC
Thanks for the additional information you provided. Reassigning to proper component. I guess you meant following steps
to reproduce:
-open java file in editor
-invoke popup menu in editor pane
-in popup menu select Navigate/Inspect Hierarchy
-double click on an item in the left pane of the dialog
-->>dialog disappears
Comment 4 chris_v 2008-10-20 08:45:30 UTC
Yes. This is exactly what I meant. Sometimes it is very annoying that the dialog disappears (e.g. when you are changing
a lot of subclasses)
