Description osbald 2008-06-27 14:38:34 UTC
With the addition of beansbindings to Netbeans it's likely form developers will either be using bindings or event
listeners, but probably not both - well I'd strongly discourage it. 

For developers coming from the bindings mindset I'd be really useful if we could turn off the automatic creation of
ad-hoc event listeners on double-click etc.. as its very easy to do by accident while editing a form and a pain to
remove the empty stubs when you do. Can we have an option to turn some of these gestures off (like the formslayout

It'd be quite useful for me to turn these off for the whole project to make sure some of the junior developers aren't
tempted to fall back into comfortable habits.
