Description Ken Frank 2008-08-21 20:59:54 UTC
am scanning source code to find possible instances
of hardcoding of font sizes or font names that might
not be standard jdk font names

since hardcoding of font sizes can lead to resize issues
(which can often be solved by using dynamic resizing using
layout managers and by using global ide font size instead
of hardcoding.

and since using font names that are not standard jdk font
names can lead to some fonts not being found, especially
for asian or other non english fonts.

We realize that some of this code might not be used or that
some of these examples might not be applicable

also, this is not meant to be complete since other
instances of these situations might be present using other
api names than patterns used for scanning - please check
code to see if other such cases and fix as needed.

also, suggest checking code to see that usages of setSize
and setPreferredSize calls don't hardcode actual sizes of
dialogs or other windows if it means that dynamic resizing
would not happen in these cases

Here are some instances found of these possible problems:

java.awt.Font("Dialog", 0, 12)); // NOI18N
