Description Jan Benway 2001-09-20 16:31:02 UTC
The property marking proposal has been implemented. The form editor can take
advantage of it -- it should because there are ways that user's values can
become invalid. The idea behind the feature is that if some property value
becomes invalid, don't set it to null or some default. Instead, leave what the
user set up there and allow the user to fix the problem. The property marking
feature lets the module mark these bad values so that the user is alerted to the
need to fix them.

One place that the component inspector could use this is when an icon is not
found. See bug:

There are probably many other places it could be used as well.

I'd say this was implemented already time ago.

I just tried with NB 4.1 FCS.  The disabled icon and disabled selected icon show
a red x - but they are null, not an error.  If I set the icon and then delete
the file and restart the IDE, the icon property does not show the red x and the
text shows File:/...

So, I think there is still a problem here.
