Description guimar 2009-04-07 01:37:04 UTC
The   private void initComponents() and other routines in a class are write protected and cannot be edited.
It needs to be overridable, otherwise you can not use a global search and replace to make changes,
or manually fix a typo. It is real annoying to have to close netbeans load the file in another ide to make changes and 
then come back to compile. The designer is usful for graphic layout but is way to slow for make all of the property 
changes especially if you want to edit more than on field.
