Description Jesse Glick 2009-09-03 18:18:13 UTC
DataEditorSupport marks up editor tabs with modified and/or r/o status according to a nontrivial algorithm, made more
complex by the possibility of disabling issue #47290. This code is duplicated in several modules which use custom editor
components, such as form (due to use of multitab) and properties (for historical reasons in the editor, and also in the
table view). A public utility method is needed to centralize the implementation.

Please include a link to an example of usage.

Y01 Making "static boolean TABNAMES_HTML" final would allow the client HotSpot compiler to throw away half of the

The changeset includes several examples.

Y01 - yes but then the unit test cannot change it.

I was looking for a link to the changeset.  In case it is useful to others, here it is:

raccah - you can wait for a production build to incorporate a changeset, or just install
