Description ats37 2001-11-15 19:02:05 UTC
When executing a "Refresh recursively", the popup window 
(titled "Retrieving...") can easily become lost under other 
windows/applications (e.g. if you click elsewhere on the main window while it's 
working).  It doesn't appear separately on Windows' taskbar, though, making it 
non-obvious how to return it to the front so you can see if it's finished (in 
fact, you can get back to it with Alt-Tab).

In addition, it stays open when it's finished waiting for the user to click the 
Close button.  As a result, you can end up with a whole bunch of them buried in 
the depths of your desktop.  Perhaps it should be made modal, or at least stay 
on top of the main NetBeans window so you can see it?

Comment 4 Martin Entlicher 2004-11-24 16:09:18 UTC
Retrieving window should be probably removed. The refreshes are done
on background anyway.
