Description _ jrichard 2001-11-17 04:48:56 UTC
If I just start the ide from a fresh install, go to the sampledir,
make a group (called sources), copy and paste a directory into the
group (I pasted sampledir/examples/advanced there), and then
try to delete the pasted directory, I get a message:
   Are you sure you want to delete advanced -> examples/advanced and all of its

The "all of its contents" makes it seem like the whole directory
will be blown away, whereas only the link is deleted if I hit delete.
Comment 1 Jan Zajicek 2001-11-19 14:10:07 UTC
I think that the behaviour should be the same as by links. When you
try to delete 'advanced -> examples/advanced' it is regural link so
why you see delete message for ordinary directory:

Are you sure you want to delete advanced -> examples/advanced and all
of its contents?

And not the right one for links:

Are you sure you want to delete advanced (link to examples/advanced)?

Increassing to P2 and passing to the utilities module - package where
GroupShadow resides.
Comment 2 Peter Zavadsky 2001-11-19 14:31:03 UTC
Reassigned to utilities.
Comment 3 _ lkramolis 2001-11-19 15:30:56 UTC
I will investigate it. It is P5 bug.
Comment 4 _ lkramolis 2001-11-22 10:57:53 UTC
Reassigned to openide.

It is impossible to change delete message. Delete message is composed
in org.openide.explorer.ExplorerActions and node is not able to offer

I would like to display for group node similar message as link
(DataShadow) has, but ExplorerActions.ConfirmationInvoker does not
allow it.
Comment 5 Jan Zajicek 2001-11-22 11:46:59 UTC
Moving to explorer subcomponent.
Comment 6 Jan Chalupa 2001-11-27 13:03:10 UTC
Target milestone -> 3.3.1.
Comment 7 David Strupl 2001-12-04 17:42:02 UTC
Passing back to utilities module. Unfortunately this bug cannot be
fixed without 10145. So making it dependent on this one. After the API
is available the utilities module will be able to fix this bug.
Comment 8 _ lkramolis 2001-12-10 08:07:34 UTC
Impossible to fix without new API, so target milestone changed to 3.4.
Comment 9 Marek Grummich 2002-07-19 17:25:16 UTC
Target milestone was changed from not determined to TBD
Comment 10 Marian Petras 2003-02-03 16:36:51 UTC
According to the dependency on issue #10145 which is targetted for
version 4.0, this issue cannot be fixed sooner. So setting target
milestone to 4.0, too.
Comment 11 Marian Petras 2003-03-03 12:42:45 UTC
Issue #10145 (Need an API to disable cut/delete/rename actions for a
selected fileobject in the VCS filesystem) is not fixed yet, so target
milestone is changed to S1S 5.
Comment 12 Marian Petras 2005-02-21 13:48:22 UTC
As module utilities/group has been removed from the standard build in NetBeans
4.0 and its further development is not planned, I mark this bug as WONTFIX.
