Description Chiana 2010-10-27 14:10:09 UTC
Don't know if this is the right way to do this, but one got to start somewhere...

What I like to have is the ability to change the type of an already inserted component, that is, if you have inserted an f.e. JTextField and then written a whole bunch of code for that, and then you suddenly reallize that what you should have used is a JFormattedTextField... The only way as I see it now to change that is to use wordpad or something similar useful and edit the .form file and that is not a particular safe method as if you do anything wrong you end up with redoing the entire component from scratch
