Description Jesse Glick 2002-02-25 18:21:19 UTC
Kind of yucky--e.g. putting ContextTreeView w/ PropertySheetView will
not work, because they have different ideas of what selected vs.
context nodes should be for.

Also PropertyPanel should be supported nicely, somehow.

If you need a volunteer, I can help a bit.
Comment 2 Jesse Glick 2002-05-14 23:11:03 UTC
Sure, if you like. I think we need a new template category in
apisupport, "Explorer API", with a panel template (incl. .form file);
and palette beans for common views and I guess also PropertyPanel,
which might need some special property editors for its stuff (not clear).
Comment 3 Marek Grummich 2002-07-22 08:20:46 UTC
Target milestone was changed from '3.4' to TBD.

Here are the Explorer API components I would find really useful to have on the palette:

- BeanTreeView
- OutlineView

FWIW, this would be trivial to do in an external module.

> FWIW, this would be trivial to do in an external module.

Agreed. But with very little effort it could be a good addition to the IDE itself. It would improve usability and visibility of these very powerful components.

Votes + duplicates > 10. Marking as P2. :)

+1: It would be useful.
Comment 12 markiewb 2013-03-11 22:54:44 UTC
Should be easy. You could even add them manually - see

Any volunteers?
