Description mienamoo 2013-01-22 06:52:32 UTC
Created attachment 130476 [details]
Screenshot of Report Problem dialog

NetBeans build 201301200001
JDK 7u11 64-bit

I noticed that the Report Problem dialog's contents stretch to be as wide as the title of the problem report. Which was very long indeed in the case of the screenshot. The resulting horizontal scrollbar also causes a vertical scrollbar to appear since now one line is no longer visible.

Thanks for the fix! Now I just need to find a way to generate an exception, so that I can verify it... :)
Comment 4 mienamoo 2013-01-24 10:22:02 UTC
To test, I created my own standalone module that just throws and exception. :) 

The whole dialog now resizes, which is better than before for shorter messages. But if the dialog becomes wider than the screen resolution, similar problems still occur. Consider constraining the size of the dialog and/or textfield instead?
