Description brunoborges 2013-04-19 00:45:32 UTC
Currently, to delete several projects at the same time, NetBeans will popup a "Delete project" dialog for each project.

It would be nice to have a UI with a list of selected projects, and a checkbox aside each one for "Also delete sources under ..."
Comment 1 Michel Graciano 2013-04-19 23:29:07 UTC
It would be a welcome improvement.

This is not a duplicate of 74296.

This is not a bug, it is a proposal for better User Experience (UX) as the process to delete several projects is really annoying, when it displays several dialogs, one for each project.

It should be one single dialog with checkboxes (and select all/select none buttons).

Please consider this for NB 7.4. This request has been around for a while.
Comment 4 Martin Kozeny 2013-10-08 08:38:33 UTC
Well it would be quite difficult to implement, b/c there is used API action ActionProvider for every project and through particular implementation of this API is created delete project dialog...

This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.

Thanks for your cooperation,
