Description Jesse Glick 1999-06-27 00:12:24 UTC
Suggested special support for these kinds of targets:

- If target is a JPopupMenu, provide a special extra option in Step 2 of the Conn Wiz, "Display Popup"; would take a component to display it over (any visual component on form, default the form itself
 I guess); and a position to display it at (either absolute coordinates, or computed relative to some other component`s position, default the source component, default in the center or something like


- If target is a layout for some container on the form, permit this, and treat it like any other target. Instead of using a variable, would use var for the container, getLayout(), cast to known type.
Then users could visually do things like call methods on CardLayout.

Changing target milestone to fututre. Not sure there is a chance to implement
it, but the two are nice use cases.
