Description aeps 2014-02-04 15:29:22 UTC
Place a JFormattedTextField on a JPanel, add a mask. NB creates this code:

    try {
      jFormattedTextField1.setFormatterFactory(new javax.swing.text.DefaultFormatterFactory(new javax.swing.text.MaskFormatter("###-####")));
    } catch (java.text.ParseException ex) {

After that, right click on the formatterFactory an press restore default value. NB leaves the following code:

    try {
    } catch (java.text.ParseException ex) {

in the private void initComponents(), that can not be edited. So you have to open the file in a Texteditor and delete this code.

Workaround is to change the format (formatterFactory) to something else than mask first (that will remove the try/catch code), then restore default value.
