Description esmithbss 2015-08-04 19:22:27 UTC
NB 8.0.2 full
Windows 7 Enterprise
JDK 1.7

Issue: When working on a lengthy process, the dialog for the lengthy process with a simple text message is displayed over the IDE, instead of the more common style spinner or other indicator drawn on the glass pane over the IDE.  

For very long operations (example: a clear case checkout of a file in a dynamic view stored on a network drive [between 5 and 60 seconds]) this is just as bad as not having the notification.

Add a progress bar or spinner on the dialog box along with the text of the operation.  For operations where a progress can be obtained, include an indication of remaining duration on the dialog.
