Description jarecsni 2002-07-25 13:44:30 UTC
A simple program that creates a NetBeans property sheet 
using a BeanNode wrapper produces strange behavior when 
run independently from the IDE.

1. The editors like JFileCooser and String editor dialog 
cannot be closed with the cancel button

2. the editor dialog for indexed properties cannot be used 
at all (cannot create a new item)

I haven't tried others like ColorChooser but I suppose 
there are problems with them too.

I attach the sources for both the simple program (PTest2) 
and the bean (TestBean3). Execution environment is as 



public class PTest2 extends JFrame  {
    /** Creates a new instance of PTest2 */
    public PTest2(String title) throws Exception {
        Container c = this.getContentPane();
        TestBean3 testBean = new TestBean3();
        final BeanNode bn = new BeanNode(testBean);
        final PropertySheet ps = new PropertySheet();
        this.setSize(300, 400);
        SwingUtilities.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
            public void run() {
                ps.setNodes(new Node[] { bn } );
    public static void main(String[] args) throws 
Exception {

        java.beans.PropertyEditor pe =

        // this must be placed after the call to 
findEditor, otherwise
        // the primitive editors does not get loaded 
(oddly enough for me :)
        new String[] 
{ "org.netbeans.beaninfo.editors",    // NOI18N
        "org.openide.explorer.propertysheet.editors" }); //
        new PTest2("Test");
import java.beans.*;

    private String[] freeTimeActivity;
