Description aschwarz1309 2016-11-29 21:35:16 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE 8.2 (Build 201609300101)
Operating System = Windows 10 version 10.0 running on amd64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.8.0_111
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 25.111-b14

Reproducibility: Happens every time

An apology. There seems to be an errorin one of the online tutorial. I don't know where else to post the discrepancy. Please provide the correct location, if this isn't it, and I will repost. I posted on the forum asking form help. Several views. No help.

On the other hand, this may be a legitimate error.


I am trying to follow the directions inthe above page. The directions specify to go to the control 'Icon' property and click on the ellipses (...).
[1] There is no ellipses.
[2] There is no file chooser pop-up.

Same issue for "Adding a File Chooser to a GUI Application". In the "Implementing a File Filter " section the fileFilter property does not have ellipses (...) and I can not get the popup box to add a filter.

Is this a bug in the documentation? How do I load an image/use a file chooser?
