Description David Strupl 2003-03-24 21:31:50 UTC
When a custom L&F is used it is sometimes
desirable to pass some information (like a
putClienProperty) from the swing classes to the ui
classes. I will provide a patch for review. I
would be gratefull for a review whether thing like
this can go to the main trunk.

Because Window System v1 will not be supported from now by our team, all old
winsys issues (now "core/window system v1" issues) are going to be closed as

Changes in API which emerged both from UI spec 
and problems with adjusting to the older API are described in the document
 It shows also recommends how the client code should be adjusted to the new
window system.

If you think this issue apply also to the new winsys then change the
subcomponent (to "core/window system") and REOPEN it.

David is it obsolete or is it still valid?
Comment 4 David Strupl 2003-11-26 14:26:44 UTC
Our look and feel still needs some rendering hints. I have even
updated our patch - this is now only in NbPresenter. There are several
putClientProperty. But as the code is specific to our LAF I am not
sure whether code like this can go to the trunk.

In fact I would like to hear your opinion about this. The code marks
certain panels as foreground and other as background. The look and
feel then uses different colors to render them. If majority (or module
owner if that matters) would be against this we will have to keep this
code in our private branch.

Also please don't close this issue because it is not resolved. It is
marked as ENH so it should not spoil your statistics ;-)
Comment 6 David Strupl 2007-02-23 10:49:51 UTC
I have filed a new issue 96419 that will contain a patch dealing only with
borders and without the rendering hints. We will solve the hints by providing a
custom DialogDisplayer.
