Description _ tboudreau 2003-04-29 11:23:26 UTC
It is now possible to hint that a single line,
based custom editor should be used.  I will attach
a small
patch to accomplish this.

Note, it would also be possible to suppress the custom
editor entirely - it's not terribly useful, as
names are
usually short enough.  If you want to do that, change
the text hint in the patch from "oneline" to

Tim, thanx. I will commit it today. I like the change, I used
"suppressCustomEditor". Btw. are there a constants defined for these

Next time feel free to commit change like this yourself.

The strings are defined in core, so I'm afraid you have
to type them :-(

They are, however, documented in the main Explorer 
API documentation.

I think there are a lot of string properties that would be
better off with the single line or no property editor.  
However, I'm a bit afraid to make single line the default,
since it would probably break some things.

BTW, you can also pass the hint "instructions" to provide
instruction text in the string editor.
