Description _ tboudreau 2003-07-18 11:20:24 UTC
PropertySupport.Reflection allows the client to
set the
property editor class;  however, if there is a problem
instantiating that property, it catches any
exceptions in
empty catch blocks.  So the client simply never
sees their
property editor, and has no idea what's wrong.

At the very least, the problem should be logged.

was indeed because of the silent catches. My editor was an inner

As you fix that you might want to add a small note to the javadoc for
PropertySupport.Reflection.setPropertyEditorClass not to use
inner classes.

Taking over the node bugs from phrebejk.
Comment 4 Petr Nejedly 2004-01-09 17:06:28 UTC
Will fix ASAP for 3.6
At worst it will show an exception dialog for broken properties,
but will work as before.
