Description _ gtzabari 2003-12-05 02:18:42 UTC
dev build 200311301900

   Once a user expands the TOOLS pulldown menu,
its contents should not be modified. I keep on
hitting TOOLS and scrolling down with the arrow
keys and then the menu contents change mid-way and
the cursor gets reset back to the top of the menu.
This is both annoying and confusing.

I suppose you mean Tools menu from Menu bar. I did not see this
behaviour on Linux. I will try on Win XP.
Comment 2 _ tboudreau 2004-02-21 18:41:42 UTC
Hopefully we'll be able to revisit the entire way menus are implemented in NetBeans for 
the next release - the code is old and has problems, and changes are needed both to 
make dual monitors and the screen menu on OS-X work properly.  It's too late in the game 
for 3.6.
Comment 3 _ tboudreau 2004-04-06 23:03:46 UTC
Passing to Milos, our current menu warrior.
Comment 4 Milos Kleint 2004-07-13 14:34:50 UTC
requires JinlineMenu rewrite, removal.
Comment 5 Jan Chalupa 2005-03-17 18:19:20 UTC
So, do we positively know that the contents of the Tools menu is modified while
it's being displayed? Any proof? I no longer see the originally reported
behavior in NB 4.x builds.
Comment 6 _ gtzabari 2005-03-17 18:33:02 UTC
I just verified that under dev build 200503161050, when the TOOLS menu is
expanded and we discover "synchronize" shouldn't be available as an option we
disable it instead of removing it from the menu. This fixed the problem I reported.
Comment 7 Milos Kleint 2005-03-18 08:38:05 UTC
the code that listens to changes in Tools action when it's visible is still
there. The fact that it works for you is probably just a coincidence.
Comment 8 Milos Kleint 2005-07-14 08:50:00 UTC
fixed in trunk. will be part of 20050714 daily build.
