Description Jesse Glick 2003-12-09 14:24:59 UTC
See issue #37806 for details. This issue should be
fixed independently of that issue; it is certainly
not good for the persistence ID for an editor tab
to include display attributes such as the dot in
the file extension, or the modified asterisk, or
who knows what. The ID should be either the base
name of the file, or its absolute path, etc.

OK, it would be "really good(tm)" to do it before release.

Comment 2 Petr Nejedly 2004-02-02 13:13:27 UTC
I'd go for base name.
What if the base name changes, do I have to fire a preferredIdChange? ;-)

Not as trivial as it seems on the first look because of DataSystems
separation through Envs.
Have to declare protected method and override it.

OK, fixed with API addition (protected String CES.documentID(), which
is called from CloneableEditor and defaults to original behaviour
Overriden the method from DataEditorSupport to fetch the info from
