Description _ tboudreau 2004-04-19 23:24:06 UTC
A bunch of problems here that need to be fixed:
 - Toolbar initialization causes main window revalidation
 - GUI components that implement an interface controlled/
loaded by random threads is a bad idea; GUI components that 
implement anything are usually a bad idea
 - The UI design is not well thought out, just a legacy of 
NetBeans Developer X2 five years later - lots of really useless 
functionality like renaming toolbars that just needs to go away
 - The draggable grip/ui stuff should be moved into the plaf 
library - for Aqua and GTK the visual presentation is already 
there, but for other LFs it is implemented as a subcomponent, 
making the code considerably more complex than it needs to be

Re-assigning Tim's issues to Dafe.
Comment 2 David Simonek 2005-05-06 22:24:41 UTC
Still valid I think.
