Description Milan Kubec 2004-06-18 08:17:35 UTC
Probably more general problem of GTK Filechooser,
but seen only when adding docs folder to java
platform as javadoc location.

Comment from Trung:
- we are having trouble w/ using GTK FileChooser
to choose a folder. On GTK the dialog has two 
columns side by side.  the left one show folders,
the right one shows files in the selected folder
(a la our New Project). If I select the folder on
the left column, click on Add Zip/Folder, I get
into that folder.  Not what I want.  If I manually
 write the name of the folder into the Selection"
field, then it works.
Comment 1 Milan Kubec 2004-06-18 08:45:39 UTC
Please reassign if only matter of Java Platform manager.
Comment 2 David Simonek 2004-06-18 11:39:46 UTC
I can't judge if it's general issue or not, so I reassign to projects,
ccing Tim who could know about the issue if it's indeed general.

Is this a duplicate or variation of ?  

Comment 4 _ tboudreau 2004-06-21 05:23:50 UTC
No, Travis, AFAICT it is just JFileChooser UI screwiness.
Comment 5 Tomas Zezula 2004-06-21 14:36:41 UTC
I set the fileSelectionMode into JFileChooser.FILES_AND_DIRECTORIES.
What can I do more?
