Description llturro 2004-08-23 19:21:33 UTC
Currently the only way to close all projects is
going one by one. It would be good if we could
close them all at once.
Comment 1 Jesse Glick 2004-08-23 20:41:08 UTC
Just multiselect them (e.g. in the Projects tab using the Shift key)
and you can close them all (by context menu or File menu).

Jano feel free to reopen if you think it may be desirable to have a
File -> Close All Projects action.
Comment 2 Marian Mirilovic 2005-12-20 16:04:59 UTC
This issue was solved long time ago. Because nobody has reopened it neither
added comments, we are verifying/closing it now. 
If you are still able to reproduce the problem, please reopen. 

Thanks in advance.
Comment 3 llturro 2005-12-20 16:46:44 UTC
Closing all projects:

1) CTRL-A (select all in project view)
2) File -> Close n projects

Contextual menu doesn't work when project nodes are expanded.

I do agree closing it, although isn't solved miriam ;D
Comment 4 Jesse Glick 2005-12-20 19:44:09 UTC
True, it's more awkward than it probably needs to be. Question is whether longer
term we expect users to be routinely closing all projects. Probably subsumed by
other efforts to make project snapshots or other kinds of groupings.

It also easy to implement as an action. We only need a committer - as in #190839 "Close other projects". Anybody?

package closeotherprojects;

import java.awt.event.ActionEvent;
import java.awt.event.ActionListener;
import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.Arrays;
import java.util.List;
import org.netbeans.api.project.Project;
import org.netbeans.api.project.ui.OpenProjects;
import org.openide.awt.ActionID;
import org.openide.awt.ActionReference;
import org.openide.awt.ActionRegistration;
import org.openide.util.NbBundle.Messages;

    category = "Project",
id = "closeotherprojects.CloseAllProjectsAction")
    displayName = "#CTL_CloseAllProjectsAction")
@Messages("CTL_CloseAllProjectsAction=Close all projects")
@ActionReference(path = "Projects/Actions")
public final class CloseAllProjectsAction implements ActionListener

    public CloseAllProjectsAction()

    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent ev)
        OpenProjects manager = OpenProjects.getDefault();
        List<Project> openProjects = new ArrayList<Project>(Arrays.asList(manager.getOpenProjects()));

        if (!openProjects.isEmpty())
            Project[] projectsToBeClosed = openProjects.toArray(new Project[openProjects.size()]);
            System.out.println("closing " + projectsToBeClosed);

There was already plugin for it. But only verified until NB7.0
