Description Jan Becicka 2005-03-03 12:39:19 UTC
CloseButtonTabbedPane would be very useful ui
class. We have an enhancement to implement close
icons [x] on Find Usages tabs. Unfortunately
CloseButtonTabbedPane is not an API class and I
cannot use it. I made CloseButtonTabbedPane public
(locally) and did a prototype and it works. 

Would it be possible to move
into some public package (e.g.

Would it be possible to do it for promo-E?

Yes, but too late for promo E. We are month past the feature freeze.
Comment 2 David Simonek 2005-05-09 16:15:25 UTC
Hmm, careful with this, we found that small "x" are not that great UI, Firefox
solution (one X on the side) is better, see 40248 and related.

Does anyone know the status of this IZ?  Has CloseButtonTabbedPane been moved to
a public package, and does it still have the same name?

I have need of this class, and would rather not create a third copy of it.

i've made some improvements in output window's tab pane (different 'close' icons
for different look and feels) so i'll take care of this issue.
i'll probably add some factory class providing instances of special JTabbedPane
with 'close' buttons
Comment 5 Stanislav Aubrecht 2007-03-08 11:44:09 UTC
the new API is now available (see #96754), closing
Comment 6 Jan Lahoda 2010-06-28 06:42:55 UTC
Not sure why this was moved, but this does not seem to relate to java.source modules, so restoring original values.
