Description David Simonek 2005-03-04 11:38:03 UTC
For some top components which have frequently
changing and/or long title, it is desirable to
have shorter, non changing title for top component
in sliding state.
known examples at this time are Navigator and
Property Sheet windows.

Note that issues 52811 and 53776 were just workarounded using private property
API. Real API is still needed.
Comment 2 David Simonek 2005-05-09 16:17:28 UTC
Passing to Milos, to have something easy and fast to implement :-)
Comment 3 Milos Kleint 2005-05-10 10:39:30 UTC
how about TopComponent.getStaticDisplayName() or getShortDisplayName()?

Comment 4 Milos Kleint 2006-07-27 07:40:18 UTC
reassigning to dsimonek
Comment 5 Maros Sandor 2007-05-28 16:12:35 UTC
This would also be used by the "Versioning Output" TopComponent.
