Description iformanek 2005-09-14 14:50:09 UTC
It would be very useful in a module UI (profiler in our case) to allow the user 
to jump directly to the options to configure something related to what he is 
trying to do - e.g. in a message box that warns the user about something being 
set wrong, one of the actions could be to tweak the setting before continuing.

An API that allows to open the Options dialog, and select some category would 
be great. Sufficient for us would be API that is part of the OptionsCategory 
class, allowing to open the dialog with this specific category selected. 
However, it might be more useful to have some type of Id (a-la HelpIdx) 
associated with all panels (and possibly their subtabs, it the panel uses 
JTabbedPane) that would allow to open and edit an arbitrary setting.
