[ BUILD # : 200509221800 ]
[ JDK VERSION : 1.5.0_02 ]

It also add a image of the toolbar icon to the mouse when drag and 
drop. (Can't make a screenshot, so try it yourself)

Standa, please look at this. I am not sure we can do that for NB 5.0 ;(
Comment 8 Stanislav Aubrecht 2008-11-11 14:27:01 UTC
lordy, i tried the proposed changes to toolbar customizer and found a couple of problems:
- your customizer has only two-level hierarchy while the actions in netbeans (and platform applications) is a generic tree
- it doesn't look nice when some actions have very long labels (see attached screenshot)
- the tree-based customizer in current version of netbeans allows some sort of 'searching' by pressing the first key of
action name

but i'll leave it up to out HIE team to decide whether they want a new toolbar customizer
