Description kalali 2005-10-24 20:23:19 UTC
[ BUILD # : 200510131600 ]
[ JDK VERSION : 1.5.0_03 ]

If we select an  event from  properties windows or pop-up menue 
Editor does not open and point into the Event source code.
Sorry if it is not clear ;-) example should show better

For example :
-Drop a label onto the form.
-open the Properties window by pressing CTRL+Shift+7
-click on Events button.
-choose one of the events and double click on <none>

Now the Skeleton for that event is created in editor but , IDE should automatically 
swithc to source view and point the cursor inside event (method) body.
I think it increase the coding speed:-)

Ok , it was a mess with my IDE , it was a long time that i do not restart it
but now after restart , it switch to code editor when you select an event from 
pop-up menue.but im sure when you select an event from properties  window it not
select to code editor .

The double-click on <none> in property sheet doesn't add the event handler.
In fact it is equivalent to single click - it starts editing of the name
of the event handler. The handler is added when you confirm the name
by pressing Enter. The Source tab is opened on my machine after that.

Are you still able to reproduce the issue? If so, could please, provide
as much details as you can - to allow me to find what is different in our
scenarios. Thank you in advance.

it is correct , it open code editor after user confirm the event.
but i think it is more useable if user just double click on event and IDE build
the event with a default name and then switch to editor.
if this manner is based on Specefication then i think this issue should be closed.

I re-opne it and fill it as an enhanceent.
because it speed up users when developing GUIs.
its better that we look at other RAD environment and accept what is appropriate
in thier design.
i used delphi for years and i can see this double click and "event created "
cursor is in position  in all other IDEs that i used.

removing INCOMPLETE keyword and leave for developer evaluation
