Description kitfox 2005-11-25 16:49:21 UTC
To explicity set the size of the editing window of a JPanel in the form editor,
you need to double click on the purple border surrounding the panel area.  This
brings up the Set Form Designed Size dialog box, where you can enter new
dimensions for the form.  At the moment, you need to explicitly type in integers
seperated by ", ".  If the comma or space is missing, you request to change size
fails.  It would be nice if this was more forgiving, and simply looked for any
separating character between the two numbers.

Reassigning to form, please evaluate.
