Comment 1 Milos Kleint 2006-06-22 13:01:31 UTC
unfortunately not fixable within our current constraint (running against
binaries of netbeans 5.0)
the fix would involve rewriting the open project action to chage the component
opening/activation logic.

suggested change in projectui module
Comment 3 Milos Kleint 2007-02-01 15:12:51 UTC
please review this minor change to projects/projectui module. introduces a
system property check that influences behaviour.
Comment 4 Milos Kleint 2007-02-07 12:22:07 UTC
thanks for review I will integrate tomorrow.
Comment 5 Jesse Glick 2007-02-07 16:11:47 UTC
Please choose a different system property name that reflects the behavior, not
the fact that it is used in BlueJ (though that fact can be mentioned in arch.xml).

Generally use Boolean.getBoolean, not System.getProperty(...) != null. Otherwise
-Dprop=false or even -Dprop= will act like -Dprop=true, which is surprising. In
this case the default value is true, so you need to check
System.getProperty(...) == null || Boolean.getBoolean(...), or something like that.

"focus it's own component" -> "focus its own component" ("it's" ~ "it is"; "its"
