Description rcauble 2006-08-14 15:31:19 UTC
org.netbeans.spi.viewmodel.NodeModel simply has a getIconBase. If I return an 
icon base, this will not resolve to a .png, only a gif.
Comment 1 Martin Entlicher 2006-08-14 16:00:51 UTC
Well, this is a problem. It uses old deprecated API:
org.openide.nodes.AbstractNode.setIconBase(). It should delegate to
org.openide.nodes.AbstractNode.setIconBaseWithExtension() instead. But,
NodeModel is an interface and we can not simply add a new method

I do not see any other solution than introduce a new interface with
getIconBaseWithExtension() method. Though it's ugly.
Comment 2 Martin Entlicher 2006-09-07 14:08:01 UTC
There is a simple, but ugly workaround - rename icon.png to icon.gif
It will work fine, though it's not nice.
Comment 3 Martin Entlicher 2007-06-06 21:37:51 UTC
This is fixed now, after ExtendedNodeModel was committed to trunk. See issue
#104281. If you NodeModel would implement ExtendedNodeModel, you can use
getIconBaseWithExtension() method to return the full name of the icon, including
whatever extension you need.

Verified ... and Closing all issues resolved into NetBeans 6.7 and earlier.
