Description David Simonek 2006-10-12 14:51:30 UTC
Enable tracking of opened and closed TopComponents. Currently, only way to do it
is to listen to property change on TopComponent.Registry to get a set of opened
TopComponents. Extracting needed info is complicated, error prone and may lead
to memory leaks.

Proposed solution - simple and compatible API addition:
- add two new property constants "PROP_TC_OPENED" and "PROP_TC_CLOSED" into
TopComponent.Registry. Clients will get recently opened or closed top component
through calling getNewValue() on received event.

I'm asking for fast track review of this API change. I'll attach the diff. Also
note that implementation of 2710 relies on this API change.
