Description bugbridge 2007-02-01 21:45:25 UTC
Current API methods for delete and paste events make it difficult to support cut
and pate and copy and paste procedures, for want of a "clipboard" of some kind.
For example, if user creates a listbox, and modifies the options in the default
options bean, it would be nice to be able to copy the options bean's contents
when the listbox is copied and pasted. However, at paste time, there is no
straigtforward way for the new bean to determine which bean it was copied from.

Description (Entry 2):
There is a FacesDesignBean method for getting a facet, but none for setting.
This makes it difficult, when one component is dropped on another, to make the
dropped component a facet of the target component.
