Description bugbridge 2007-02-02 19:01:58 UTC
Original Target Release: shortfin_dev; Suggested Target Milestone : 5.5


for Creator project
- Runtime/ Databases
- It is better to have "Add to page" when right click the database table, so
that it can be binded to table instead of  only Drag and Drop

In Thresher and Leopard, we have this function

Description (Entry 2):
This is a regression and not an RFE. Hence, i changed this one to a bug and
added keyword 'regression'.

This is a design change, not a regression.

The database explorer functionality in Shortfin is provided by Netbeans,
including the context menu for the various database nodes.

The "Add to Page" function is not meaningful in Netbeans, since NB can be used
in many cases where the concept of a "page" is not meaningful.  Therefore the
functionality cannot be put back on the database nodes; it's not consistent with
the Netbeans UI.  

The alternative method for doing this, which works, is D&D.

Since everything works as designed, I have removed the REGRESSION keyword, and
will leave this open as an RFE.
