Description Jens Vo 2006-12-29 05:55:06 UTC
The addition of a "comments" field for the test plan was a step in the right 
direction. However, it would be great if we could get the same thing for all 
test elements.

Addition of "comments" field for all test elements

The attached zip file contains a number of patches for existing source files as
well as two new files. I did a bit of refactoring to the NamePanel and
extracted as much code into an abstract superclass as could possibly be reused
by the new CommentPanel class. Moreover, I enhanced the JTree in the MainFrame
class a bit to display the test elements' comments as tool tips.

I think that the number of rows (3) I picked for the comment field is a good
compromise, however, other people might have other views on this.

Finally, the real pita is going to be the update to the documentation (dozens
of new screen shots in section 18 of the user's manual...)

Update all GUI elements to correctly show the new comments field

Some existing GUI elements do not show the new comments field introduced in the
first patch fo this enhancement request. The attached ZIP file contains 22
patches to the GUI element classes that failed to do so; with these, all JMeter
elements should now correctly display the comments field.

Thanks.

The feature has been added to SVN and will appear in the next release of JMeter
