      Description

      Currently, entries in the property page of the Root DSE (controls, extended operations, features) are selectable, but it is not able to copy them (no context menu, Ctrl-C does not work). It would be very nice, if the user could copy the entries to the clipboard, because OIDs make excellent search terms (Google etc.), but it is tedious to retype them ("1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.101.119.1").

        Perhaps we could replace the existing table viewer with the entry editor widget. Then the user has all the features like in the entry editor, including copy to clipboard.

        This sounds great, Stefan.
        Although I do not know, whether the effort is worth it. Unfortunately, my RCP skills do not suffice to perform the proposed change on my own. And we have probably more important features in the queue which need your or PAMs skills ...

        Hi Stefan Z.,

        I checked the "Root DSE property page" and I would suggest the following:

        • Move your contribution (ResourceBundle to translate OIDs to their descriptions) to the core-plugin.
        • Create a value editor based on this ResourceBundle, so that all OID based attributes would benefit. With such a value editor the attributes supportedControl, supportedExtension and supportedFeature of the Root DSE would automatically be displayed like "1.2.3.4 (Description)".
        • Remove the tabs Controls, Extensions, Features and Raw from the Root DSE property page because all the information is already there when selecting the Root DSE in the LDAP Browser and viewing its attributes. It is just a bunch of code that is not very useful.

        Oh, I forgot to mention that it is possible to select/copy OIDs in the Entry Editor when browsing the Root DSE.

        Removed the "Raw" tab. Replaced the List widgets with selectable text fields.

        Fixed here:
