----------------------------------------

             Summary: Make JPopUp (Context menus) Scrollable
                 Key: NETBEANS-2042
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NETBEANS-2042
             Project: NetBeans
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: platform - Window System
    Affects Versions: Next
            Reporter: Christian Lenz


If you are working on a not big laptop sometimes the amount of features inside of the context
menu, doesn't fit into the screen or is overloaded. (Hardware is still powerful but other
resolution and other window size: http://www.browsercheck.me/de/report/gn4y8epgkxwggkk/)

So for this, I prefer to change the behaviour of the JPopupMenu that it should be scroll inside
of it. See here a suggestion: http://trelford.com/blog/image.axd?picture=ContextMenu_thumb.png

VS Code also implemented it: https://code.visualstudio.com/updates/v1_30#_scrolling-menus

So they are implemented it not only for menus, as the description says. And I think for NetBeans
it doesn't matter whether it is a context menu, when you right click or a menubar entry. Only
guessing, that all of them are JPopupMenus. If not, please let me know, then I will create
a new ticket for the menus too.
