Rectangular Block Selection in NetBeans 7.1

Rectangular block selection is now available in NetBeans 7.1:

Couldn't install it in 7.0 (Build 201104080000)

When I try to install it I get this error:

///////////////////
The plugin org.netbeans.modules.editor.deprecated.pre61settings is requested in version 1.0.

The following plugin is affected: Rectangular Edit Tools

Some plugins require plugin Editor Library to be installed.

The plugin Editor Library is requested in version >= 1.27 (release version 1) but only 3.8.1.13.9 (of release version different from 1) was found.

The following plugin is affected:       Rectangular Edit Tools
//////////////////

=(

I don't see a way to "attache" a bug report to this plugin, so I thought I'd just throw it in here. I'm not even sure this does what I want ?"rectangular"? I'm assuming "block/multi-line" is meant, because it's rather astonishing that THAT isn't in the core of an IDE's requirements.

Installs in 7.0

This plugin installs in 7.0, and seems to work, although I haven't done anything except a rectangular insert.

REL Netbeans 6.5.1 works but selection highlight misleads user.

Armarra, you are correct. I was not able to implement the rectangular highlight overlay. If anyone knows how to do this I will be happy to look into it.

Netbeans 6.5.1 works but selection highlight misleads user.

Hi, I've put this into 6.5.1 and found that it does work, though when I select the text to cut or copy or paste.

the highlight remains across the whole lines even though the cut / copy /delete / clear icons behave correctly in only picking up the area you have spanned with your mouse.

So.. If you ignore the highlighted text and just remember the area you have selected , that area will be the target of your icon click despite the text highlight telling you its the whole lines.

RE: Last line

I will have a look. I recall faintly that due to some bugs in the Swing's AbstractDocument implementation there are issues with selection, insert and delete on the last line.

Last line

I have just started using this and it has been helpful. But It doesn't work on the last line. If your selection goes all the way to the last line it doesn't work. I'm working on 6.5RC2.
Thanks

RE: Netbeans 6.5beta

Netbeans 6.5beta

I really dig this plugin, but it seems not to be working with netbeans 6.5-beta, the log contains a bunch of
WARNING [org.openide.filesystems.Ordering]: Could not find both sides of relative ordering attribute Edit/Rectangle on Toolbars
WARNING [org.openide.filesystems.Ordering]: Relative ordering attribute Rectangle/File on Toolbars is deprecated in favor of numeric position attributes

Aparently it having problem adding the buttons to the toolbar - and in fact the plugin is really loaded! The search/replace works with the keyboards bindings, Ctrl+Alt+R etc...

Did you run into any specific issues?

NetBeans 6?

Anyone know if this works with new NetBeans releases?

Rectangular Paste needs a non-destructive/insert option

The way I would (and do) normally use a copied rectangular selection is to move my cursor to the destination and then the paste 'inserts' my rectangular selection into the existing text non-destructively. The existing text is simply moved over to the right the width of the selection being pasted.

The current functionality only supports a destructive paste that requires you to manually move all the text over, rectangularly select the newly created blank area and then paste. The alternative is the normal paste that forces carriage returns after each line in the rectangular selection.

The rest of the functionality works great - thanks for the plugin.
