YouTube: Automatically Undocked Windows on the NetBeans Platform

Another quick and soundless movie, around 7 minutes this time. Let's say you have a requirement in your NetBeans Platform application that all your windows should be undocked at startup of the application. How do you reconfigure the NetBeans Platform window system to support this? Rather than creating lots of configuration files manually and registering them manually in the layer.xml file, there's a much better and faster solution. But also less well known. Watch this screencast to find out!

The above is the answer to a question by Steve Montgomery from Austin, Texas. Are there other short things that you'd like to see, in relation to NetBeans IDE, on YouTube? Let me know! Your wish is, more or less, probably, without making any actual promises or commitments up front, my command!

The focus of this blog is mostly on NetBeans (a development tool primarily for Java programmers), with an occasional reference to NetBeans, and sometimes diverging to topics relating to NetBeans. And then there are days when NetBeans is mentioned, just for a change.
