How to open the Project Properties dialog for a project, at a specific tab:

public Action getPreferredAction() {
return new AbstractAction() {
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
project.getLookup().lookup(CustomizerProvider2.class).showCustomizer("tabName", "subTabName");

    Not true exactly, there is a mistake in this API, the preselectedSubCategory parameter is not used. See its Javadoc:


    * Show customizer and preselect a category or subcategory.

    * @param preselectedCategory <b>category or subcategory</b> to be selected

    * @param preselectedSubCategory <b>not used</b>
