Using Processor Expert components makes my development faster and easier. And when I have a useful piece of software I want to distribute or use in another project, I transform it into a Processor Expert component. But recently I noticed a strange thing with my components: the inherited components did not show the methods and events?
I have created a new component with the Component Wizard and inherited from the FreeCntr component. But there was no icon to unfold that inherited component to see its methods and events:
I know that this is possible, as other components indeed can show this. After some research and asking around, I have found the solution to enable unfolding:
The trick is to open the .bean file and to find following part in it:
Then change the value from false to true:
This does the magic and allows me to show the methods (and events, if there are any):
Happy Inheriting 🙂
