Re: [jawe] RFE: Dialog Refresh Behaviour - Retain Active Tab


thanks for the input - we'll try to implement this change.


BTW, the ability to change the content of Activity Properties dialog when new 
activity is selected has been introduced in JaWE-beta2
version, and thanks to your initial suggestions for improving JaWE.
