metal L&F

Open standard file chooser dialog in java (open and save in metal L&F). There are extra mnemonic keys at the button label. In English, there is no mnemonic key. Attached are the screen shots.

In the internal build of message drop 1 in 7u6. The mnemonic key on cancel button is removed. But for open and save button, there is still the mnemonic key. 


Above are for metal L&F.

EVALUATION changeset: http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk8/awt/jdk/rev/4b470e9017da

EVALUATION The fix consists of the 2 parts: 1) Remove mnemonics from the FileChooser.cancelButton.textAndMnemonic property for locales different from the default in Basic resources. 2) Add FileChooser.saveButton.textAndMnemonic and FileChooser.openButton.textAndMnemonic properties without mnemonics to the all Metal resources. So the Metal L&F will not have the mnemonics on the JFileChooser open and save buttons. The JFileChooser cancel button does not have a mnemonic in the default Basic resource. To be consistent the cancel button mnemonic is removed for the others Basic locales as well.

EVALUATION According to the issue 5081721 the Open, Save and Cancel buttons should not have mnemonics for the FileChooser. However they existed in the *.properties files: ------------------------------------------ FileChooser.cancelButtonText=\u53D6\u6D88 FileChooser.cancelButtonMnemonic=67 FileChooser.saveButtonText=\u4FDD\u5B58 FileChooser.saveButtonMnemonic=83 FileChooser.openButtonText=\u6253\u5F00 FileChooser.openButtonMnemonic=79 ------------------------------------------ Because of this the convertiong tool adds the mnemonics to the end of the unified text and mnemonic properties: ------------------------------------------ FileChooser.cancelButton.textAndMnemonic=\u53D6\u6D88(&C) FileChooser.saveButton.textAndMnemonic=\u4FDD\u5B58(&S) FileChooser.openButton.textAndMnemonic=\u6253\u5F00(&O) ------------------------------------------ The fix removes the unnecessary mnemonics for the FileChooser Open, Save and Cancel buttons.
