Sorry in advance for the long post with probably excessive details.
Is this happening to you in Linux? If not, you can pretty safely
ignore the rest of this e-mail. I can't seem to find a resizable
GenericObjectEditor on either Windows or OS X, but some Linux window
managers will allow resizing of any window. I believe I encountered a
similar problem previously, although at the time I blamed it on my
somewhat eccentric choice of window manager, xmonad. Doing some
extremely limited testing with OpenJDK IcedTea6 1.11.1 and Weka 3.6.6
in a VNC session, both twm 1.0.7 and Gnome 3.2.2 have
GenericObjectEditors increasing in sizes upon subsequent openings, but
they seem to stop increasing after reaching a certain size. That
said, with twm the placement of the second opened editor with a
resolution of 1024x768 (my VNC's default) makes interaction
impossible, but increasing the VNC server resolution "fixes" this.
Windows 7 (Java 1.6.0_31-b05 with Weka 3.7.5) and OS X 10.6 (Java
1.6.0_29-b11-402-10M3527 with Weka 3.6.2 and 3.7.1) are behaving as
In summary, if you're running Linux and have some manner of control
over your VNC server, a "not very satisfying" solution should be to
try spawning with a slightly larger geometry (1280x1024 was large
enough for me to contain even the largest GenericObjectEditor I saw in
testing) or with a different window manager. Speculatively, if you're
running with OpenJDK, it's possible switching to an Oracle-provided
JRE would help (completely untested shot in the dark). Hope that
helps, at least until a better solution comes along.
