Add visual feedback for abstract/class scope members in properties dialog
Submitted by Rob Campbell
In UML notation, an abstract class or operation is signified by italicizing it. An operation or attribute with class scope is signified by underlining it. Dia displays these items correctly in a diagram. But in the property dialog of a class, for example, you can only tell if a member is one of these special cases by selecting it in the list and then inspecting the corresponding check boxes. This can be tedious, especially when creating or modifying several items. Did I already make that change? Did I change the correct one?
It would be helpful if entries in these lists were also italicized or underlined, as appropriate. It would be immediately obvious which items were abstract and which were class scope.
