org.openide.explorer.VisualizerNode.prefetchCountExportedPrivate

Setting this property to integer number controls prefetching of nodes when VisualizerChildren are constructed (prefetchCount = 0 disables prefetching). The prefetching should eliminate "bounce" effect (see #144718) in lazy implementation which is caused by the fact that there exist keys without nodes. In such case "dummy" nodes are created and remove event is fired. This undesirable effect is eliminated by prefetching selected number of nodes so "dummy" nodes are detected and removed in advance before any visualization occurs.

netbeans.dnd.enabledExportedPrivate

Checks by Drag & Drop support for views. True is regard as default (no matter what jdk's version). False value disallows Drag & Drop in all views.

customDeleteExportedUnder Development

Nodes returing Boolean.TRUE from getValue("customDelete") are assumed to provide their own confirmation dialog for delete action and explorer will not show default one when they are deleted.

slowRenameExportedUnder Development

Nodes returing Boolean.TRUE from getValue("slowRename") are expected to have potentially slow implemenation of setName. Explorer views rather process in-place rename in background for such nodes.
