When I compile the javadoc for some ComboBox classes there is a lot of garbage about method inherited from JComboBox, JComponent, Container ... and so on. Is there a way to limit this information to the strict necessary ones, for example the direct parent class, or does standard javadoc wants all about all this.
Thxs, Charles

If I was reading your Javadoc, I want to see all that is inherited. It is important because it is a method that I can call on your class. So I want to see all the methods that are available to me. That is what makes Javadoc so great. I might be looking for a way to enable or disable a JTextField. So by the inherited methods, I can find what I am looking for and also see the Docs on that method, without inheritence I would assume that enabling and disabling a JTextField is not allowed.
