Hi Dal,

lazy initializing means to create the instance first in the getter accessor. 
This looks in Smalltalk like follows:

	^ taskEditor ifNil: [taskEditor := StTaskEditor new]

Best regards,

In addition, it should be lazy initialized with an empty instance ofStTaskEditor. Of course, we could create a new instance for every edit request and thus get rid of the variable, but this would be an unnecessary overhead of object creation.
