Improve Usability of "Select Event for Message" Dialog

Extend the „Select Event for Message“ dialog with an additional option: “Show only connected ports”

When this option is enabled:
1. Hide all ports from the “From Port” list, that are not already connected to one port of the “To Port” list (and vice versa)
2. As soon as a user selects a port from the “From Port” list hide all ports in the “To Port” list, that are not connected to that selected port (and vice versa)
3. When at any time one or both of the lists only contain a single port, automatically select that port / those ports.

Also add a global preference to configure that this new option can be set to enabled as default whenever a new message is created.
