I am using VE to create a fairly simple application.

I have a Main frame extending from JFrame. One of the menu item action event I am showing up an open dialog using JFileChooser.

Now in the design view I am able to see the open dialog!! Not really sure why this is coming up. Does this always come.? I guess. Because I added an 'About' dialog to my application which gets instantiated when the menu item help -> About is clicked; even this is showing up in the main frame design view.

I like to know is there a way to avoid these things coming up? It really looks odd.

I have also sent an email to mailto:ve-dev-owner@eclipse.org. Thought of starting a discussion also on this.

I have attached a screen shot for reference.

Thank You

Hi,

I think there is a misunderstanding here. There is no "Design View"
outside of the editor itself. If you are talking about seeing the views
on the Windows's task bar, well, those are supposed to be hidden. Some
people install windows managers that show all windows, even those that
were explicitly hidden!

If instead you are talking about them showing up on the white design
surface within the VE itself along side the main window, then that is
correct. They must show up there or you would not be able to customize them.
