Not realizing this one existed, I asked this question on a more generic forum:|
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ORIGINAL QUESTION ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I installed the WindowBuilder plugin into the most recent version of Eclipse (EE and Reports edition).
However, in Eclipse's Java perspective, when I select Windows | Show View | Palette, and even Windows |
Show View | Other | WindowBuilder | Palette, the palette pane (while visible) has nothing [i,o]n it.
Do I have to do something else to get the Palette to populate with widgets/controls?
</ End of Original Question
...and got this answer:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ANSWER ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What you are seeing is the expected behavior. Until you actually edit a UI class using WindowBuilder, those
views will be empty.
Also, this is not the correct place to ask WindowBuilder questions. Please use the WindowBuilder forum
</ End of Answer
So, I'm asking now: How do I "edit a UI class using WindowBuilder"?
I have an existing project that creates the GUI (buttons, edit boxes, etc.) in code, but I'd like to have the ability to move these controls/widgets around at design-time by dragging them so that my app is just plain instead of being 9X uglier than a bag of butts.
