Hello community,

I am beginner in Eclipse, but I'm very enthusiastic about java/eclipse/swt/windowbuilder.

I have a problem when trying to include FieldEditors in my Palette.
I open Palette Manager, check FieldEditors, press OK.
But it doesn't appear in the Palette.
When I reopen Palette Manager again, FieldEditors is unchecked (I attached image)

If this info means something : I can make it form code
fileFldEditor = new FileFieldEditor(...

ant it appears correctly, as far as I can see.

I guess it's something trivial, but I can't figure it out.

Thanks in advance

Component on palette ins displayed only if its Class in present in ClassLoder.
So, if you create just SWT application, without Eclipse UI plugins, you don't have them.

Create Eclipse plug-in instead, and say that you want contribute to UI, when wizard will ask you.

Also keep in mind that the Field Editor palette will only appear, if you are editing a Field Editor Preference Page.

Thanks for replies.

Seems like I can't make it work, I'll read more documentation on setting up a projects tonight,
if I still have a problem, I'll write tomorrow.

You should create an Eclipse RCP or plugin project and then create a new a Field Editor Preference Page. Only then will you see the Field Editor palette (palette categories are context sensitive and Field Editors have a very limited use).

Thanks for the reply.

I've tried what Eric said but I can't make it appear. I'm probably making some beginner mistake, but I can't figure it out.
I have to leave Eclipse learning for a while, maybe when I come back I'll succeed from the 1st attempt.
If not, maybe I'll upload images or video on what I'm doing.

Anyway, thank you for your efforts to help me, I appreciate it.

A test case and a screen shot of what you are seeing would be useful here.
