Have you set up your project to use Swing data binding? The Bindings tab won't appear unless you do that first.

Thank you I have solved this thread, gettig from
developers.google.com/java-dev-tools/wbpro/features/swing/data_binding/
Note: In order to use Swing Data Binding (JSR 295), you must first add the Swing Data Binding jar (e.g., beansbinding-1.2.1.jar) to your classpath.


regards

***NOTE***
Because these forums were so "timely" in displaying my post--approximately 47 hours, 59 minutes, and 45 seconds slower than the average forum--the question I pose here is no longer quite as relevant. I'm still interested in what's going on with my eclipse, but I just thought I'd let any potential answer-ers know that I won't be lurking this thread to respond instantaneously.
***END NOTE***

Hi, I am having the same problem with my WindowBuilder Editor not displaying a "Binding" tab. However I am extremely new to Eclipse (4 days ago) and I do not know how to find jars or add to classpath or any of the things that I have seen recommended here and in other forums.

I am using Eclipse 4.2.0 and I think I have WindowBuilder 1.5.2r42 (not sure what this means, but it's listed in my Installed Software). I downloaded the Java EE package, then added the CDT and WindowBuilder features listed in the left column here: http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/compare.php

I have a feeling that I have a very simple fix but have been dancing around the solution without ever getting closer to it. Here is a detailed account of everything I have done to try to fix my problem:

I tried: Help -> Install New Software -> All Available Sites. I have installed all items from "Swing Designer," "SWT Designer," and "WindowBuilder Engine (Required)."

I right-clicked on Project Explorer -> Import -> Plug-in Development -> Plug-ins and Fragments. I chose these three items: "Import From The active target platform," "Select from all plug-ins and fragments found at the specified location," and "Import as projects with source folders." Then I searched for all plug-ins and fragments with the string "bind" in them. I added the following plug-ins:

org.eclipse.core.databinding
org.eclipse.core.databinding.beans
org.eclipse.core.databinding.observable
org.eclipse.core.databinding.property
org.eclipse.jface.databinding

and added the plug-ins that the "Required Plug-ins" button suggested (total of 12). I ended up with all of these projects in my project explorer.

I then went to the project I am attempting to use as a tutorial (I call it HelloWorldWindowBuilder), and right-clicked on its "src" file -> Build Path -> Configure Build Path. I clicked "Java Build Path" on the left column, then the Libraries tab, then clicked "Add JARs" and added the jars from every project I had just Imported.

I have made sure to re-start Eclipse every time it tells me to, as well as re-starting it several more times after doing all of this. None of what I have done has made any difference aside from filling up my Project Explorer. I can open my class with WindowBuilderEditor but it still only has Source and Design tabs.

---------------------

In case it is relevant, my ultimate goal is to make a GUI for a console Java Project for an agent-based model of disease spread that I have already written and debugged (which, thanks to Eclipse being ridiculously awesome, took me all of two days to program, holy crap I love this environment 8D ). I just want to be able to let the user see the people walking around, show them a window that keeps track of how many sick/healthy people there are and how much time has passed, and give them a menu with options to interact with the model (changing the number of people, etc.).
