Hi,

I have a problem, I want to add child in parent constructor but it don't work!

For example (in swing),

In my main I have,
MyPanel panel = new MyPanel();


And MyPanel contains some composite like,
public MyPanel() {
   textField = new JTextField();
   add(textField);
   textField.setColumns(10);
}


If child is not in constructor (so just after line, MyPanel panel = new MyPanel(); for example) it works but not if I put child in my contructor!

Thanks to your help

Works fine for me.

I'm not sure what you mean by "it don't work". Please be specific.

For example, if I use wizard "Application Window" in Swing designer:
I have the code:
private void initialize() {
		frame = new JFrame();
		frame.setBounds(100, 100, 450, 300);
		frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
		frame.getContentPane().setLayout(null);
		
		JPanel panel = new JPanel();
		panel.setBounds(21, 11, 373, 226);
		frame.getContentPane().add(panel);
		panel.setLayout(null);
		
		JButton btnNewButton = new JButton("New button");
		btnNewButton.setBounds(124, 107, 89, 23);
		panel.add(btnNewButton);
	}


But if I want to customize my panel and I add child in constructor like:
private void initialize() {
		frame = new JFrame();
		frame.setBounds(100, 100, 450, 300);
		frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
		frame.getContentPane().setLayout(null);
		
		MyPanel panel = new MyPanel();
		panel.setBounds(10, 11, 270, 194);
		frame.getContentPane().add(panel);
		panel.setLayout(null);		
	}

And MyPanel constructor (who extends JPanel):
public MyPanel(){
		super();
		JButton btnNewButton = new JButton("New button");
		btnNewButton.setBounds(89, 60, 89, 23);
		add(btnNewButton);
	}

In designer my button does not appear on tree and I can not select it!

Thanks to your answer Wink

If it's not implemented in original toolkits, have you any idea on how can I proced for my toolkit?

For example, how can I proced to parse and create JavaInfo in all my project? Not only in main page..

Everything is working as expected. That button should not appear in the tree of the App Window as it is a component private to MyPanel (doing so would require breaking encapsulation which is not allowed). It should only show up in the tree of MyPanel.
