I'm new to developing in Java, and using Eclipse Juno having just installed it this week. Eclipse runs from a folder on my Win 7 desktop. I've installed WindowBuilder via the Help Menu. Help > Install New Software; searched for WindowBuilder; selected the 4 to 5 related WindowBuilder packages and installed them. |
After the installation I did not see a WindowBuilder BUTTON, for me to use to open and begin creating in a WYSIWYG interface... so I began by creating a project, which led to a Design Tab being visible.
I am now unable to open WindowBuilder or to reopen the project that I created.
My Windows user is called Instance, and my Eclipse workspace is the default of:
My Java project is at:
At that time that I had the Eclipse application open I was able to select the Design Tab ... and open the WindowBuilder designer with the widgets. Then at the end of the day, I closed the Eclipse application to SEE how I was going to open the application the following day to work on it, and for the life of me I am unable to open WindowBuilder or locate the Design Tab. To the best of my knowledge I have followed all of the instructions that I can find regarding this issue and am unable to get the Designer to reopen.
There should be a button at the top of the application that allows you to toggle between "Design View," "Source View," and "Structure View."
Any clue as to how to get back to WindowBuilder from where I am at? I have a project, and can "compile the java application" and run it to see the application created in the WindowBuilder but am unable to open the WYSIWYG Design interface again.
