Existing VE source and new Workspace NO VE palette nor Designer pane displaying [message #143210] Thu, 29 November 2007 10:39 Go to next message

A new developer in our company is configuring his computer for development,
has installed Eclipse v3.2, along with the VE 1.2 and associated components
(ie EMF, GEF). He can design/write new classes without trouble. However,
pre-existing visual classes source code is loaded onto his computer, and
'linked' into his workspace, he can run the classes without trouble;
however, the VE does NOT display the palette nor the designer window...only
the source code edit window.

Assuming all software/plugin versions are the same, ie everything is v3.2
using VE v1.2; what is the correct process for taking previously developed
visual classes on one computer, and moving those source files to another
developer's computer, and have Eclipse & VE work with the moved code
correctly?

The problem we are having now is if Developer A receives code from Developer
B; developer A's Eclipse/VE editor doesn't display the UI palette nor the
designer window, only the source code edit window.

Use Open With->Visual Editor.

Eclipse remembers the last editor that was used to open the class. By
default it will be the standard java editor. So if you had not yet
opened it with the VE it will be the java editor.
