Hi everyone,

I've just installed the Visual Editor on Eclipse 3.2 using automated
updates at the Callisto Discovery Site. I'm interested in developing SWT
applications, however, the Palette only shows Swing and AWT components.
Also, when I open an existing SWT class, it just shows a blank screen.

How can I fix this?

Thanks,
Nicolas

That means the swt container is not yet setup in the classpath of your
project. To do so, please call the wizard to create a type of SWT. The
container will be added automatically.

project (I can compile my program without any problems) if that's what
you mean. And what do you mean when you say "call the wizard to create a
type of SWT"? What wizard are you talking about? Where do I access it?

Also, I don't have the option to create a new visual class in the
File->New menu. I looked in my .metadata folder but I don't even have a
..log file.

Thank you very much for your help!

The swt.jar is not enough. The container I said is jar container, which
packages a group of the jars. You can find a JDK container when you create a
Java project.

To call wizard, you right-select a package in package explorer, and then
click on the context menu New->Others, you should have a Visual class if
your VE is installed correctly.
