Having a problem with VE/Eclipse [message #145253] Tue, 08 July 2008 12:56 Go to next message

Hello.

I am new to Eclipse and fairly new to Java as well. Last quarter at
college I used Textpad to write Java. This quarter we are allowed to use
any IDE and someone suggested Eclipse. So far I like it, but what I wanted
most, was VE, because layout managers were annoying :P

Anyway, I'm not sure if this is even the right place to ask for help, I am
having a problem with VE.

I made a GUI, it compiled and ran without errors. Now I left the program
and came back to it, and none of the form elements that I put in the
window are displaying in the editor. When I compile and run it however,
the textboxes and buttons etc are all there like they are supposed to be.

If I need to, I would post all my source code, but to try and prevent
plagiarism I don't want to do that just yet. I do have a screenshot of the
message and what everything looks like. The screenshot URL is below:

If you look at the bottom of the screenshot there is a message. Thats the
only thing I have to go on, and as you can see, the window isn't showing
anything. The Java Beans don't show the tree menu with my form elements
either.

Thanks for any help. If this is the wrong place to ask, I'd appreciate it
if I was pointed in the right direction.

Thanks
- Raj

Did you make direct changes to the generated code? VE needs to parse
the generated source in order to rebuild the visual representation.
Any changes you make to the generated code have to remain stylistically
consistent with the generated source. Looks like you made a change
near getJContentPane() that is now beyond what the VE parser can
understand.
