I can not find GroupLayout in the Layouts (SWT) in the palette. I have indigo 3.7 with the corresponding Windows Builder complete installation.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

When WindowBuilder became an Eclipse.org project in 2010, the SWT version of GroupLayout was removed due to IP issues. The supporting code was moved to an Eclipse Labs project...

http://svn.codespot.com/a/eclipselabs.org/windowbuilder-extras/trunk/

Note that there are two WB builds out there... the one at Eclipse.org that does not include SWT GroupLayout and a second build maintained by Google that does...

Personally, I think GroupLayout is pretty nasty so I don't recommend it in any case (pretty much write-only and very fragile). SWT GridLayout is far superior for SWT/RCP work and can do pretty much anything you could ever want.

Thanks Eric

BTW, do you still support customizers? When I right click on a Java component, I do not see the 'Customize' option. I believe it was there in your old releases?

Thank You.

Yes. If the component has a customizer, that option should be available.

Yes, now I see that they are available. I was missing a special instantiations class. I also filed 2 problems in the bug tracker: They have to do with WB and classloader not going through every attached jar in the project to find required classes. The second one is with a property editor now opening and throwing a null pointer exception.

Thanks for you help

Thank you for the bug reports, but it is very important that you provide complete, self-contained examples with each report. We need to be able to reproduce the problems in order to help you.

Sure thing. I will upload the plugins, projects, etc with the instructions, they tend to be a bit big ~60Megs, so i may give you a link to download from.

Thanks
