Hi all,

Did anyone try to use VE and jgoodies and/or swinglabs classes ?

Thanks :)

I do some searches on the net. The real question is maybe : what about
the "org.jdesktop.layout.GroupLayout" support in VE ?

I mean, i try to import some code from Netbeans. This code was designed
with matisse which use this layout.
When i open it in VE, Eclipse launches a remote JVM, starts to draw the
panel (my code) and crash (again ;-p). But i just can see that the
organisation of the panel is not good at all. All components are simply
presented from left to rigth.

Any ideas ?

The VE does not provide any support for GroupLayout. Currently the VE
only supports the layouts included with Java (except SpringLayout), and
SWT (except FormLayout). There are enhancement requests open to support
SWT and JGoodies FormLayouts
(https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=77683) but it's unlikely
that the VE team will have time to address these anytime soon - so work
on these items will likely have to come from the Open Source Community.
If you'd like to support GroupLayout as well, a contribution of code
would be greatly welcomed :)

Why not... I think about it.
I had already done some small plugins too add those libraries
(swinglabs, groupbag layout and jgoodies) into the build path. you know
with the "Add library..." button. It works.

The next step should be to contribute into the palette.
But before going further, i try to see the behavior of VE with those
libraries. That's why i created my little project imported from
netbeans; I had all needed jars in my build path. I think there is a pb
with groupbag layout since components like JXTitledPanel, JXTreeTable
are well drawn but badly organised.

i'll try to isolate this evening. i'll replace layout with jfc ones.

thanks for you reply Jeff

I do some code manipulations :
i removed all grouplayouts (replace it by borderlayout or gridbaglayout),
that looks very important, or else the components are putted side by
side instead of being nested :/
so long grouplayout. I don't need it
i replaced numbers of "getContentPane().add()" by some basic "add()".

VE works fine with swinglabs components. I join a sreenshot (i use
Shadowborder, jxtitlepane, jxcollapsiblepane, jxtaskpane, jxtreetable,
etc...). All of that stuff works great. As those components are
JavaBeans, the properties view is well feed. Good news.

So here we are for now :)

If i do the ve extension. i would need to add the components into the
palette first. Then add some more specialized properties editors... Am i
rigth ?

that's sounds feasible.
