Hello,

I was wondering what part of a custom component will WB render ?
For instance :
- I created a custom FieldEditor. Basically a label with a Text next to it, wrapped inside a composite.
- I added to the palette,

When dragging it to my design view, only the "wrapper" composite is visible. When running the application, my fully customized component is renderer.
What are the dev guidelines for my component to be rendered nicely ?

Thanks

The widget should render fully when invoked via the default constructor (just like any other widget).

Ok, I found the issue.

I was simply adding a label in the constructor (which matches with your advice Eric) but I simply forget ot add a label.pack() to compute the size of it Smile
You definitely help me, by showing me it was as simple as I expected

Thanks
