Hi.

As a hobby project I am working a tool that can be used to create mods for a certain game environment. I was thinking of doing this in C# but am now thinking about doing it as a plugin.

It seems the biggest issue the software users have is layout out various game controls (image, text, rectangles, etc) within frames. This is done manually by writing XML-based window descriptions and then loading them into the game environment and 'seeing if it looks right'.

Would it be possible to write an Eclipse plugin that can be used to visually layout the controls (even if they are just layered rectangles) and then have the plugin spit out appropriate XML?

Maybe another idea is to use existing graphical designer to create a Java swing UI or something and then transform the java code to XML.

Steve
