Visual Editor for SWT released yet? [message #447257] Fri, 10 December 2004 19:41 Go to next message

Has the Eclipse Visual Editor for SWT been officially released yet?

I can only use Swing components via the Visual Editor which was installed
via the HELP->SOFTWARE UPDATES->FIND AND INSTALL menu. The swt.jar has
been added to my project.

According to eclipse.org/swt:

"The SWT component contains the extensions to the Java core component. It
provides the editing functions that are specific to the SWT classes. (At
this time this component does not yet exist)."

The downloadable daily build of the Visual Editor has SWT support?

Should I be concerned about using the Visual Editor with SWT for a major
project?

Thanks,

Yes. VE 1.0 offers support for SWT.

Try not adding swt.jar. Instead add the SWT library:
Project Properties -> Java Build Path -> Add Library...
There you should be able to select SWT or similar if you have a Visual
Editor Project.

Yes. You could download 1.02 manually.

Well, I wouldn't use it, but I never liked GUI builder tools. I need
control over the code so I do it all by hand. But it certainly is usable
and you could use it within a project.

I'm using it for a project. It's a great start, although quite resource
intensive.

Here's fully instruction on getting it to work:

Yes. However, if you need a GUI builder with support for *all* SWT widgets
and layout managers, *all* JFace viewers, RCP/Plugin types like view parts,
wizard pages, preference pages, etc. as well as full support for specialized
libraries like preference page field editors and the new Forms API, you
should take a look at SWT Designer...
