Creating Wizards with SWT [message #465950] Mon, 26 December 2005 02:21 Go to next message

Hello,

I don't like the framework provided by JFace to develop wizards. I decided
to write one from scratch with SWT. I have done so before in Swing with
relative ease. I am almost done. My question is : how do I replace one
composite with another one? In Swing I used to switch panels in the wizard
when the user would click back/next buttons with the following code
snippet:

dataJPanel.setVisible(false);
dataJPanel = getNextJPanel();
dataJPanel.setVisible(true);

When I atempt to do this in SWT, it doesn't work at all. I know SWT works
much differently then Swing. I have been able to figure out most of the
other things myself, but I am stuck on this one. Can anyone help or
suggest a tutorial? And again, I would like to try to do this without
JFace.

Thanks,
Harps

this sounds like a good application for a StackLayout

I was able to get it to work last night, but I needed to add a "link",
like a linked list. BUt I think I am going to opt for the StackLayout
after a little bit of research. Thanks so much for the help. You answered
my question. Much appreciated!

Cheers,
Harps
