As well as creating your composite, Jigloo will copy the jar and native libraries into your project. It copies all the native libraries, even though you generally will. CloudGarden’s tutorial on creating Java Swing GUI’s with Jigloo If a GUI class does not not open using Jigloo, i.e. you can only see the code and not the. Is there somewhere a Jigloo () tutorial for. SWT and Eclipse out there? The dokumentation is quite fine but I’d like.

If you wish to set a layout manager for a composite, select it from the “layout” palette and then click on the element you wish to apply it to, or right-click on the element and use the “Set Layout” options. Click on the “Open Jigloo preferences editor” button in the toolbar to the left jifloo the Jigloo editor. Then enter a name and initial text and an icon image if you like in tutoriwl dialog that will appear.
You can do this by simply right-clicking on a property name and choosing the category you want from the list see below.
Add a Button and CLabel as shown, and anchor them so the label stretches both ways and the button is anchored to the bottom-right. You can also drag it’s bottom edge to make it the same height as the goButton. Now, use the property editor to set the CLabel’s alignment to CENTER Since we are in the property editor, we should take a moment to look at property “categories” which organise properties into “Basic”, “Expert”, “Hidden” and any other category you might want to create.
Edit the code to add dialogShell. Now hit “OK” and close and re-open the Jigloo editor you need to do this to change to tabbed panels.
You can test whether your form behaves as expected when it is resized by clicking the “Preview” button in the outline view.

The composite is created initially with a FormLayout manager, which allows you to position elements absolutely and jiglo on the form and automatically resizes them as the form changes shape. Now we’ve got a Jigloo editor open, let’s change how it looks. We will add code to the main composite’s aboutButton event handler, so go back to the main composite and add a SelectionListener.
For instance, if you scroll down a bit in the property list you’ll see the “Expert” category, and a property “backgroundImage”. Choose “Appearance and Behaviour” and then “Tabbed panels”. However, other migloo are useful for certain purposes – for example GridLayout is very useful for situations where your elements are layed out in a grid, with elements spanning multiple rows or columns.

You may need to re-adjust the position of the button after it is added to the form – Jigloo does a better job once it knows exactly how big the button is.
You may want to use this property a lot and so move it to the “Basic” category. First click on the “Button” icon in the “Controls” palette and “drop” the button in tutroial top-right corner of the form, using the alignment lines.
This is useful when you jigpoo to maximize your design area, but “Split-pane” can be useful if you want to see immediately the connection between code and GUI.

The Eclipse preferences window appears with Jigloo selected. A quick way to run the main method of the class you just created is to click the “Run” button in the Outline view. Now add a “Status” CLabel to the bottom left of the form, an “About” Button called surprise aboutButton to the bottom-right of the form, a CLabel called statusLabel stretched along the bottom edge between the other label and the aboutButton, and then jjgloo a Browser control in the center of the form.
Now close the alignment helper and make the main form bigger because we will add more controls – notice that jiglo addressCombo gets wider. It copies all the native libraries, even though you generally will not need them all, but you never know Add event code to main composite. But how will the dialog appear in the first place? If you like, use a “handlerMethod” instead of “inline” this time. Then add a CCombo control to the top left of the form, call it addressCombo with initial value “www.
Anchor all controls so tutorail the browser control expands in both directions and the statusLabel expands horizontally.
Now the addressCombo’s top, left and right edges are anchored fixed distances from the top, left and right edges of the form and it will expand horizontally if the form is resized.
And here it is running You are all done! Then scroll down and open the “SelectionListener” node, and set “widgetSelected” to ttuorial Jigloo will flip to the source code editor, at the place where the widgetSelected event handler has been inserted.
Now click on the alignment button at the top-right of the addressCombo – an “alignment helper” should pop up see image Click on the right tutorisl button till the anchors look the same as in the image above. Now, just to demonstrate the “Surround by” feature, right-click on the label and choose “Surround by container Then add the following code to the event handler: Let’s add a “GO” button to the top right of the tuotrial.
Then select the goButton and anchor it as shown in the image below, so that it stays fixed in the top right corner of the form and does not resize as the form is resized.
