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 like, use a “handlerMethod” instead of “inline” this time. Then select the goButton and jiglooo 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. This is useful when you want to maximize your design area, but “Split-pane” can be useful if you want to see immediately the connection between code and GUI.

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 add a Browser control in the center of the form.

Then add a CCombo control to the top left of the form, call it addressCombo with initial value “www.

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 anchor button till the anchors look the same as in the image above. Now we’ve got a Jigloo editor open, let’s change how it looks.

Then enter a name and initial text and an icon image if you like in the dialog that will appear.

First click on the “Button” icon in the “Controls” palette and “drop” the button in the top-right corner of the form, using the alignment lines. Edit the code to add dialogShell. A quick way to run the main method of the class you just created is to click the “Run” button in the Outline view. Then add the following code to the event handler: Now close the alignment helper and make the main form bigger because we will add more controls – notice that the addressCombo gets wider.

The Eclipse preferences window appears jugloo Jigloo selected. Anchor all controls so that the browser control expands in both directions and the statusLabel expands horizontally. However, other layouts 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.

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. Add event code to main composite. You can also drag it’s bottom edge to make it the same height as the goButton. But how will the dialog appear in the first place? Jigoo may want to use this property a lot and so move it to the “Basic” category.

You are all done! We tutogial add code to the main composite’s aboutButton event handler, so go back to the main composite and add a SelectionListener.

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. It copies all the native libraries, even though you generally will not need them all, but you never know Let’s add a “GO” button to the top right of the form.

You can test whether your form behaves as expected when it is resized by clicking the “Preview” button in the outline view.


And here it is running Choose “Appearance and Behaviour” and then “Tabbed panels”. Add a Tutorrial and CLabel as shown, and anchor them so the label stretches both ways and the button is anchored to the bottom-right.

You can do this by simply right-clicking on a property name and choosing the category you want from the list see below. 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.

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.

kigloo For instance, if you scroll down a bit in the property list you’ll see the “Expert” category, and a property “backgroundImage”.

Then scroll down and open the “SelectionListener” node, and set “widgetSelected” to “inline” Jigloo will flip to the source code editor, at the place where the widgetSelected event handler has been inserted. Click on the “Open Jigloo preferences editor” button in the toolbar to the left of the Jigloo editor.

Now hit “OK” and close and re-open the Jigloo editor you need to do this to change to tabbed panels. Now, just to demonstrate the “Surround tutoriak feature, right-click on the label and choose “Surround by container The composite is created initially with a FormLayout manager, which allows you to position elements absolutely and relatively on the form and automatically resizes them as the form changes shape.
