Eric Clayberg wrote:The Designer generates an AST node tree of the entire method - both generated and user written portions. It is designed to maintain user written code whenever possible. If it was working in 1.2.0 and not in the 1.2.1 beta, that is a regression (bug) that we need to fix. The parsing engine underwent a great deal of work in this release to prepare it for handling a much wider range of input and output formats (not just the Designer "block" style). That work is not quite finished which is on one of the reasons 1.2.1 is still in beta.

rgallen wrote:The only issue I have with FormLayout is I don't completely understand how to control attachment to other widgets. I have been able to successfully attach buttons to other widgets, but only at create time (i.e. when dropping the button near the target widget). I would like to have some way to control attachment to other widgets after creation (there may be, I just haven't found it yet). There is the icon that suggests the ability to do this, but I have'nt been able to get it to do anything yet.
