Can't choose composite

Postby happyRunner » Fri Feb 01, 2008 5:41 am


I use Windowbuilder with RSA for about 1,5 Years now and never had this problem. But recently I can't choose a composite anymore to drop it into my designer. Even when I try to put it in manually the designer ignores it. Is there any log file windowbuilder writes so that I can eventually find the problem? Or has anyone experienced this problem and solved it?

The most likely problem is that the Composite isn't compiled (no .class file) or is throwning some exception on instantiation.

Your Eclipse ".log" file should indicate what the problem is.
