Here are instructions I wish I had been able to find this morning. Hope it helps:
Required downloads: GWT, GWT Designer, GWT-EXT (http://gwt-ext.com/download/
) , and ext-js (http://yogurtearl.com/ext-2.0.2.zip
I unpacked my folders in locations like this:
Assuming you don't already have an active project, create a GWT Designer project (With Hello World code) with module called something like “ModuleName”There are three steps necessary
to make the gwt-ext widgets show up in the “Design” menu of your GWTDesigner-based project: 1.Within the project, add a reference to the gwt-ext.jar file.
Right-click “Referenced Libraries” within your new project, choose “configure build path” - “add an external jar”, browse to jar location (like usr/local/gwtext2.0.5/ and find the gwt-ext.jar and click ok.2.Add the ext code as a reference.
Within the project, /src/com.mycompany.project/public/
1.add a new folder called 'js.'
2.Open the folder and then choose Import – “file system.”
3.Browse to the location of the ext-2.02 files (like usr/local/ext-2.0.2) and select all.
3.Modify the ModuleName.gwt.xml file
located in /src/com.mycompany.project/public/ to ensure that the appropriate files are included.
<!-- Inherit the GWTExt Toolkit library configuration. -->
<stylesheet src="js/resources/css/ext-all.css" />
<script src="js/adapter/ext/ext-base.js" />
<script src="js/ext-all.js" />
Reload your ModuleName.java file and the gwt-ext module should appear under the list of palettes in the “Design” view of the page.
A functional example of a project with the everything set up is available from Instantiations at: download/file.php?id=38
