Yes, thats how I did it - use the source view, but its not what - want because of the delay in toggling back and forth between source and design views, as when it goes back to design, it realises something has changed and rebuilds.. What I want when I edit a property is a straightforward editor - if I want plain text, then I can put it in quotes. How do I get this?
This question is really about MVC interpretation - I need my view (part of which is a textfield) to be able to read information from my model, through it's get... methods. How can I tell the tool to do this? My model is completely separate from its Human interface - it can be called by other programs, command line and now GUI, so the model can't change as such. Can I achieve this through bindings? I've tried, but I don't have any beans - I just have getter and setter methods.
