When I make changes on some Swing component every time Swing designer shows a window which reflects those changes and then those changes are posted to form in eclipse desing window. This window slows down creation of Swing forms because with every form change I waste a couple seconds while swing designer updates those changes. It is showed even if I change variable name of swing component. Can I tell Swing designer to stop showing this window?

Where on the screen does the window appear (upper-left corner, lower-right corner, somewhere else)? I'm not seeing what you are describing on my Linux system (one of the problems though is that various Linux distributions often work quite differently).Anonymous wrote:I'm using Eclipse 3.0 for Linux.

The underlying problem is due to limitations in Eclipse/Linux that aren't present in Eclipse/Windows. Under Windows, the widget graphics can be created off screen. This does not work under Linux, so the preview graphics need to be created on the main display.

After working about 20 minutes with the designer it slows down - and after clicking a component I have to wait 20 (twenty!!) seconds to se the component is choses, and to see it's properties. After changing a property (or moving a component) I wait up to 30 (thirty!) seconds so that I can work. It's horror !! When I restart Eclipse I have another 20 minutes of normal work, but every change done to a component slows down the Designer. Also - wersion 2.1.0 after some operations had 1.2 GB of memory taken by the javaw process. When I use copy/paste its even worse - I have to restart Eclipse sooner. So - my work looks like this - draw about 5 components, change their properties and restart eclipse.
