Designer 5.1.0: Visual inheritance broken

Postby colinzhao » Fri Jul 18, 2008 1:59 pm

Designer 5.1.0 (7/17/2008 build)
GWT 1.5.
Java 1.6
Windows XP

The inherated widgets do not show up in the design view of the subclass composites, if the base composite is abstract, like the following example:

Code: Select all
abstract public class TestComposite extends Composite {   

   private VerticalPanel layoutPanel;
   public TestComposite() {

      layoutPanel = new VerticalPanel();

   public void displayContent(Composite content) {}
   public VerticalPanel getLayoutPanel() {
      return layoutPanel;

It works if I remove the abstract key word.
