A GWT designer created code question ...

Postby bpetro » Fri Jun 12, 2009 12:01 pm

This is probably a dumb question but I don't see any documentation right off on the GWT site... nor anywhere else ... of course its kinda hard to do searching on "{" and searching the words braces and brackets doesn't help so I'm stuck w/o knowing where else to look. SO ...

What is the purpose of and the logic behind breaking methods up into sections with opening and closing curly braces " { } "??
One thing I notice is that when creating a DockPanel you appear to "re-use" generic widget names as shown below. I notice that if I leave out the "curly brace sectioning" then the compiler (or eclipse) starts complaining about the name being redeclared ... can you give a quick review of the use and logic behind this?

Code: Select all
   HorizontalPanel horizontalPanel = new HorizontalPanel();
   horizontalPanel.setSize("100%", "60");
   dockPanel.add(horizontalPanel, DockPanel.NORTH);
   HorizontalPanel horizontalPanel = new HorizontalPanel();
   horizontalPanel .setSize("100%", "40");
   dockPanel.add(horizontalPanel, DockPanel.SOUTH);

Nested block style is just one of the common code generation styles that GWT Designer supports.

It supports many other styles as well. Please see the docs.
