Grid component not displayed in Eclipse-GWT Designer plugin

Postby wilsonhew » Sun Feb 27, 2011 7:38 am


I am a new user to GWT and GXT. I have installed below plugins into Eclipse EE Helios 3.6 32-bit

- Google Plugin for Eclipse 3.6 (
- Google App Engine Java SDK 1.4.2 (
- Google Web Toolkit SDK 2.2.0 (
- Windows Builder Engine 0.9.0 (
- GWT Designer 2.2.0 into Eclipse 3.6 (

Beside these, I have installed JDK1.6.0_24 32-bit. All of these are run in Windows 7 64-bit Professional.

I am able to create a new Web Application Project successfully and able to add the EXT GWT (GXT 2.2.1) through eclipse from menu Google Web Toolkit -> Configure for using EXT GWT (GXT) into GWT Designer palette. All the GXT components are shown nicely.

The root panel, layout, and content panel are created on the screen. However, I am not able to create a Grid components (eg Grid, Editor Grid, EditorTree Grid). In fact, the grid component created on the panel is a small rectangle. I won't able to resize it no matter do it in code or properties.

All the same plugins and installations are applied into another machine which using Windows XP Professional, it cannot be created and running successfully. When the source files transferred to Windows 7, it is not even can compile!

In addition, another machine which is also Windows XP Professional and installed all the plugins is same to my Windows 7. It won't able to create the Grid component.

Anyone knows how to solve this problem. Urgent.

This is a GXT issue.

GXT 2.2.1 is not compatible with GWT 2.2. You would need to drop back to GWT 2.1.1 or get a GWT 2.2 compatible version of GXT.
