Can't See VLDocking Items

Postby opticyclic » Sat Feb 26, 2011 11:22 am

I'm trying to get docking into my application and am trying out VLDocking

The first part of the tutorial work well in the WindowBuilder designer.
However, the second part adds docking and the WindowBuilder designer comes up blank. :(

Is this the best place to ask for feature requests?

That would depend on the feature.

Swing Designer (WindowBuilder) is in the process of converting to an open source project at It has an extensive customization API for adding support for custom containers and layout managers.

If you want support for a specific custom components, you can do one of the following:

  • contact the creator of the component and ask that they add support for it in WindowBuilder.
  • ask the WindowBuilder committer team to add support for it.
  • add support for it yourself using the WB open source API and contribute it back to the project.
