As well as creating your composite, Jigloo will copy the jar and native libraries into your project. It copies all the native libraries, even though you generally will.

SWT and Eclipse out there? The dokumentation is quite fine but I’d like.

It copies all the native libraries, even though you generally will not need them all, but you never know Now we’ve got a Jigloo editor open, let’s change how it looks.

Click on the “Open Jigloo preferences editor” button in the toolbar to the left of the Tutirial editor. The Eclipse preferences window appears with Jigloo selected.

Choose “Appearance and Behaviour” and then “Tabbed panels”. This is useful when you want to maximize your design area, but “Split-pane” can be useful if you want to see immediately the connection between code and GUI. Now hit “OK” and close and re-open the Jigloo editor you need to do this to change to tabbed panels.

The composite is created initially with a FormLayout manager, which allows you to position elements absolutely and relatively on the form and automatically resizes them as the form changes shape.

However, other layouts are useful for certain purposes – for jugloo GridLayout is very useful for situations where your elements are layed out in a grid, with elements spanning multiple rows or columns. If you wish to set a layout manager for a composite, select it from the “layout” palette and then click on the element you wish to apply it to, tutrial right-click on the element and use the “Set Layout” options. Let’s add a “GO” button to the top right of the form. First click on the “Button” icon in the “Controls” palette and “drop” the button in the top-right corner of the form, using the alignment lines.


Then enter a name and initial text and an icon image if you tutoriial in the dialog that will appear.

You may need to re-adjust the position of the button after it is added to the form – Jigloo does a better job once it knows exactly how big the button is. Then add a CCombo control to the top left of the form, call it addressCombo with initial value “www.

You can also drag it’s bottom edge to make it the same height as the goButton. Now click on the alignment button at the top-right of the addressCombo – an “alignment helper” should pop up see image Click on the right anchor button till the anchors look the same as in the image above.

Now the addressCombo’s top, left and right edges are anchored fixed distances from the top, left and right edges of the form and it will rutorial horizontally if the form is resized. Then select the goButton and anchor it as shown in the image below, so that it stays fixed in the top right corner of the form and does not resize as the form is resized.

Now close the alignment helper and make the main form bigger because we will add more jig,oo – notice that the addressCombo gets wider. Now add a “Status” CLabel to the bottom left of the form, an “About” Button called surprise aboutButton to the bottom-right of the form, a CLabel called statusLabel stretched along the bottom edge between the other label and the aboutButton, and then add a Browser control in the center of the form. Anchor all controls so that the browser control expands in both directions and the statusLabel expands horizontally.

You can test whether your form behaves as expected when it is resized by clicking the jlgloo button in the outline view.


Add a Button and CLabel as shown, and anchor them so the label stretches both ways and the button is anchored jiglo the bottom-right.

Now, use the property editor to set the CLabel’s alignment to CENTER Since we are in the property editor, we should take a moment to look at property “categories” which organise properties into “Basic”, “Expert”, “Hidden” and any other category you might want to create.

For instance, if you scroll down a bit in uttorial property list you’ll see the “Expert” category, and a property “backgroundImage”. You may want to use this property a lot and so move it to the “Basic” category.

You can do this by simply right-clicking on a property name and choosing the category you jigolo from the list see below. Now, just to demonstrate the “Surround by” feature, right-click on the label and choose “Surround by container Then scroll down and open the “SelectionListener” node, and set “widgetSelected” to “inline” Jigloo will flip to the ttorial code editor, at the place where the widgetSelected event handler has been inserted.

Edit the code to add dialogShell. Add event code to main composite. But how will the dialog appear in the first place? We will add code to the main composite’s aboutButton event handler, so go back to the main composite and add a SelectionListener. If you like, use a “handlerMethod” instead of “inline” this time.

Then add the following code to the event handler: You are all done! A quick way to run the main method of the class you just created is to click the “Run” button in the Outline view.

And here it ttuorial running
