Help, GUI Application
I'm still in search of a tutorial/video which will guide me through making my first GUI application.
I have Eclipse with the Visual Editor and I know how to whip together a few panels together?
But how can I take my GUI and make it talk ot my code?
Also, is there a guideline? Like, do you put all the GUI code in it's own class and simply initialize it in your main class? And I'll be developing under Linux.
I think the best place to start learning GUI programming is the Swing Tutorial provided by Sun Microsystems.
You may also like to have a look at NetBeans...it has a very user friendly interface for building GUI apps.
Here is flash demo of using Netbeans to build Swing Applications
If you are after a video tutorial,check out KeyStone.
I always found this pretty useful when I was starting
I don't know about any fancy GUI designers though, I hand code mine.
By the way the beauty of Java is that it doesn't matter that you are developing under linux.
