    Question design view not available?

    I had installed netbeans 6.5 and never used it. Now I decided to try building an applet but I need a GUI designer so I can just drag and drop stuff.
    I saw a few screenshots and it looks like the IDE should have a "design" view in addition to the code view. I can't find this anywhere.
    So I uninstalled and downloaded netbeans 7 Java SE. But still, no design view at all...
    Am I missing any plugins?
    This is how I see it:


    Thanks a lot in advance!

    You don't need a GUI builder and probably would be better suited doing it by hand. However; if you insist on it, here is a tutorial on using it: Introduction to GUI Building - NetBeans IDE Tutorial

    Bad move.
    You are going to come unstuck, since you don't know Swing.
    The GUI Builder is not a novices tool.

    Thanks a lot.
    I do know Swing (I'm not an expert, but I've worked with it before). And I had to do a whole program by hand for a university project. That's how I know I definitely want to use a GUI editor now ;)
    The tutorial was very useful. My problem was I hadn't chosen a Swing JApplet but the standard Java JApplet, so the GUI editor wasn't showing. Now it is, so thank you!
