    Exclamation Where has the GUI gone?

    I am using NetBeans 7.0.1, and my GUI form builder/editor seems to have disappeared. If I right-click on the project and select the new option, the only options that I am given are to create a new class, package or interface. Its the same story if I click on a package. There is an 'other' option but none of the options are applicable.

    Why have I not got new options to create a new JFrame, or JPanel? And why is it that when I open up my existing classes that were created with the GUI builder, there is no protection on the auto-generated code, and no editor.

    I must be doing something wrong, someone please help!

    I am wondering if some screen captures would help. You can see here that there is no option for a new form - no JFrame or JPanel.

    The 'Other' option (see above capture) is no help either.

    This is an event handler which was previously auto-generated code. Although the comments remain from the code generator, there is no protection of the code against editing.

    Well someone has given me a clue (outside of this forum). Is it about enabling the SE module? And how do I do that?

    I feel like I am talking to myself here

    I tried searching Google but it didn't bring back anything useful.

    The problem is now solved though. You have to ensure that the plugin called 'GUI Builder' is enabled.
